Jay Brannan

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 (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 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.). 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 2013 EP release Around the World in 80 Jays, a collection of 9 international cover songs spanning 6 different languages. Brannan returns to the road (and sky) this summer to promote his new album of acoustic originals, entitled Always, Then, & Now (available July 15).

Jarrod Dickenson

"Texas-born songwriter, Jarrod Dickenson's slightly spooky melodies and lyrics invoke a mid-Western post-war America, when cars ran on leaded gas, television hadn't yet kidnapped the country's imagination, and men wore hats every day. His reflective lyrics, almost like hand-written letters, remind us that human stories of lost love, sudden fortune, and abiding mystery transcend the decades...and nothing is better or worse right now than it's ever been."
