I Heart Jay
I'm in love. Yes, you heard it here first. His name is Jay Brannan, and I came across (not literally obviously, as that’s just tacky, and this is a high class establishment) his website whilst surfing the net tonight.
We’ll get the obvious stuff out of the way – he’s really cute in a emo/frat boy kind of way – but since it takes more than a pretty face to get me excited; he’s witty and clearly a little twisted (in a good way).
Musically, judging from the three tracks (I’ve always said I was easy), he’s a cross between early Tori (not as early as ‘Y Kant Tori’) , Tracy Chapman and Lisa Loeb.
Think acoustic, songs, simply arranged with a dry sense of humour.
We heart him (or maybe we just want his Tigger ears, not exactly sure).
If you're in New York on Friday 23rd, you can catch him playing alongside the likes of Stephen Merrit, Joel Gibb (Hidden Cameras) & Gentleman Reg at Joe's Pub.
