BEST OF 2013: JAY NASH
After a solid year of touring, LA's JAY NASH spent most of 2012 hunkered down in a Vermont studio, crafting what would become Letters from the Lost (produced by Bill Lefler & Jay Nash). The last year has been a time for stepping out and (apparently) remarkable growth in music. That ascension brought him to our attention and we invited Jay to play The Outlaw Roadshow in Austin - a two day event which drew thousands of fans from all over the world. Jay's set earned him thunderous applause and we knew we wanted to have him back.
This is the first album he has recorded outside of LA in many years. Throughout his career Nash has shared the stage with numerous acclaimed artists including Counting Crows, Maroon 5, Ingrid Michaelson, Zac Brown, Lucinda Williams, The Low Stars, and Katy Perry. Jay's albums have featured a luminary cast of musical characters: Don Heffington (drummer for Bob Dylan, Lucinda Williams, Ricki Lee Jones) Rob Wasserman (bass for Bob Weir, Ratdog) Chris Joyner (keys for Ray Lamontagne, Jason Mraz) and Jamie Wollam (drums for Jackson Browne).
OUR GRADE: A- Change was in the air for this record - and it's reflected in the music. Behind Nash's distinct vocals this time are a far more layered soul. And in support: mandolin, baritone electric guitar, and ukulele. These robust new songs are charged with energy. It was a challenge to Nash to take so many chances and head off into the unkown... These challenges are being rewarded as Letters from the Lost contains both songs that are immediately classic (like Sailor) and quietly important and immediately relevant (Wander). The full breadth of human emotion are captured here. This is career-level work from Jay Nash! This is a record you need to own. BUY IT!
