Jay Arner

Hi, this is Jay, it's 2013 and this is my artist statement.

I have music playing in my brain all the time. Sometimes something catches my attention and I do my best to follow the melody along and turn it into a song. I can't say what it sounds like to other people, but to me my music sounds like the inside of my head. Claustrophobic but cavernous, no easy resolutions, confabulated music history.

I'm a naturally shy person; I've always submerged my identity in the idea of a band. But I also recognize the value of making myself uncomfortable (personal growth), so I'm shedding the pretense of being anything but myself. I wrote, recorded, and performed all of my first record. The cover is a giant fucking photo of my face and the album is called Jay Arner.
