- Event Details
Singer/songwriter Jay Brannan is a New Yorker by way of Texas, California, and several stops in between. He first made headlines as an actor in John Cameron Mitchell’s indie film sensation “Shortbus”, offering an international platform for his first full-length musical release, entitled goddamned, which made its debut as the No. 25 overall Top Album on iTunes.
One Billboard-charting covers EP, three world tours, and a slew of YouTube videos later, Brannan brings us Rob Me Blind, his second full-length album of originals, produced by Grammy-winning producer David Kahne (Regina Spektor, Paul McCartney, The Bangles, Lana Del Rey, etc.).
Brannan’s tenor voice combined with painfully honest lyrics surrounding taboo subjects has caught the attention of critics at such influential outlets as Rolling Stone, The Washington Post, and The New York Times, which proclaimed that Brannan “makes even the saddest lyrics easy on the ear.”
