Singin’ Like a (T)Jay Bird

Remember those long gone-BYE rock days when singers had voices that virtually roared with power, finesse and ... well... just damn great vocals. The Eagles hit those notes. As did the Doobie Brothers, Arthur Lee’s Love and blues based belters like Robert Plant and Steve Marriott. What happened to that clarion sound? It disappeared. So when a new singer/songwriter like TJay with a vibrant CD like “Take a Seat” ( www.tjaymusic.com) comes along one surely takes notice. And you can tell there is a strong gig history for this muse-traveler as well. That pickup truck looks ready for the rock rigors of the road and with songs such as “Hey Fool” and “Monte” TJay looks ready to ROLL. The Lucky Brand shades from Rem certainly complete this road show. Love that the particular style is called the Backbeat. Give it all a look and a listen. You’ll be back.
