"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
Born in the gritty steel town of Hamilton Ontario and raised in the fields of Haldimand County, Jay Pollmann has intertwined the rural/ urban musical divide fusing folk, roots and blues into a sound he describes as ‘foot stompin' rootsy blues’.
For his latest record, the woodworker turned songwriter found himself back in the studio in early 2020 to record his second album, this time a full length LP with Aaron Goldstein producing. Session players included Dani Nash, Steve Marriner, Carleigh Aikins, Jesse O’Brien and Jay’s brother Eric Pollmann.
'One Day Older None The Wiser' was released in March 2021 with a more mature and robust sound than his earlier work. The collection of songs based on leaving everything behind in search of something more across Eastern Canada gained high praises from media outlets such as Americana UK, Rawckus Magazine, Great Dark Wonder, rootsmusic.ca and Canadian Beats to name a few.
With years of performing experience under his belt, Jay has honed a dynamic, original and energetic approach to his live shows wether it be on a festival stage or a house concert in your living room. Storytelling, slide guitar, harmonicas, foot stomping’ and some kick drum are what you can expect these days out of a Jay Pollmann show.
From small town Ontario to St. John’s Newfoundland and as far as Memphis Tennessee, Jay is forging a path all his own forever chasing down that next great song and inspiration.
