"Remember when artists like Mellencamp and Springsteen brought your senses to life with their savvy brand of rootsy, bluesy, rock n roll music? Good times, right? Well, if like me, you have fond recollections of rocking out to “Small Town” and “Glory Days,” then don’t miss out on this toe-tapping trip down memory lane, courtesy of Jay Pollmann."
"It's got an infectious beat, and the lyrics are the type you just can't help belt out. If the rest of the album is anything like this track, we're all in for a real treat."
“Irresistible roots blues … reminiscent of Bruce Springsteen”
“10 foot-stomping folk rockers that tell the tale of his eastern Canadian journey”

NEW ALBUM AVAILABLE
After the adventure of a lifetime including selling all of his belongings, renovating a travel trailer and exploring Eastern Canada full time with his wife and three young boys, Jay Pollmann is back in Ontario full of inspiration and a newly ignited fire inside for his music. The foot stompin' rootsy blues singer/songwriter is ready to share his stories in song with the release of One Day Older None The Wiser, featuring a matured robust sound in comparison to his previous EP. The songs are inspired by taking chances and leaving a safe space in search of something more, it's the kind of record you'll want to take with you on your travels.
Born in the gritty steel town of Hamilton Ontario and raised outside the small village of Cayuga in the fields of Haldimand County, Jay Pollmann has intertwined the rural/urban musical divide to create a unique sound he describes as ‘foot stompin' rootsy blues’.
Primarily performing as a solo artist, Jay brings a dynamic, original and energetic ‘one man band’ type of performance to his live shows. After a 10 year career with the dirt rock trio Gruve, the woodworker turned songwriter released his first solo EP Head In The Clouds in 2017 produced by Aaron Goldstein out of Toronto. Following his travels, Jay found himself back in the studio in early 2020 to record a full LP, once again with Aaron Goldstein behind the controls. Session players included Dani Nash, Steve Marriner, Carleigh Aikins, Eric Pollmann and Jesse O’Brien.
