Singer-songwriter Jay Psaros is celebrating the release of his fourth album. Rather than following a specific theme, the self-titled album reveals many of Psaros’ musical interests.
“I’ve always had a wandering mind when it comes to music, often falling deeply in love with one genre before falling deeply in love with another,” says Psaros. At the core of his music, however, is a love for music. Inspired by artists like Tom Petty, Tommy Emmanuel and Phish, his songs contain notions of longing, change, love, perseverance, exploration and even a dash of humor. “Of all of my work I am proudest of this record,” says Psaros. “I had a wonderful producer, a great group of musicians, and a loyal group of people that I dare call my ‘fans’ helping to make this possible.”
Psaros is also inspired by fellow-artists on the South Shore. “It’s relatable, knowing that many of these local talents are going through some of the same things I am…fighting to be heard, riding the ups and downs of this very difficult industry. I’ve learned a lot from my peers and am grateful for that.”
A Weymouth resident, Psaros has performed frequently at regional venues like The Cape Cod Melody Tent, The South Shore Music Circus, The Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom, The Cabot Theater, The Lynn Memorial Auditorium, The Spire Center and many more. He has been fortunate to share the stage with numerous national acts such as Eddie Money, Rick Springfield, Ziggy Marley, Tower of Power, Los Lonely Boys, The Mavericks, Donovan Frankenreiter, Chris Daughtry and the Adam Ezra Group amongst others. Psaros also runs a record label called PB and Jay Records. For more information on his music, visit JayPsarosMusic.com
