Jay Regan was born in Philadelphia but raised in the suburbs. Jay became hooked on rock music listening to his older sisters and cousins playing 45's from The Beatles, Rolling Stones and other 60's and 70's icons. However as Jay got older his music tastes ventured into many other forms of music from hard rock, R&B, folk, funk, jazz and many styles in between. Inspiration was be found in many forms and lends itself to the diversity of Jay's music, one that can be hard to classify. A veteran of Philadelphia original bands in the 90's. Jay now performs his original music, in a verity of forms from solo acoustic, acoustic and foot drums, and a full band.

“ Combining different styles of music into one album is never an easy thing to do, but it doesn't seem that troublesome for Philadelphia based acoustic rocker, Jay Regan. The musician recently unleashed his second album entitled “Wash Me”, which is an exciting mix of his basic rock root with many other genres, from Funk, Country, R&B and more.” Source

“Perhaps the highlights of the album are the tracks 'March of the Romans' and 'Right Between the Eyes' where he busts out the horn section to step up the energy. The former is a snappy funky number. Punchy trumpets scream out as Regan blasts tyranny. In the latter, Regan takes on a good time late '80s, tv show theme song vibe with warm Miami beach progressions and a rollicking organ solo spilling into a feel-good guitar solo. Ironically, the jubilant tune is an homage to the Walking Dead, spelling out his plans to survive amidst the zombie apocalypse. A bizarre juxtaposition to be sure.” Source

“One of the better tunes on the album is “March of the Romans,” a classic rocker replete with brass and an organ, along with protest lyrics that vilify large corporations. The arrangement is excellent, with lots of layering: horns, drums, guitars, giving the song a big band feel. And I loved the high-pitched background vocals. Despite my complaint about the production values, Wash Me is a first-rate album. Jay Regan has mucho talent as a singer/songwriter. Wash Me is original and creative.” Source
