NYC-based Jay Brannan has been writing and performing his own sweet & sad folk songs—with a healthy dose of cynical 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’s apartment in Brooklyn; and Rob Me Blind, produced by the legendary David Kahne (Regina Spektor, The Bangles, Paul McCartney, Ingrid Michaelson, Kelly Clarkson, Lana Del Rey, Shawn Colvin, Stevie Nicks, 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.
He is currently writing & recording his next album, and will be previewing some of the new material at limited engagements this Spring 2013.
