Although most storytellers dabble in fiction, there are some that can’t help but ooze honesty. We believe the words they weave. Discover a local artist here, who does exactly that. Purposely, or not, the Massachusetts artist you are about to become acquainted with here creates music that seems to come from his gut. Meet my Local Catch of the Week Jay Rabbitt from Seekonk.
A nurse by day, singer/songwriter by night, Rabbitt comes from a musical home. It’s played a big part of his life since he was very young. Maybe it’s that early connection that keeps him honest in his music. Like life, Jay’s sound is not pretentious or weighed down in dazzle. There’s grit and grind, there’s pain and pleasure. It’s the sincerity that draws us in and makes us believe.
What’s In A Song
This storyteller has released a new single that gives us insight into how he met the love of his life. Like all good songs there is truth and embellishment. Below, you can listen to Jay Rabbitt’s original song, “Southern Comfort Girl.” He will explain exactly how the song came to be. Was there actually a ’98 Jetta blasting “Third Eye Blind?” It doesn’t even matter. It’s a picture being painted. But, at the heart of the song is the authenticity of his feelings. And nothing is more real than that.
Listen to Jay’s song and get to know him a little, here. From where he started, to who inspires him, Rabbitt shares some of his story. You can find out where to see him performing live, and how to follow him on social media. Taking these steps shows support of our New England music makers. They work so hard to get their art to you. The least we can do is show up, in person, in spirit and online. I believe you will be impressed, as I am, but the work and story of my Local Catch of the Week, Jay Rabbitt from Seekonk.
