What a fabulous album.
This is the tenth time Jay Nash has walked into a studio and recorded beautiful songs. “I am just a patron of the arts,” he says on “The Art Thief,” a song about struggling for his love and his craft. And it’s true. This is a man who writes visually about feelings–he tells stories with sadness and truth, songs that make you want to stop and sit still and listen. Music means something to Jay Nash–he’s not jsut doing it because it’s fun, he’s doing it because he has to.
“Sometimes you want to go home…Just a little bit of hope, you carry on.” he sings on “Sometimes.” And that’s exactly what this album feels like.
Available on May 14th here and on iTunes.
