Jay Brannan is a NYC-based singer/songwriter, who also appeared as an actor in John Cameron Mitchell's indie film sensation Shortbus.
After his song "Soda Shop" from the film became the highest selling song on the soundtrack album (released by Bright Eyes' Team Love Records), Brannan went on to release his own full-length album, entitled goddamned, which made its debut as the No. 25 overall Top Album on iTunes.
Brannan has since toured multiple times around the world, including the USA, Canada, the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Portugal, Sweden, Norway, Greece, Brazil, South Africa, Israel, and Australia.
In 2009, Brannan released In Living Cover, a collection of 2 original songs & 7 covers, recorded from a bedroom in a Brooklyn apartment. The album climbed to the No. 1 spot on iTunes' Top Singer/Songwriter album charts, and blasted in to the No. 10 spot on Billboard's Heatseekers chart.
Brannan continues to play live shows across the globe, and is currently recording his third studio album with renowned producer David Kahne (Regina Spektor, The Bangles, Sublime, Sugar Ray, Kelly Clarkson, Shawn Colvin, Imogen Heap, Paul McCartney, Stevie Nicks, The Strokes), with an expected release in late 2011.
