Bio

The Blu Jays consist of three individual talents that come together to form a unique sound that is as varied as those creating it. People from different walks of life have converged to a single point that creates something a little bit country, blues, jazz, and funky rock-n-roll.

Jay Gibson (a former Army RANGER, guitarist, and songwriter) contributes to the driving force of Blu Jays through his varied skills as a guitarist. His sound has developed from years of playing with various groups, such as the funk band "Momma Aniem," and the band he started while still in high school, "Windjam." Jay plays electric lead most days, but with Blu Jays, hard acoustic is more his style.

Susan Bishop is a mother of two, wife, and bookkeeper at Horseshoe Bend School in New Site, AL. However, she is not your typical housewife. Susan has been singing and writing songs for most of her life. During her twenties, she was the featured entertainment for several up-scale events, including an appearance on The Country Boy Eddie Show. Susan is well-versed in the "back-stage" of the music business from years of living in Nashville. Although she took years off from the music scene to raise her children, her soulful country sound has only grown better. Now, she is ready to step back into the spot light.

Amy Bishop, daughter of Susan Bishop, has every intention of living up to the standard Momma set. As great-granddaughter of the famed Alabama fiddle player, Lewis McGill, it was only natural that she was extremely proficient with a fiddle and bow even at the tender age of seven. Years of classical training infused with her mother's originals and favorites have created a musician that can't quite be called a fiddler or a violinist. Amy's playing style is a beast all its own. It is the classical meets country dipped in just a little bit of rock that ties the sound of Blu Jays together. Of course, the sound of blood harmony between mother and daughter helps a little too.
