Introducing Jay Tighe
Jay Tighe has released his debut album “Driven” which features 11 tracks all written by Jay. The album, released independently on iTunes, GooglePlay, Amazon, and jaytighe.com, features some of Nashville’s best musicians and was produced by Otto D’Agnolo with Jay Tighe. “Driven” is the perfect title for Jay’s debut album as he was in complete control of the project from writing all the material to co-producing to designing the album packaging to guaranteeing a creative and amazing debut video. Every detail mattered.
Jay’s lead single off "Driven“ is the catchy country sing-a-long "Red Flags" dealing with the warning signs of any new relationship. The song is accompanied by an incredibly fun video directed by Nayip Ramos in which Jay is seen battling the outcomes of ignoring the red flags. The follow-up single to "Red Flags" is the anthem "Driven" with a video guest starring MMA champion Keith Kirkwood. The final single off the album is the ballad "All To Me" which features a stunning video shot on the island of Oahu in Hawaii and is all about love. The song is an instant fan favorite and has wedding song written all over it.
Other key tracks on the album include “Saturday Night (Get It)”- a weekend party anthem with an infectious hook and “Tattoo This” – a non-love song. The album’s opening track “Driven” clearly sets the stage for 11 well-crafted songs with enough diversity to keep it fresh, yet full of radio friendly melodies.
This Midwest raised, St Louis hometown singer says artists ranging from Rascal Flatts to Kenny Rogers to George Michael have influenced his mix of country & pop singing/songwriting. Jay has shared the stage with artists including Sugarland, Jason Aldean, Enrique Iglesias, and many others.
Jay’s list of accolades include winning Top Country Male at the Talent Quest 2013 Nationals, San Diego's genre 70's/80's Entertainer of the Year, and countless other awards. And who can forget his run on the hit Hawaiian television show "Hawaii Stars" where he earned 12 perfect scores, over 100,000 phone votes, and winning the judges over in the finals with a perfect 10 from each of them. His unique mix of song and stage performance easily made him an audience favorite. He would later return for the final season of "Hawaii Stars" sweeping the Viewer's Choice competition undefeated. The viewing audience chose Jay week-after-week as their favorite contestant.
Jay recently released his "Stripped" EP for his fans featuring acoustic versions of some of the songs from his debut album including "Red Flags", "Driven", and an incredible piano and strings version of "All To Me".
