Larry Jay Bio
It’s been said that country-pop singer-songwriter Larry Jay’s songs are “Five chords and the truth.” The New York native, now residing in California, injects that truth with hopeful lyrics and tasty melodies, to create his own brand of Award-winning Americana-tinged southern fried music.
A first runner-up in multiple songwriting contests, including the prestigious John Lennon Songwriting Contest, Larry Jay says he started writing and performing music “To set my soul free.” Jay has performed at the famed and historic Troubadour in Los Angeles,Bluebird Cafe in Nashville and he’s shared the stage with Neil Young sideman and member of Crazy Horse, Sonny Mone.
“When I perform, it’s just me and my guitar, and my rhythm tracks looper. I like to keep things intimate. While I’ve been told I sound like Keith Urban, I think I sound more like Neil Young. Either way, being told I’m a really great songwriter is the best compliment I could ever receive.”
Larry Jay showed off his songwriting skills on his iTunes chart-topping hits, “Night School,” “That Kind Of Love,” (#2 Christian Music Weekly), and his #1 iTunes international smash single “Wow” featuring Caeland Garner of Team Blake on The Voice. His latest single, “Unwrap You” was released on February 11th, when it reached #3 on the UK iTunes country chart. (MTS Records) With more than 150K Spotify streams and 50K Youtube video views, 2022 looks to be another big year for Larry Jay.
