A brief overview of NYC singer/songwriter’s music career
In case you didn’t already know, Jay Brannan is in town for the Genie Awards, for which he’s been nominated for his original song “My Love, My Love” in Cloudburst. Tonight he will be joined by Sook-Yin Lee for a show at Lee’s Palace.
Brannan’s music career took off when “Soda Shop,” his first professionally recorded number, was featured in art-sexy dramedy Shortbus. His first album, Goddamned, released under his own independent label Great Depression Records, features singles like “Can’t Have It All” and my personal favourite:
His second album, In Living Cover, features a couple of originals, such as “Beautifully,” along with a number of covers (including Joni Mitchell's “All I Want”). Brannan’s performance in Toronto is the first of a mostly European world tour to promote his new album, Rob Me Blind.
Brannan was also recently named one of Out magazine’s Top 10 Bachelors. Don’t miss Jay Brannan at Lee’s Palace tonight!
