We Are All Born Lucky

by Jay Spears

Jay's third CD of happy, peppy pop serves up his easy-going west-coast sensibility in a burst of warm California sunshine, with juicy harmonies, extra crispy guitars, brassy big-band beats, out-loud lyrics, and a bit of an edge.
Genre: Pop: California Pop

Album Notes
"What can I give you, this time around? A paraphrase of Hemingway, that "We are all born lucky"? I'm living, singing, geetar-playing proof. Let me invite you, honored guest, into our fab yet shaky California paradise, with earthquakes, God or lack thereof, and Meat, for starters; I'll drive you around the City of Angels and tell you how Born Lucky we all are, and about Our Love, star-crossed with death. You say you want a Revolution? Then dawns our Victory Day followed by a well-deserved good night's Sleep With Me. And should we dream of secret gardens with plenty of streaming nectar, is that so bad?"

A British reviewer writes:
"On the whole it is a gently comic vision, but it is always subtly subversive and it occasionally erupts into full-on political activism: guitar-pop with an agenda. Spears is an eccentric and an original, less pretentious than the established gay pop stars, but funnier, more radical and more now. It would be easy to dismiss him as a clown, but on closer inspection his work is quite profound.
Jay Spears is funny, angry, sexy, generous and badly-behaved. He enjoys himself more than a pop star should. He has no interest in being cool or post-modern or evasive. He is a true heir of the '60s, when style and political engagement were more congruent, and pop music had more spiritual energy."
