Born in East Los Angeles and raised in the suburbs of the San Gabriel Valley, Jay Smalls has carved out his own niche in the local LA Rock n' Roll / Punk scene.
Having been a musician since the age of 8, Smalls had the fortune of being exposed to and embracing such diverse musical influences ranging from classics such as Django Reinhardt, Gene Vincent, The Beatles, ZZ Top, Neil Young and Bruce Springsteen to more modern and edgier fare like The New York Dolls, Black Flag, The Clash, The Smiths, Hot Water Music and The Gaslight Anthem.
Drawing from these sources, Smalls has devised a style best described as "Blue Collar Folk"; songs written by a regular, everyday guy for other regular, everyday people.
Be sure to catch him live and experience the perfect marriage of Punk, Classic Rock and Folk in its ragged glory.
