Needle Drop: Jay Brown, “Get Your Fill of Feelin’ Hungry”

There is something lovely and unique about writing a song that expresses gratitude for being young, hungry, and at the mercy of the elements. Singer-songwriter Jay Brown feels no shame in looking back at his early years in the great wilderness of Boone, NC where once he survived on little more than black coffee and folk songs.

As he recollects this chapter in his life, Brown seems more wistful than apathetic, providing an authentically nuanced performance for us to listen to comfortably in our air-conditioned cubicles. Backed by his deft finger picking and lilting melodies, Brown needs little more than to romanticize a few of his past experiences under the moon with the wind at his back to make us feel like we’re there with him… and it feels pretty damn good.

Brown’s eleven song LP is a honey-dipped stroll through folk, country, gospel, and other intimate forms of acoustic music. Jay’s voice may conjure up the presence of Willie Nelson, while his subject matter tends to focus on the domestic bliss he has found with his lady and child. It is an overall impressive outing for Brown who seems to be enjoying a solo departure from mainstay group, The Lazybirds.

“Get Your Fill of Feelin’ Hungry” is off Jay’s new album, Beginner Mind which is released October 14th.
