Jay Filson likes to play music. He likes it so much, in fact, that in 2017 he quit his job and moved to Nashville to pursue music full-time. Jay spent his first year in Music City playing for the masses as the Musician-In-Residence at a new high-rise apartment building downtown. Since then, he has toured the country with his songs. Drawing comparisons to the likes of Ed Sheeran and Ben Rector, Jay puts on a one-of-a-kind show by looping beatboxing, piano, guitar, and vocals all live on the spot. He gets a kick out of mixing and matching songs that wouldn’t normally go together by playing them in a new way. What would Adele + Destiny’s Child sound like? Let’s find out. How about Eminem + Miley Cyrus? Coming right up. Jay is a true singer/songwriter whose favorite way to connect with people is by sharing songs. He can’t wait to meet you at a show sometime!
