Recently signed to producer super team KNS Productions (LADY GAGA, BRITNEY SPEARS, BACKSTREET BOYS), Jay Loftus, a 24 year old introspective singer/songwriter, was raised in Old Bridge, New Jersey. With thoughtful lyrics of everyday consequences, Jay’s music perfectly fuses coffeehouse acoustic and pop rock genres. Currently working on his debut album, Jay has received amazing reactions from college campuses he’s toured on the East Coast.
Jay Loftus began playing guitar for the same reason any 9 year old kid would: to be cool. But when Jay moved to a new school and became the overweight son of recently divorced parents, music became more than a social status, it was his refuge.
As a 12 year old recluse, Jay locked himself in his room transposing profound emotions into verses and melodies. Through heartache and tribulations Jay wrote about the ruthlessness of high school bullies, devastation of love loss, and sweet obsessions. High School performances eventually gained him popularity and respect.
Though Jay has been writing introspective songs about life experiences since the age of 12, his long journey as an artist and musician has just begun. “When you live what you write, the music writes itself.”
Canned Heat's performance that was originally scheduled for September 16th has been cancelled. All tickets purchased will be refunded. Be on the lookout for a makeup date in the near future.
