Jay Brannan

NYC-based Jay Brannan has been writing and performing his own sweet & sad
folk songs, with a healthy dose of cynical humor, around the globe since

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 (released by Bright Eyes'
Team Love Records).

From there, Brannan released a string of albums, all of which 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'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.)

Brannan's touring has taken him multiple times around the world, through the
USA, Canada, the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the
Netherlands, Portugal, Sweden, Norway, Greece, Brazil, South Africa, Israel,
and Australia.

This international touring is what inspired his newest release "Around the
World in 80 Jays", an acoustic collection of 9 international cover songs
covering 6 different languages, available September 3.

Brannan is simultaneously writing & recording his next album of originals,
and will be previewing some of the new material at limited engagements this
Fall 2013.
