Roots-orientated, songwriter, Jay Brown, has been playing guitar since the age of seven and writing songs since high school. Brown’s repertoire contains more than 50 original songs, as well as various covers from a wide spectrum of genres.
Brown is also a founding member of the old time, swing band Lazybirds — a band that blends a wide variety of musical styles, including jazz and blues. He has spent years traveling and playing around the U.S. with artists such as Doc Watson, Old Crow Medicine Show, and Etta Baker. In addition, he has studied, taught and performed in West Africa. A versatile musician, Brown is as much at home playing the blues in New Orleans as he is playing jazz or classical in New York City.
Below please have a listen to the track “Fire In The Sky” from Brown’s latest album titled Soul to Soul. The album is dedicated to “two great souls” — Carmela Costello and Jack Gardner.
