Jay Cannady is an American singer-songwriter living and working in Austin, TX. Jay spent his youth in rural Georgia where he was influenced early on from his mother performing bluegrass, gospel, and country music in the southeast. His personal musical journey began in 2014 after he gave up drinking and discovered a hidden talent for songwriting. Jay’s songs are honest working class gems that capture the reality of hard times in American life. His recovery from open heart surgery, financial trouble, heartbreak, and alcoholism, inspired him to write a catalog of original songs that tell it all. Imagine the truth in a Hank Williams song coupled with the gentle raspy vocal style of Lyle Lovett. His simple lyrics and humble approach are authentic and believable. Jay’s stories span from his childhood in rural Georgia to his latest adventures in the Texas Hill Country. If you enjoy Americana and roots music that lean heavily on classic country and old time rock and roll, then Jay from Georgia is an act you must see!
