It was a strange week in America for sure and so it feels a bit odd to be promoting a tour and a record. If nothing else, I hope that this week’s events remind all to hold our loved ones a little closer and to take every opportunity that life gives us to show kindness to others.
Alas, this is show business…and in times like these, making music seems more important than ever…a conduit of human connection and a catalyst for healing and hope.
As many of you already know, the new album, ‘Letters from the Lost’ is slated for release on Tuesday May 14th. Making this album was a revelatory experience and big step in a new creative direction for me, so I am dizzy with excitement about sharing it with you. I hope that you will help spread the word about the release as I am putting this one out all by myself and leaning on you… the best ‘record label’, fans and support system a guy could ever hope to have.
EAST COAST HEADLINE SHOWS - NOW ON SALE - VIENNA (DC), PHILLY, NYC, MAINE, BOSTON:

Josh Day will be playing drums and singing and special guest (and opening act) Eliza Moore (whose debut EP I produced this winter) will be sitting in on fiddle. There will be electric guitar, harmony, drums and in other words, the ‘rock’ that I have been sorely missing in my solo shows.
Boston - we especially look forward to seeing you and sharing a big musical hug with you. Your bravery and resilience has been a true inspiration this week.

I am happy to announce that my (lucky) seventh full length studio album, ‘Letters from the Lost’ will be set free unto the world on Tuesday, May 14th 2013. What began as a creative exercise in being open to possibility and exploring new sonic directions in my home studio, grew into what I believe is the most poignant and honest musical endeavor I have ever been a part of. I hope that you will listen and find the same thing to be true.
This album was made possible by the generous cooperation of listeners like you. For this, I am incredibly grateful. ‘Letters from the Lost’ will be an entirely independent release and so, more than ever, I am reliant upon you to help spread the good word. Two songs from the album; ‘Sailor’ (through Paste Magazine’s premier) and ‘Wander’ (via my homespun, iPhone generated Youtube video) are now available for your perusal. If you like what you hear, tell you neighbors and loved ones.
‘Sailor’ at Paste.com
‘Wander’ on youtube
With a new album, comes a new tour. At the end of April, I will be hopping in the van with the mighty, Ivan & Alyosha as we take to the plains and mountains of Western Canada and Washington state. I had the privilege of catching one of their sets at SXSW, where they had about 300 people huddled together in a sweltering outdoor tent. Despite the close quarters and intense heat, nobody was complaining. In fact, nearly every face in that crowd was grinning ear to ear. Suffice to say, I am very much looking forward to these 8 shows:
April 30 - Winnipeg, Canada - Pyramid Cafe
May 02 - Saskatoon, Canada - Amigos
May 03 - Edmonton, Canada - Pawn Shop

Advance praise for ‘Letters from the Lost’:
“Letters from the Lost absolutely sounds like a keeper. Check out Jay Nash live. You might be blown away.” - No Depression
“Jay Nash has a voice that vibrates with the power of commitment. That is the guarantee that he gives away with each song. Jay is a seeker, and the lessons he learns, the questions he asks of himself and others, can be found in his music. The tracks on Letters from the Lost present themselves with music that cradles Jay’s words. The soft acoustics are content to support the voice, to let the words stand as testament to the power of the singer/songwriter to elicit change through his sweetly sung dialogue.” - Alternate Root TV
“Often noted for his unique blend of Americana, alternative, folk and rock influences, “Sailor” captures Nash’s sound in a manner that offers a comprehensive glimpse into the niche Nash has managed to craft for himself over the years. Acoustic guitars, a driving beat and Nash’s honest vocal delivery make up this solid track.” - Paste
“Sailor captures (Nash’s new found creative) freedom brilliantly; it’s a song filled with hope and optimism. Beginning as a loose alt-country number it grows in stature to a chest-beating and defiant chorus. Layers of guitar do battle for attention and end up in perfect harmony.” - The Sound of Confusion
“Wander, a brooding tale about eternal searching which evokes a Bruce Springsteen-like vibe thanks to Nash’s raw vocals and steady groove. It’s the type of song you could lose your consciousness in — especially if you’re listening to it while driving alone on a dark highway. Guilty.” - The Round Table
“Letters from the Lost…reflects a change in the air and a time for stepping out. Behind Nash’s distinct vocals are a far more layered soul. And in support: mandolin, baritone electric guitar and ethereal noise.” - RSL Blog
Winter is winding down and I am gearing up for the year ahead which will bring the launch of the new album later this Spring and plenty of tour dates all over the US and Europe.
I’ve been spending a great deal of time getting to know the new songs (AKA: something that I haven’t done in years…PRACTICING!) and the live show is really coming together. I couldn’t be more excited about the prospect of hitting the road with a stack of new songs. This week I’m rehearsing in Burlington, Vermont, filming a performance for Alternate Root TV in Boston, rehearsing for SXSW in Nashville and then heading to Austin at the end of the week.
AUSTIN, TX AND SXSW:
If you’re headed to the great gathering or a local of the Longhorn capital, I hope that you can join me for one of these performances. Both will feature Josh Day on drumkit, premiering many of the new songs from the forthcoming album, ‘Letters from the Lost’.

