Jeremy Jay
Dream Diary [full-album stream]

Jeremy Jay’s new album, Dream Diary, is due next Tuesday, April 12, on K Records. In a wise move, Jay is currently offering the full album as a stream. According to TMT’s Rowan Savage (whose review of the album will be up shortly), “Jay has the fragility, beauty and occasional majesty of any of the Sarah Records roster, without the frustratingly cultivated naiveté or humorlessness.” Agreed.
