Jay Bratten

Innovative, electrifying, and zealous are three words that describe the passion and drive found in bassist, Jay Bratten. Bratten has been playing music virtually all my life, being born and raised in a musically gifted family. He started off on drums and then tickled the keys a bit, which led him to the key bass. Happenstance would have it one day that the keyboard was broken and there were no other keyboards to play. So, he picked up an old raggedy four-string bass... and fell in love instantly!

Bratten’s debut project entitled “Hymns My Way” presents 16 of Gospel’s greatest hymns to remind us of the foundational truths of our Christian faith etched in our hearts by Gospel music more than 200 years ago. Including songs like “At The Cross,” “Precious Lord” led by his mother and accompanied by his cousin, musician and producer William “JB” Bratten, “My Help” led by solo artist and musician Thomas “TC” Clay, “There Is a Fountain” led by Dove-nominated Tammy Trout, and “In Christ Alone” with vocals by solo artists Kaneisha “NeeCee” Trott and Aaron Camper, Bratten fused multi-talented artists with diverse genres of music to express one corporate message – Christ is the same today, yesterday, and forever more!

For the last ten years, Bratten has continued to thrive in the music industry and built a notable reputation for his unique sound, stage presence, and a personality just as creative as the musical masterpieces he coins. He has graced many stages in the music industry, having the opportunity to play with Musiq Soul Child, Tye Tribbett, Jill Scott, Mario Barret, Fantasia, Jaguar Wright, Flo Rida, Martha Munizzi, Youthful Praise, Norman Hutchins, Bruce Parham and currently, Drake. He has also displayed his talents in live television performances including “The David Letterman Show” with Chamillionaire, “The American Music Awards” with Drake, and Dick Clark’s “Rockin’ New Year’s Eve” with Flo Rida. His discography includes the work of J. Cole “Born Sinner,” Tasha Cobbs “Grace,” Tye Tribbett “Fresh,” Angela Johnson’s “It’s Personal,” and Musiq Soulchild’s “A Philly Christmas.” Bratten is also honing his skills as a producer for the debut project of NeeCee Trott set to release later in 2014. “Hymns My Way” is available for sale on iTunes, Amazon, and CD Baby.
