Breaking through the clutter with a crisp, raw sound, Jay Clark is bringing fun and
storytelling back to guitar driven rock music. Southern Rock band from Ohio,
Growing up in Ohio, Jay played in a number of cover bands in and after college. He
decided to put down the mic for a few years, get a "real" job, and put his family first, but never gave up the dream of a life in music. Feeling the calling of the stage, he began to concentrate on writing his own songs. He wanted to tell the stories of people that left an impression on him with a little humor, similar to Kid Rock and Joe Walsh. He started putting acoustic versions of his songs on Facebook and after getting a lot of positive feedback in early 2016, packed up his gear and headed down to Nashville to record with some of the best musicians in the country.
He released a demo called Never Too Late, which is a 5 song southern rock powerhouse. It starts off with "Freight Train", which is a firecracker out of the gate. Pulsating guitars, drums, and keys giving notice that this is going to be a fun and hard rocking good time. "Shakedown" is another rocker that tells the story of a man who has been done wrong by his woman. "The River" slows it down temporarily telling the tale of a man on the run and another on his trail. Coming right out of that is the hard-nosed, "Won't Be Pushed Around" which is inspired by memories of a few bar fights back in the day. Jay lays out the consequences of picking a fight with the wrong man on a wrong night. The EP concludes with the southern rock sounds of "Whatcha Doin To Me" a song every man can relate to about getting stuck waiting on your girl. Feedback was promising but without a record deal, he went back home to concentrate on writing better material. Jay wrote 5 new songs and went back to Nashville to collaborate with his session band and new singers, Adam Cunningham and Tania Hancheroff to produce his best music yet. The first single, Leave It All Behind, has already charted and is gaining momentum. JCB is on an upward trajectory and there is no telling where this freight train is going to wind up
