Our first rehearsals were in a local park; something of singing outside, in summertime, for no one in particular, that speaks to the natural ease of our collective relationship with music” – remarks The Jayplayers, of their formation in 2013 in Hershey, Pennsylvania. Their songwriting is unassumingly authentic, derived from a shared, somewhat unconscious viewpoint. It seems their process was one in the same – to not really have a process; to write without intention, merely recording song ideas as they overcame their minds. “Our songs are most simply commenting on the human condition; words and music in harmony, made to strike a chord in the hearts of many.”
This Americana act, based around the songwriting of Keeley McCue and Chris Weidensaul, has developed from an acoustic duo into a full electric band set up as well. The inclusion of bassist Michael Broda and drummer Tyler Kollinok into the fold, has resulted in their debut LP Glitter & Wine (2016) and upcoming EP, The Jayplayers: Little Bit Country. This sophomore project, recorded in the renowned MilkBoy Studios in Philadelphia, is set for worldwide release in February 2018 across all digital platforms (iTunes, Spotify etc.).
