About Us...





Jay Burn is a singer, songwriter from the San Francisco Bay Area. With influences ranging from The Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash to Neil Young, Tom Petty and more eclectic ones, like Sparklehorse. Jack Johnson and Foy Vance are a couple of the contemporary musicians he has been compared to.


When asked, “How would you describe your music?” his response was…


“I feel the music crosses multiple styles and genres. Definitely based in Rock, an Americana it also shows my Country and Folk, as well as Punk influences. I like to try and dabble in moments of psychedelia at times too.” – Jay Burn


Jay has had the opportunity to work with a list of very well respected musicians and engineers to bring his story telling song creations to life. The most recent releases feature Jay Lane (Bob Weir’s RatDog, Further, Primus & Golden Gate Wingmen), Robin Sylvester (Bob Weir’s RatDog, Ry Cooder & Kate Wolf) and Jason Crosby (Phil Lesh and Friends, Susan Tedeschi & Eric Clapton) to name a few. He has recorded multiple releases at TRI Studios, in San Rafael, California.


When  asked, “When you write a song, what is your approach?” his response was…


“Many times it starts with a melody playing and dancing it's way though my mind. Then I like to focus my attentions towards lyrical content and finding the hook. It’s important to me that the song I’m writing, conveys its story.” – Jay Burn


~  Thank you for your time, interest and support  ~

PRESS for"Burnt Blue"

July 25, 2015


"J Burn and company does on his “Burnt Blue” E.P. is exploit our musical history, like a PhD candidate supporting a thesis in rock ‘n’ roll history."


- Christopher Millard,

"There's a feel-good vibe about his style as soon as the first chords ring out. 'Burnt Blue' has the kind of camp fire feel that makes it easy to settle into and relax with."

- Evan Morgan Jodloman

The News Hub

"The gentle-nature of the music and songs is simply something that anyone could pop on & listen to, no matter what age."


- Jer@SBS,





Sept. 27, 2015


"Each of the four songs represents a subtly different shade of folk music, coming together for one fascinating and heartfelt collection that is Burnt Blue."


- Cody Conard,

The Big Take-Over




Sept. 24, 2015


""In Burnt Blue, Burn has shed the psychedelic tones and instead focused his lyrics on bucolic imagery and earthly imaginings of the quotidian. He sings of trains, yesterdays and dusty trails in what could be construed as a hippie riff on the Southern experience.""

- MacEagon Voyce,





Been keeping  really busy in the studio working on multiple releases, lots of  new material.


Looking forward to getting out and about for some live shows soon!


Stay tuned...


Cheers, Jay Burn
