Country-pop singer-songwriter Larry Jay says he started writing and performing music “To set my soul free.” Originally from New York, now residing in California, Jay’s songs have been called “Five chords and the truth.” He 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, Jay has performed at the famed and historic Troubadour in Los Angeles, 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.” Aside from his rich musical career, Larry spends his time volunteering with the local VA Hospitals and addiction recovery centers.
