3 Days, 7 Lovers & The Philistine, is Jay''s second CD. Attempting to focus on quality rather than quantity, it caresses 7 tracks, 6 original and one a rendition of Blind Lemon''s ''One Kind Favor''. Its got no specific style, but a flow without the hustle. It was made in the few days of studio time that Jay could afford, with beautiful layers of instrumentation donated by Jay''s talented friend, Peter Hicks.
Having enjoyed both local & international attention for his unique and heartfelt songwriting he was a finalist in both the 2006 & 2007 Tasmanian Folk Federation Songwriting Competition - winning the People''s Choice award in 2007. His song ''Falsely Accused'' was selected to feature on Neil Young''s Living With War Songs Page.

In 2006 his passion led him far and wide to the Hollywood of country music, Nashville Tennessee, to play several well-received shows, including a spirited performance at the World famous Bluebird Cafe.
He had the honour of supporting internationally acclaimed folk artist Minna Raskinen of Finland and the legendary Dick Gaughan of Scotland.
In mid 2007, he ventured to the UK for a string of shows throughout England and Scotland including the Filey Folk Festival and Cottingham Springboard Festival with a live set and interview on BBC Radio.
