Jay Chavez has had a long and illustrious music career filled with touring and various other gigs before he finally decided to compile some of the music that he has written over a span of decades into his full-length debut album.
Jay is proud of the fact that he’s been making music since he could look over the piano keys. He earned his first performing gig at the young age of 14 and hasn’t stopped performing since. He spent the next 35 years of his life playing alongside the music industry’s most well-loved stars performing every genre imaginable.
From rock, country, classical, bluegrass, showtunes, alternative, blues, jazz, any genre anyone could ever think of, Jay has absolutely played it. The breadth of his musical experiences knows no bounds, which is what makes his entire music career such an amazing thing to witness. The vastness of his experiences has granted him even more access to certain musical styles, giving him a whole new perspective on songwriting.
Several years ago, he finally decided to release his debut album as he eventually took a break from touring to compile his written songs. With his new group called the Jay Chavez Band, Jay has finally released his first album entitled Plain Brown Wrapper. This recent step that he took to further his career has given him so much joy, creating his own music for all the world to witness has always been his lifelong dream after all.
Plain Brown Wrapper was born out of Jay’s hard work and passion. He did all of the instrumental parts on the album himself, and he also wrote all of the lyrics. He even had a personal hand in making sure that each part played perfectly in the recording studio.
Each song on Plain Brown Wrapper draws heavily on Jay’s personal life experiences. It became very important to him to get the perfect sound to match with the story he was trying to tell, in order to connect with his fans.
With the release of his first and second singles, Jay wanted to finally get back into touring during the Summer. However, the world suddenly took a massive blow in the form of a global pandemic. Throughout these dark times, Jay still makes sure to keep the spark of hope alive.
As an artist and a musician, he has taken it upon himself to create music that lingers in the minds of the people and inspires them to have hope. In today’s current climate, Jay believes that unity, compassion, and love are the most important things to have. He wants his music to touch lives and incite a positive change in the world.
When he’s not out touring or creating music, Jay Chavez enjoys a peaceful life in the mountains of Northern California alongside his wife, his mother, and his pets. He prefers to be hands-on when it comes to his property, spending most days fixing things himself. Through his hard work and dedication to his craft, it’s only a matter of time before his music will be a worldwide sensation.