Holy moly. It’s winter. It’s snowing. The holiday season is upon us. My head is already spinning.
Actually, my head is probably spinning as a result of the tour schedule this fall, which has had me travel approximately 45,000 miles in the last two months. It has been an incredible ride. Thank you guys for making it so.
If you’re new to the list, thank you for signing up. If you’re not new, thank you for staying on!

Both are available now in very limited quantities. Check out the online store, here
I realize that I have already used the word ‘thank’ four times in this email. I mean it though. I try to write songs and make records that I believe are true. I put my all into creating them and then singing them every night on the road. It doesn’t always leave time for much else. You guys have done the rest, so I feel incredibly fortunate to have you. So I will say it again. Thank you….for listening, for showing up, for spreading the word and for being supportive. You’re pretty awesome.
If you’re in Texas, I look forward to seeing you this week. If not, then someday soon.
It’s a crazy time in this country today. I’m sure that time is short for you as it for me, so I’ll keep this tight and to the point.
I hit the road tomorrow with fellow troubadour, Graham Colton for four shows in the Midwest. After that, it’s onward to Europe for six shows in Germany and Holland with Ari Hest and an additional four shows in Holland on my own. I’ll take a week off for turkey, gratitude and family time, then I will finish off my 2012 tour schedule in Texas with Graham Colton.

Also - my fellow Americans, I know you know this. But, please, please, please VOTE. Now would probably be a good time to double check to be sure that you know where your polling place is. Voting is one of the great privileges and responsibilities of being an American…and as Bob Schieffer’s mom said - ‘Go vote - it will make you feel big and strong’.
Thanks for listening. You are the best.

