Jay Johnson

Jay Johnson is an award-winning musician and songwriter who moved to London before his teenage years and began making music from a young age. Jay’s naturally curious mind led him to start learning the cello. He then taught himself how to play the guitar a few years after. Jay started listening to artists such as Bob Dylan, Paolo Nutini, and Ben Howard from his early teens, and as a result, their influences can often be seen in his original works. Filed under Folk in iTunes, there’s definitely an everyman, universal quality to Jay’s tuneful tales, but his music can’t be confined to one genre. Jay is a resident artist at the world-famous Roundhouse venue in London and is about to release his debut EP.
