A country singer with a soulful bent, Kirk Jay first made an impression in 2018 as a contestant on NBC’s televised musical competition The Voice. Jay placed third on the 15th season of the show, but that was enough to propel him out of the bar circuit he played in his home state of Alabama.

 

Born in the small Alabama town of Bay Minette on July 1, 1996, Kirk Jay grew up poor, finding solace in music. As a child, he sang in the choir and learned how to play drums, but he didn’t go professional until he entered his late teens. Around 2015, he started to gain headway through open mic performances. Eventually, he assembled a backing band called Kuntry Funk. In 2018, he was cast on the 15th season of The Voice, where he became part of Blake Shelton’s team. Jay lasted until the season finale, placing third overall.

Brothers Noah and Josh Thompson put their guitars together to form Roman Street. Since the college years, this brotherly jam session has developed into a Billboard/iTunes charting band who many have dubbed ‘the next generation’ of Jazz Fusion. Roman Street, named for an old roman street in the Alps where they studied guitar, is an internationally trained instrumental band specializing in improvisational fusion of Classical, Gypsy and Contemporary Jazz, Latin, and Nuevo Flamenco. A departure from the over-produced music that is out there today, they keep it simple—the beautifully organic sound of acoustic instruments played by talented people who love what they are doing. Whether performing as a guitar duo, or with a backing band, Roman Street astounds with music that appeals to fans of many genres.
