Album Notes
Jay Brannan is a singer/songwriter who recently appeared as "Ceth" in John Cameron Mitchell's latest feature film "Shortbus." He writes and performs his own music, and is rising to the top of the unsigned folk artist charts on MySpace. His self-released 4-song EP "Unmastered" made its debut as the No. 2 Top Folk Album on iTunes. Jay's song "Soda Shop," featured in "Shortbus" and found on the film's soundtrack, was also featured on YouTube's homepage and has accumulated over 1 million views. Another video, "Body's a Temple," was recently voted YouTube's No. 3 Best Music Video of the Year for 2006. Jay's music deftly blends folk and rock with a slight touch of pop, and bridges the gaps between hope and bitterness, courage and insecurity, honesty and denial.

"Unmastered" is only available through digital download, and can be found on iTunes and other digital music stores worldwide.

I Need More
Well, after one listen I just wanted to hear more. His voice is so very crisp and sweet, and beautifully expressive. The songs bare the emotions and experiences with wit, intelligence and empathy. I had to rush out and order the new CD, which is every bit as good. Can't wait to catch him performing live.

Jay Brannan's "Unmastered" A Short But Sweet Delight
The short but sweet 4 song long EP delivers itself in a soft but sharp way. Brannan's pointed lyrics, angelic voice (which at times evokes...Joni Mitchell?), and stumming solo guitar work in perfect harmony. This piece lacks some diversity from song to song, but prmoises so much more to come!

Michael Ommundson

Awesome! and just a taste, I'm brimming with anticipation for a forth coming album?

A Sensual Journey
This album is amazing. From the start of the first song to the conclusion of the last, Jay grabs you and demands that you sit and listen to what he has to say. With his haunting chords and angelic voice, two forces are brought together to invoke the hidden emotions that are just waiting to surface. Listening to his album and all of the other beautiful songs that he has written, I have come to the realization that this journey that he has taken me on is only beginning. I can’t wait to hear more from this wonderful, beautiful, talented and soulful man.
