After recently touring Europe in
support of the legendary Lou Rhodes, Jay
Leighton returns to British shores this autumn
for a series of UK live dates ahead of his first
full-length album release in 2011.
music career began in 2008 with a major label deal for
his band Buffalo ’77. The trio, fronted by Jay, quickly
gained momentum and signed to Island Records, but later
parted ways with the label and split as a band.
Disillusioned with the music industry and all it had to
offer, Jay seriously considered quitting music
altogether, but soon found himself back in the studio
recording new material in the form of a self-penned
mini-album, ‘Polaroids and Stills’.
Released in late 2009, the limited edition mini-album
was well-received by press, radio and most importantly,
by fans and listeners. Its success led to a series of
shows and festivals worldwide during the first half of
2010, and soon after this, Jay found himself being
invited on a full European tour alongside Lou Rhodes.
Now back in Britain, Jay embarks upon a sporadic set of
live dates up and down the UK this autumn, as well as
heading back into the studio to record his forthcoming
debut album which is set for release in the spring.
Until then, Jay has made the beautiful ‘Night and Day’,
taken from last year’s mini-album, available for free
The remaining few copies of mini-album ‘Polaroids and
Stills’ are available via
