Music

Humans & Mountains is the second solo album from multi-instrumentalist, Jay Maloney. You will hear echos of Tim O'Brien, REM, Rush, and Sam Bush. Jay is a bluegrass musician on mandolin and guitar. However, his first instrument is drums and this shines through as the album progresses. Jay relishes the creative process. This collection of original songs brilliantly conveys his love for not only bluegrass, but folk, pop, and rock music.
