Jay is reappearing on the music scene after nearly a decade away. Back in the late 90’s he was one of Georgia’s premier acts playing his brand of original country music at sold out venues such as Eddie’s Attic, The Freightroom, The Holly Theatre, and Nashville’s Bluebird Café to mention a few. He has shared the stage with notable acts such as Grammy award winning Zac Brown, Georgia Hall of Fame inductee Jan Smith and Atlanta’s favorite Kurt Thomas. His original self titled album in 1997 included collaborations with Grammy nominated Shawn Mullins.
After leaving Nashville in 2000 to focus on raising his family in the mountains of North Carolina, he’s been inspired by many of those artist to get back to his love of writing, performing, and recording. In his latest album entitled “Sweet”, Jay has partnered up with long time friend and award winning producer Rodney Mills. The album is a tribute to his faith, family, friends, and so many who have encouraged him to fulfill his love of writing. He is especially thankful to his long time friend Kurt Thomas for collaborating with him on much of the new material and encouraging him to record this new project.
Be prepared to tap your toes, laugh out loud, and grab a tissue for the touching tributes as you listen to this collection of heart felt songs.
