Fall 2014 Tour – Meet the Contenders

Comments Off on Fall 2014 Tour – Meet the Contenders

Goodness gracious.  Fall is off to a spectacular start. 


I hope that the same is true for you, wherever this finds you.  For me, fall has become touring season and so now, the road calls.  I returned home to Vermont last week from an incredible couple of weeks in the Netherlands and Germany, where I played eleven concerts in eleven days, with a few radio and video tapings thrown into the mix for good measure.  It was a great experience through and through and now I am true fighting form for the American Tour campaign which lays ahead.


This week, I am playing four solo acoustic performances in New England.  Advance tickets for each of the shows are still available and include an exclusive digital download of three new unreleased tracks, including one track from the upcoming ‘Meet the Contenders’ EP.  


(download link will be sent by the venue on or before the day of the show)

You may have caught glimpses already of me mentioning my new band with Josh Day, ‘The Contenders’.  I couldn’t be more excited about this project and the music that we are making together.  This is the band that I have always wanted to be in.


The first track from our EP,  our namesake, ‘The Contender’ can be previewed at CMT Edge right now…here.  Suffice, to say, we are chomping at the bit for you to hear the rest of the EP and to share these songs with you in a live setting.


If you’re trying to imagine what to expect from these upcoming shows, just take everything that you have ever liked about a ‘Jay Nash’ show, add a soul stirring harmony and a sticky back beat…throw that in a blender with equal parts of folk, rom n roll revival and heartbreak and you’ll be on the right track.  This tour is going to be a heck of a good time.


The EP will be released everywhere digitally on Tuesday, November 18th.  Next week, keep an eye out for a special vinyl pre-order in cooperation with Pledge Music.  All pre-orders will include an instant digital download of the EP and ‘Live at SPACE’, along with exclusive, behind the scenes content and updates from our US tour.
