Product Notes

Jay's HIT Single 'ANYTHING' Climbs to #10 on Chart!!! Based in Naples, Florida, Jay Seidl is a born performer. He wears his influences on his sleeve unapologetically and has painstakingly mastered a variety of pop, rock and country idioms. He grew up as a troubadour, performing songs about people's everyday lives, and he hasn't lost sight of that as he's matured as an artist. Jay's strongest point on his self-titled debut CD, 'Jay Seidl Singer - Songwriter', is his understanding that great artists are defined by their versatility, not virtuosity. On 'Hollywood Days', he gives a nod to Ray Davies while interpreting the theme in his own way - and we can't help but think that Craig Fuller would be proud of 'Something 'Bout A Cowboy' or 'Love's Here To Stay'. 'Beach Life' combines the New Wave tension of The Cars and Blondie with the laid back Floridian sensibilities of Jimmy Buffet and has a nice looping guitar lead as a bonus. He manages to incorporate the sounds of CSN, Roger McGuinn, Gram Parsons and even Robyn Hitchcock in subsequent tracks. Jay offers a compelling bid to become the successor to another late and lamented great, Lowell George, as the custodian of all that's good and pure about Southern music, and that would be a good thing. 'Singer - Songwriter' opens with 'Grand Man', a tribute to John Lennon, one of his early influences. The track is complimented by a truly gorgeous and sensitive video. The clip is all stills and dissolves featuring John, and it is a very moving clip, to say the least. John's death diminished us all, and the song and the video capture that in a way that hasn't been done before. Say what you want about Elvis, or Michael Jackson, or anyone else.....THE most important and influential rocker of all time was John Lennon, and this is a fitting tribute. The term 'singer - songwriter' is often used as a broad stroke to define many artists of wildly diverse sounds, all the while never pinpointing the quintessential singer, songwriter. Make no mistake, however, by combining all these influences, Jay Seidl has crafted a sound that is all his own, and his music is accessible to a very wide spectrum of listeners. This singer, songwriter has taken cues from the very best, and the end result is a collection of songs that has something for everyone, and displays Jay's skill, passion and precision for his own music.
