Jefferson Jay Simply put, Jefferson Jay does things that nobody else would even try. On Thanksgiving 2011, Jay completed the largest “365 project” in the history of the worldwide web. He posted three music videos every day; an original song, a cover song and an archive performance by Jay or one of his friends at a live show. He blogged along with this artistic experiment for a full year. His Operation 365 2 is ongoing. He also produced his 24 Hours of Free Music concerts in four occasions.


Whether with The Jefferson Jay Band, or hosting Open Mics and other events, Jay’s showcases are exciting, unpredictable adventures. He is an optimistic idealist with Woodstock-era beliefs, working hard to bring about the positive change this world needs. His 6 CDs are available on iTunes, Spotify, Bandcamp, or at
