This event is all ages
A Texas native turned New Yorker, Jay Brannan is an authentic, solo singer/songwriter who loves to sing, loves to travel, and writes from the heart. He has been playing his sweet & sad folk songsâ€”tempered with a healthy dose of humorâ€”all around the globe since 2006.
He also appeared as an actor in John Cameron Mitchellâ€™s indie film sensation Shortbus, in which his song â€śSoda Shopâ€ť was the highest selling song on the filmâ€™s soundtrack album (released by Bright Eyesâ€™ Team Love Records).
Brannan has 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 Brodyâ€™s Brooklyn apartment; Rob Me Blind, produced by the legendary David Kahne (Regina Spektor, The Bangles, Paul McCartney, etc.); Around the World in 80 Jays, a collection of 9 international cover songs spanning 6 different languages; and Always, Then, & Now, his latest full-length album of originals.
Brannanâ€™s touring has taken him multiple times around the world, throughout the USA, Canada, the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Portugal, Sweden, Norway, Greece, Brazil, South Africa, Israel, and Australia. He remains on the road (and in the sky), occasionally stopping to perform songs from his newest EP New York, New York, as well as old favorites.
"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."
