Album Notes
Jay Gough was a member of the early 80's metal band Megattack, whose recordings you will also find here at cdbaby. These new tracks, recorded at the legendary Sugar Hill Studio in Houston, demonstrate the wide range of his songwriting ability. Contrasted with the heavy metal sound of his past it reveals a softer, more tender side of the hard-as-nails badass metal man.

When Megattack broke up for the final time Jay (or Jake Ozlo, as he was then known) gave up the music business and disappeared into obscurity in rural Kansas to raise his family. In 2010 he met and later married the woman who not only encourages him to be a musician, but inspires much of the music as well. My Muse was written for her as an instrumental expression of his love when words simply could not convey the magnitude of the emotion he was feeling. Going Home is a tribute to his father who always called Jay by his first name, Loren. His father lived to hear him play it for him solo, but not long enough to hear this completed recording.

Coming out of retirement and writing new songs in a style so unlike his earlier work has transformed metal man Jake Ozlo into Loren Jay Gough, a more mature songwriter with much broader appeal. He still has a metal project on the side, but his main focus is on the band he currently writes and performs with, the Sawdust Road Band featuring Mary Michelle. Look for an album of their original songs coming soon to cdbaby.com. More instrumentals are also in the works.

Accompanying Loren Jay on the Sugar Hill Sessions are Mark Andes (of Heart, Firefall, etc.) on bass guitar and Tyson Seth on drums. The studio engineer is Nicholas Patronella. They are all so good at what they do, it made laying these tracks a real pleasure. A special note of thanks to Dan Workman for the loan of his white Robin guitar, said to be a gift from none other than the Rev. Willie G himself, Billy Gibbons. It provided the rich, full, fat, round tones Loren Jay was looking for on Going Home.

Thank you for downloading the music and please keep listening. There's a lot more to come.
