Jay Psaros returns to Boston
Boston musical minstrel Jay Psaros will be performing a homecoming show at Boston’s House of Blues Foundation Room on September 9th. This show will celebrate his return after three months on the road across the United States and the release of his sophomore album On Up the Road. Psaros’ touring has taken him from Boston to Los Angeles, up to the Pacific Northwest, through Alaska and back. Throughout the tour, he performed over 35 shows and received praise along the way. Psaros’ show was noted as “staff picks” by both The Amarillo Globe in Texas and The Santa Fe Reporter in New Mexico. The Liberty Lake Splash in Spokane, Washington noted Jay’s strong recordings while reveling, “Seeing these musicians [Jay Psaros and his tour mate Olivia Brownlee] perform showed me what real artists they were.”
In Psaros’ short time as a professional musician, he has racked up accolades from numerous Boston-area publications for his sincere songwriting. About On Up the Road, Performer Magazine wrote, “This is a soothing and vital addition to one’s record collection.” The Patriot Ledger awed, “Troubadour Jay Psaros is literally a one man band” and called his debut album Tripping and Running one of the “Top Ten Albums of 2010.” His music spans a variety of genres, allowing his music to be featured at stations ranging from Pixy 103 (Cape Cod’s Rock) to WUMB 91.9 FM (Boston’s folk station). He was named an “Artist on the Verge” by 88.9 WERS and has performed regularly on the station’s famous “Live Music Week.” WATD 95.9 FM calls Jay “An amazing songwriter and articulate storyteller.”
In true troubadour fashion, Jay will be performing solo at the House of Blues foundation room, starting at 9 p.m.
