It’s still pretty cold in NYC but with “Spring Song” by Jessy Hay I know we are close to shedding those cold winter clothes for t-shirts and sunscreen. Performed in a fun carefree jazzy bluesy style that is charming this songwriter from the Netherlands is really out to boost your spirit with “Spring Song”. His writing reminds me slightly of Randy Newmans choice of melody and harmony in the Pixar movie a Toy Story. If you’re looking for something lighthearted to lift your mood then definitely give “Spring Song” by Jessy Hay a stream below.

While busy with the session life, he started cooking his own album as a singer songwriter “Musicians in the scene know me as a guitar player, but I’ve always written songs and sung. It is like a second career of mine that is slowly revealing itself to the world”. “Stylistically the music is very diverse,” says Jessy. “I was always influenced by so many styles of music, ranging from soul, R&B, Jazz and funk through rock and blues, and pop music is something I’m attached to very much as well. My coming debut album is certainly the piece of music I’m most proud of to date!”
