Larry Jay - 'What Do I Have'

A piano plays along with Larry's voice offering a deep message through this song, one which may be personal to almost everyone. A simple and gentle composition gives away a lot of emotion, especially through Larry's vocals. Easy going instrumentals and short guitar solos with layered harmonies accompanied by glittering acoustic and electric guitars are the core part of the music. Tight drums support the rhythmic pattern and also make space for crispy cymbals and hi-hats. The bridge section hits harder with interesting variations. The lyrics have exceptional importance in this song, especially the way they are conveyed. Merging the lyrics and music of this song truly makes it sound impressive.

About Larry Jay:

"It’s been said that country-pop singer-songwriter Larry Jay’s songs are “Five chords and the truth.” The New York native, now residing in California, injects that truth with hopeful lyrics and tasty melodies, to create his own brand of Award-winning Americana-tinged southern-fried music. A first runner-up in multiple songwriting contests, including the prestigious John Lennon Songwriting Contest, Larry Jay says he started writing and performing music “To set my soul free.”  Jay has performed at the famed and historic Troubadour in Los Angeles, and he’s shared the stage with Neil Young sideman and member of Crazy Horse, Sonny Mone. “When I perform, it’s just me and my guitar, and my rhythm tracks looper.  I like to keep things intimate.  While I’ve been told I sound like Keith Urban, I think I sound more like Neil Young.  Either way, being told I’m a really great songwriter is the best compliment I could ever receive.” Larry Jay shows off his songwriting skills on his latest single, “Night School,” in addition to his #1 iTunes international smash single “Wow” featuring Caeland Garner of Team Blake on The Voice and his “end the pandemic” anthem, “Worldwide Party Day.” You can hear Larry Jay weekly via Livestream on his Facebook page. When he’s not focusing on his performances and, of course, writing new songs, Larry volunteers with the local VA Hospitals and addiction recovery centres."
