Watch & Listen
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
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.
A voice and a guitar: Paired just right, they can cut through a moment and leave an imprint that lasts a lifetime. As music fans, we live for those rare songs that introduce themselves and become bookmarks in our history. With his debut, “Beginning”, Orlando, Florida’s Matthew Fowler has created an entire album worthy of inclusion in that sacred space.
Fowler is nineteen. These are three words that you will probably repeat incredulously to yourself as you make your way through “Beginning”. His voice and songs convey an understanding of the human experience that extends well beyond his years, and yet they so perfectly capture the weight and significance of what it means to be young.
Calling on a work ethic derived by helping out at his parents’ restaurant and catering businesses from the time he was thirteen, Fowler used borrowed microphones and recorded this debut almost entirely live; a feat rarely seen these days. When this restless determination is coupled with his immeasurable talent, it’s difficult to foresee any limitations to what Matthew Fowler’s accomplishments might come to include. For now though, it is enough to have “Beginning” — the first offering toward what promises to be a long and meaningful body of work.
