I am Jay Regan, aka Just Jay I am a Singer-songwriter and performer from Philadelphia. I am the former writer and lead vocalist of many Philadelphia bands now performing my own material, usually in a solo acoustic setting.
My music is rock based rock that incorporates varied musical styles such as classic rock, modern rock, R&B, and others. I draw my inspiration from many things in my life, including my family, my inner most feelings, and sometimes world events.

I returned to music a few years ago concentrating on performing cover material on acoustic guitar and vocals, but realized I wanted people to hear my own songs. I began incorporating my music into my cover set list and when I had enough songs I began playing original only shows and open mics and finally original shows solo and with a band.

On May 15, 2014 I released my 17 track debut CD “Dreams & Nightmares” recording a selection of my songs I had written over a period of the last 10 years. As of April 7, 2017 I wrote and recorded my follow up album called Wash Me, because the songs are a bit more “dirtier”. These songs were written and performed in between my first CD came out.
My focus now is to continue to perform and share my music with a larger audience, where I hope people will discover something that touches them, makes them think, or just want to get up and move.

Press:

“One of the better tunes on the album is “March of the Romans,” a classic rocker replete with brass and an organ, along with protest lyrics that vilify large corporations. The arrangement is excellent, with lots of layering: horns, drums, guitars, giving the song a big band feel. And I loved the high-pitched background vocals. Despite my complaint about the production values, Wash Me is a first-rate album. Jay Regan has mucho talent as a singer/songwriter. Wash Me is original and creative.”

“Playing a myriad of different genres on his latest body of work, Regan has released a lively and colorful collection of music that will attract fans of 90’s bands for its nostalgic and carefree style. While the record does not have a clear path, where Regan is concerned, this doesn’t matter much as each song stands on its own, ready to connect with its own group of listeners.”
- Lauren Gribble, Listen Here Reviews (Apr 26, 2017)

Jay is back with another collection of raw rockin’, pure jammin’, aurally stimulating goodies with Wash Me. The foundation of Jay Regan‘s music is definitely rock and roll but he infuses that foundation with his own blend of elements from southern rock, classic rock, acoustic rock and Americana to create a modern but familiar mix of good ole fashioned rock and roll. From the opening Whiskey Song to the closing Insomnia, Wash Me is the perfect addition to any rockers music collection. Jay’s song crafting skills, his musicianship and his years of experience set him apart from the average independent musician and guarantees a much needed consistency that never disappoints.”