Yesterday, I surfed at Topanga Canyon in North Los Angeles for the third day in a row. When I lived in Los Angeles, this place was a sanctuary for me. Not only is it a near perfect point break in a stunning physical setting, I’ve always found something really special about the equality of surfers in the lineup out in the water. You might find a dude who lives out of his RV hanging out and chatting it up with a billionaire or a movie star. In the social landscape of southern california, this is a setting with almost no equal.
On Friday, I got in the water at about 5pm. Much to my chagrin, i realized upon arrival at the beach, that I had forgotten my wetsuit. I was determined to surf, no matter how chilly. So, I stormed off into the water opting to take my 9 foot longboard. I figured that I could keep more of my body out of the water with the bigger board.
The conditions were near perfect - waist to chest-high waves, peeling perfectly off the point. The water wasn’t nearly as cold as I expected either. My feet didn’t even get numb. I had about 75 minutes to spend in the water and in that time, I caught probably fifteen perfect waves. It was heavenly.
The next day, I returned to Topanga, mid-morning with my wife. The atmosphere in the water was similar. It was a saturday, so there were a fair amount of people out there. There were a lot of ‘party waves’, where three or four people share the face of a bigger set wave. Everybody was having a good time. I spent about half the day on my 7’10” fun board and half of the day on my 9’ long board. Towards the end of the day, I found myself in the right place, at the right time and caught a big rogue wave which turned out to be one of the best waves that i have ridden in five years.
On Sunday, we were a little pressed for time, but we found ourselves in the neighborhood. I got in the water with about 30 minutes to spare. Once I had finished paddling out to the main take-off point for the break, I heard a guy, probably in his early fifties…a salty character who had probably been surfing Topanga for 30 years say, ‘oh…this guy doesn’t get it’. I wasn’t sure if he was talking about me and I really didn’t care one way or another. In the water, I am assertive about yielding right of way as well as staking claim to waves that are rightfully mine.
As is normal, there was a bit of waiting time out there before the first set rolled in. I greeted some of the familiar faces in the lineup and gave a nod to ‘Salty’ (the guy who made the ‘doesn’t get it’ comment’). He had asked me a few minutes earlier on the shore for some wax at which time, I pointed him in the direction of another surfer who was carrying some.
Then a set started rolling in. I let the first two waves go to some guys who had been out there waiting longer than I had. When the third wave came in, the peak was headed directly for me. ‘Salty’ was on the inside, and from my estimation, appeared to be too far in to take off and make the section without the wave closing on him. Still, he paddled for the wave in my direction. As I stood up, I heard him grunting and taking off at the same time. I immediately made a frontside turn to the lip of the wave and motioned to ‘Salty’ (who, this point had the right of way on the wave) to pass on by and enjoy the wave.
As ‘Salty’ approached on the face of the wave, he yelled ‘GET THE FUCK OFF!!’
So much for the camaraderie and equality that I mentioned earlier.
I paddled back out to the take off point and waited.
‘Salty’ paddled back out the lineup and stopped…about 10 feet away from me. I don’t think that i had the friendliest look on my face. I can’t remember the last time that somebody spoke to me that way. I was pissed.
He glared back and after a few seconds, began spitting words: ‘don’t fucking paddle on me! This is not a long board spot! Summer’s over! I’m fucking sick of you fuckers.’
I replied, ‘Dude - it’s a Sunday and we are in Los Angeles. I yielded the wave to you and this is not a long board’.
He kept yelling. I stopped listening. A couple of his friends paddled up and mustered something of an apology to me…’don’t worry about it. You were right. He gets grumpy.’.
I was able to catch a couple of great waves before getting out of the water, but the whole exchange with ‘Salty’ really unsettled me.
The younger, more hot-headed version of me would have punched ‘Salty’ in the face. Of course, a part of me still wanted to retaliate. I was so stunned by the unprecedented level of douche-baggery that this guy presented to me, that I said very little in reply. It just was not worth it.
I wish that I had said the following however..or at least, that I could transmit this message to his brain. I think it applies to anyone who makes the choice to avoid showing basic respect to other human beings:
Someday, and hopefully someday relatively soon, you are going have the sobering realization that nobody likes you, ‘Salty’. Nobody cares about you, because - you are a raging asshole. You might have gotten the wave, but unless you change your ways, you are going to die painfully alone.
I’m guessing that a series of bad decisions led ‘Salty’ to become a dispirited and unhappy person, but being unkind or disrespectful to another person. Furthermore, you might just disrespect the wrong person and find yourself choking on your own teeth.
Seek harmony. Everyone on this planet has their own struggle. Open the door for the person walking up to the restaurant behind you. Use your turn signal. Yield. Merge. Just don’t be a dick.
The moral of the story is this - be kind.
see you out there.

