JAY BROWN and THE EVERYDAYS Appearing Mon Jan 16th 2017 at 7pm

Tickets: $8

Multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter Jay Brown is the the sole member of the Jay Brown One-Man Band, but he also enjoys getting together with his fellow local singer-songwriters. Every month Brown’s Mountain Made Music series pairs Brown with other distinctive regional voices on the White Horse Black Mountain stage for solo and collaborative sets. The next installment features dynamic Black Mountain indie folk duo The Everydays on Monday, January 16 at 7 p.m.

Tim Marsh and David Zoll of The Everydays have a high profile on the local music scene. Marsh plays with Chalwa, The Asheville Horns, and Wiseapple (reggae, New Orleans funk and bluegrass, respectively) and Zoll with his own rock band and the Cajun/zydeco outfit Bayou Diesel. They first played together in an electric band that performed Marsh’s original songs, but the realization that they shared an appreciation for acoustic roots music and vocal harmonies led to the formation of The Everydays in 2012. The duo’s sound has been described as “Americana with an indie edge”, driven by the strong guitar guitar skills of both members and seamless two-part harmonies. Their sophomore 2016 CD, When It’s All Over, is a strong collection of ten original songs from the pens of both artists.
Ketch Secor of Old Crow Medicine Show calls Jay Brown “the most authentic songster to come out of the Carolina High Country since a man named Doc Watson”.

A singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, he has hundreds of classic songs in his repertoire as well as a hundred-odd originals. Brown’s musical tastes and talents are wide ranging, as evidenced by his membership in the Boone-based roots band The Lazybirds, Indian-flavored world music group Shantavaani and early-jazz cats Swing Guitars. In 2007 he founded The Jay Brown One-Man-Band, in which he deftly handles vocals, guitar, harmonica, percussion and piano.
