MP3 Jay Holcomb - Save It for a Rainy Day
One of those moments where you feel in touch with nature, yourself, and who you are | Exploring the outer reaches of our universe | Timelessness: what Earth was before mankind | Mystery: enticing women with long skirts, dark skin and thick accents.
Jay Andrew Holcomb was born on October 11th, 1984, in Orlando, Florida. He started taking piano lessons with his younger sisters, Whitney and Laura, from his mother (Jennifer Bouwens) when he was about eight years old. Over the next few years he continued playing off and on until starting lessons with Pat Stodden (Bremerton, WA). These lessons continued until his family relocated to Cedarburg, Wisconsin. When Jay entered high school he started jazz piano/music theory lessons with Jay Mollerskov (Milwaukee, WI) and continued for a year and a half.
These semi-sporadic periods of lessons were complemented by constant interaction with other musicians throughout middle and high school in talent shows, community service, and accompaniment in many different venues, including singers'' auditions/performances, swing and women''s choir, jazz band, and five theatrical productions. Jay also performed solo and accompanied at the Wisconsin State Solo/Ensemble festival near the end of his junior year (the only year he competed).
Now at the University of Washington, Seattle, Jay is a French Major/Music Minor. He played regularly at Restaurante Pomodoro for a year and half, and managed to take a couple secondary classical piano lessons through the U. Last year he joined two Univeristy choirs and began singing lessons.
Over the three or four years preceding the release of Save It for a Rainy Day, Jay was gradually expanding his repertoire and (mostly unintentionally) accumulating original compositions. By the time he was a senior in high school, he knew that he would produce his own album eventually-although he had no experience and few connections, it would happen one way or another. Then in October 2004, about a year and half after graduating from high school, Jay decided it that the time had come. He began making phone calls, practicing songs, and sketching the album''s musical layout (for more Album History see https://www.tradebit.com
Save It for a Rainy Day was released in early April, 2005.
Jay continues to be involved with music on a daily basis. He hopes to find a way to make a living as a musician, but regardless of achieving financial success, he assures his fans that he will continue to write, produce, and perform.