Post with 7 notes
I remember when I was kid, being dumbfounded, paralyzed and terrified all at once, when the notion of infinity first dawned on me. I think that I was eleven years old and in the sixth grade at Enders Road Elementary School. It was then, that the expanse of the Universe and the endless stream of time first dwarfed my perception of my own reality and it was then, for the very first time that I felt afraid and alone.
This pre-pubescent, existential crisis was thankfully subverted by a fortunate discovery.
Sure, I had been listening to bands like Def Leppard, Quiet Riot and Kiss on an expandable suitcase-record player since I was seven, which was all well and good. But, it was the sound of the Grateful Dead, emanating from my Sanyo boombox, as I laid in my bunk bed, that reconnected me to the world, humanity and I dare say, the universe. There was a language of truth that I had never heard before in Jerry Garcia’s fiery playing (circa the 1971, ‘Skull and Roses’ release), that intertwined in conversation, chorus and harmony with Bob Weir’s, glassy, rhythmic punctuations. The entire band was communicating with each other and it’s audience in way that I could barely comprehend. Suddenly, I was no longer alone.
Shortly thereafter, I flipped that 90 minute Maxell tape over and discovered a resonance of similar amplitude in the songs and voice of Cat Stevens. Of course, his music was of a completely different shade, but the connection was just as strong. It was clear to me, at that moment, in my eleven year old mind, that Cat had pondered the same questions and fears that I had in my early existentialism. Again I realized, I was not alone.
What followed between then and now, was probably not all that different than the experience that many American songwriters have had growing up. My uncle gave me a guitar, I became obsessed with the recordings of the Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, Cat Stevens and the like, and I began to figure out how to play some songs. Slowly (though not particularly surely) I would also begin to find my voice as a singer, a player and a writer. Eventually, I found my way to New York City, then on to Los Angeles and onto stages all across the land.
All of that stuff hardly seems as important though, as that discovery that I made when I was just a kid. It wasn’t necessarily The Dead, Jerry or Cat Stevens, specifically…it really could have been anyone, I think. Sam Cooke, Michael Jackson, Charlie Parker…Frank Sinatra. What I discovered, was the connective power of music. Every once in a while, throughout my life, I will forget and when I do, I suppose that I let my perception of the world around me fade in to black and white. Then, I will hear a voice, or a song…or find myself onstage with a particularly open and enthusiastic audience, or sharing a harmony with a friend…and BOOM! Everything explodes back into technicolor.
So - that is what I do. I seek that connection. I search for that sound. I suspect that the universe has some particular resonant frequencies and I believe that is truth that we are all looking for. Just as it exists in the physical world, I think that we can find that resonance in melody, harmony, rhythm and poetry. I was lucky enough to discover it very early on in my life - and so, I take that as a hint from the universe that I should encourage and enable others to make similar discoveries.
Thanks for taking the time to read this and here’s hoping you can find it too.
July isn’t over and it has already been a long, hot summer. I hope that this finds you close to a body of water or at the very least, unafraid to sit in a kiddie pool in your front lawn.
I want to thank all of you that have made it out to a show recently or that have recently joined the mailing list. In the coming months, I’ll be announcing some exclusive music giveaways.
I’m very excited to announce two very special California shows with my soul sister, Garrison Starr. Both shows will likely sell out, so grab your tickets now:
Wednesday - 8.22 - 8:30 pm - Room 5 - Los Angeles, CA - TICKETS
Saturday - 8.25 - 7pm - Zoey’s Cafe - Ventura, CA - TICKETS
THE NEW ALBUM - PROGRESS!
The new album is nearing completion and I couldn’t be happier about it. It’s different than any record that I have ever made before and at the same time, it’s the natural evolution of of everything I’ve ever done.
About a month ago, I announced my second ‘digital yardsale’, an offering of exclusive packaged premiums to help fund the production and release of this album. Up for grabs, are early exclusive access to music from the new album, VIP concert tickets, house concerts, ipods packed with my entire catalogue and even the chance to co-write a song together. (and a whole lot more)
The response so far has been nothing short of incredible and I can say with certainty that this album will be seeing the light of day sometime in early 2013. So, I cannot thank you enough. I’ve said it before, I will say it again…you guys are the best. Thank you.
See you out there.
