Singer-songwriter Roy Jay will release his second album, Fairfax Avenue, on August 31, 2010, on Rock Ridge Music. Laced with blues, roots rock, and grittier, more focused, groove-driven flavors than his past work, Fairfax Avenue is the follow-up to “Lucky Guy,” an album which ran the musical gamut and drew comparisons to Paul Simon, Bob Dylan and Jimmy Buffet. Fairfax Avenue is much more the real me,” says Jay. “My first album, ‘Lucky Guy,’ felt like it had sort of a split personality.” On his new album, Jay has found his groove, a gritty and bluesy groove that’s simultaneously easy-going and laid back, perfectly reflecting the life of the man within. It’s an album of self-assured focus, where Jay moves past various influences to become the artist he’s always wanted to be.
