Jeremy Jay debuts "Splash"

Jeremy Jay debuts "Splash," preps for an upcoming European and US tour

Splash [KLP218], the third album by Jeremy Jay, was recorded over the summer of 2009, while Jeremy was living in London. It mixes a deeply personal, chopped-up narrative with crunchy guitars and sky-high synths. Splash is a sonic postcard that tells the story of a life picked up in a new and unfamiliar environment; that fresh ambition of a new life.
After a six-week stint on the road, Jay headed to London's Fortress Studio with his band (Jet Marshall on guitar, Tony Harewood on bass and Jacob Grace on drums). On Splash Jeremy sings with the most conviction and passion he has ever shown. He is still dreaming, but this time he's looking down from the rooftops, rather than up to the sky, and the intense life he evokes is anything but everyday.

“Jeremy Jay plunders the murky depths of ‘50s rock n roll nostalgia, and occasionally flirts with late ‘70s New Wave experimentation akin to Jens Lekman or Arthur Russell, with a saccharine innocence and rare emotional vulnerability.” - Soma Magazine
Jeremy Jay was born in Chula Vista, California. As a singer, he got his start touring the west coast of the United States and pressing his first few singles. In 2010 Jeremy will see a dual release of his albums, Splash in May followed by Dream Diary in the Fall.
In addition to numerous singles beginning in 2007 with Airwalker and We Were There;
His debut lp A Place Where We Could Go, and sophmore release Slow Dance recieved critical acclaim.

Jeremy currently lives in London, England.
