Jay Bragg

ARTIST. SONGWRITER.

 

A life of music is all Jay Bragg has ever known.

The son of a professional singer, Jay’s childhood was filled with pillars of country, rock, rhythm and blues. Giants like Johnny Cash, Ray Charles and Willie Nelson along with family sing-a-longs helped mold his style as not only a singer/songwriter but also a passionate entertainer.

Upon moving to Nashville, Jay quickly gained attention from AJ's Good Time Bar - the Lower Broadway honky tonk owned by country legend Alan Jackson. Soon, Jay Bragg - with a performance style he describes as "75% George Strait, 25% Bruce Springsteen" was booked several nights a week - and now performs Thursday and Sunday residencies at AJs.

Before moving to Nashville, Jay spent the last decade based out of Maine, recording and touring from Bangor to Houston with the classic country band North of Nashville. The band routinely played over 200 shows a year and went on to open for artists like Dierks Bentley, Brothers Osborne and Chris Stapleton and won New England Music Awards “Best Country Act 2015” before Jay decided to move to Tennessee and launch a solo career.

Jay Bragg will be releasing his debut solo record in 2018.
