Waterford City & County Council's Arts resource site
Central Arts, April 20th – 9pm
Singer-Songwriter jayson Bratten will be performing at Central Arts on April 20th at 9pm.
Jayson Bratten is an Irish musician, singer and songwriter from Longford in Ireland. Jayson’s music influence and style began to develop in the mid 2000’s when he lived in Galway.
While busking on the streets of the city of the tribes, Jayson began to come into his own and develop a distinct style and sound. This was further impacted, by his years traveling to Belgium, Canada and Australia.
These experiences led to what would be one of the biggest influences of his song writing. Jayson described “The more I traveled, the more people, places and stories I encountered, song writing became a way of documenting my travels and my experiences”.
The eclectic mix of music and lyrical influences during this time can be seen, in his profound use of narrative and poignant lyrics in his songs. Soon after returning from traveling this outpouring of creativity resulted in his first album “Sex and Propaganda” which he released in early 2015.
In 2016 Jayson created a new collection of material. He finished his new album in late 2017 in Orphan Studios in Dublin. Jayson worked on his album with distinguished producer John Henry, who recorded material with fellow Irish artist Donol Lunny, Luka Bloom and Scottish band Simple Minds. Jayson’s completed his long awaited second album “Misery Loves Company” which is set for release in March 2018.
Doors open at 9pm – ID is Required.
