"Not for the faint of heart ... but perfect for the brokenhearted"
A Texas native turned New Yorker, Jay Brannan has been writing and performing his own sweet & sad folk songs, tempered with a healthy dose of humor, around the globe since 2006. He also appeared as an actor in John Cameron Mitchell's indie film sensation "Shortbus," in which his song "Soda Shop" was the highest-selling song on the film's soundtrack album. From there, Jay released a string of albums that topped the iTunes Singer/Songwriter & Billboard Heatseekers charts: "goddamned," produced by Will Golden (Meiko, Michelle Branch); "In Living Cover," a collection of 2 originals & 7 covers, recorded from a bedroom in his friend Drew Brody's Brooklyn apartment; and "Rob Me Blind," produced by the legendary David Kahne (Regina Spektor, The Bangles, Paul McCartney, Kelly Clarkson, Lana Del Rey, etc.). Gen Art Pulse has called Jay "the male Joni Mitchell," and The New York Times raves that "his tenor voice makes even the saddest lyrics easy on the ear."
