J.Smo From the opening Whiskey Song to the closing Insomnia, Wash Me is the perfect addition to any rockers music collection. Jay’s song crafting skills, his musicianship and his years of experience set him apart from the average independent musician and guarantees a much needed consistency that never disappoints. Favorite track: I am Alive.

Malika Dahl Jay Regan’s songs are a combination of old school and modern rock and, apart from the “Whiskey Song”, which didn’t provide any good lyrics and was rather disappointing, are worth listening to. Considering as well, that Jay Regan plays all the parts in his project himself we must appreciate the effort that went into his CD.
For rock lovers this CD will be a great addition to their CD shelves. To all the other music lovers: Lean back and enjoy this music from colliding times. Favorite track: Right Between the Eyes.

If you dig on gold in this lifetime Everything you do is for the one and if your wings are made of wax and feathers you better not fly to close to the sun Hand grenades, war machine, trading lives for gasoline who the heck are we fighting for It's the March of the Romans Everything is run by corporations Politicians bow down to their needs Open up your eyes, look around you You and I the only ones that bleed World War One, World War Two, Vietnam, 911 Who the heck are we fighting for It's the March of the Romans and I don't know what to think I don't know how to react I know one thing for certain the other side is sure to attack.

Can't Let Go 04:12
Hold my hand Understand Walk with me Kiss Goodnight Hold me close Never let me go breathe for me, baby and I've seen those kinds of movies and I've seen those kinds of girls and I've walked through the ages in my heart, and in my soul, and in my stars I can't let go, I can't let go, I can't let go In their lives, in their little feeble minds Pretty people whisking like they've got someplace to go Paquitta's touch is all I need to make me feel alive Add to that my loving son, how could I complain and I've seen those kinds of movies and I've seen those kinds of girls and I've walked through the ages in my heart, and in my soul, and in my stars I can't let go . . . ohhhhhh Don't ever leave I'd miss your tender touch You're long dark hair falls around me Like a loving veil and in the morning when the sun is shining slowly drifting across your face in the summertime and I've seen those kinds of movies and I've seen those kinds of girls and I've walked through the ages in my heart, and in my soul, and in my stars I can't let go, I can't let go, I can't let go

Grow 03:33
Listen to me and I'll tell you a story of a tell-tale heart that never bleds you're gonna find out what it’s like, this time, this time Been too long with so much confusion but you stood by me to the bitter end gonna find out what it means to be alive, to be alive Why can't you see what you mean to me yet I know, yes I know Loves the only thing that will ever grow Between the lines and in the spaces of a weathered heart that's never read I want to change the ending of a different story One that tells about of the glory of the better life that's come to me by the joining that has made us three gonna find out what it means to be strong, to be strong Can't see what you mean to me yet I know yes I know Loves the only thing that will ever grow I can’t breathe, like you can breathe yet I know, yes I know Loves the only thing that will ever grow Love with me is complicated but it's never leaves and it never wanes I know it must feel strange this time I know sometimes you must dig deeper to uncover how I really feel --pause-- I just want you to know I need you every day SOLO Can't you see what you mean to me yet I know yes I know Loves the only thing that will ever grow I can’t breathe, like you can breathe yet I know, yes I know Loves the only thing that will ever grow

Dad 03:24
High on a hillside, watching over me I see the sun light in your eyes You were always quiet but your strength burned through I hope that we can be the same Dad, don't be mad, if we say we love you If we'll never be the same without you, Dad don't be sad, if we say we need you It's not a weakness when you tell someone you care Walk beside the ocean, calm a troubled sea, soaring high above the sands you never sought attention, though the truth be told there's an empty space within our heart Dad, don't be mad, if we say we love you If we'll never be the same without you, Dad don't be sad, if we say we need you It's not a weakness when you tell someone you care You worked so hard day and night that's how we know how much you cared you gave the world yourself and tought us how to live you know we won't be scared, alive inside us Dad Dad, don't be mad, if we say we love you If we'll never be the same without you, Dad don't be sad, if we say we need you It's not a weakness when you tell someone you care Dad, don't be mad, if we say we love you If we'll never be the same without you, Dad don't be sad, if we say we need you It's not a weakness when you tell someone you care

I am Alive 04:09
Once there was a little child, trapped inside a smile Tried it’s best to integrate if only for a while Everything to satisfy the people in their lives Found that can be difficult when there’s less sand in the top Freedom comes to countless few who sacrifice their lives Easier to ride the wave than crashed upon the shore Empty vases, void of water, dried buds gathered dust Where there was a shiny coat, now’s turn into rust I am, I am I am alive I have, I have, I have not died I’ve done my best to satisfy the loved ones in my life I am, I am I am alive Pale new skin, velvet like, covered now in sores Felt the danger, lived and breathed, and I know the score Life is not your own, they say, maybe in a dream That lingers from the misty depths that will make you scream There’s a time I wanted to listen everyday Tried to find out why you all, walked the other way I thought it was my aura but I know that’s not true There are people who love me, just like people do I am, I am I am alive I have, I have, I have not died I’ve done my best to satisfy the losers in my life I am, I am I am alive Now I see the mystery, unraveled for you all Tried to catch it in my arms, breathed it in my soul But the only difference is I opened up my mind I began, to accept the way it is . . . and who am I to question?

There was a man who thought that he can Listen through walls and understand All that was made from beginning to end Turns out that he is nothing at all There was a child living in sin so sayeth the ones who consider themselves higher than you oh what a shame turns out that they are nothing at all I know there are times when you feel you are lost I know there are times when your family's in peril I know there are times when you knell down to pray Yes I know, there's no place to turn There is a book, one scribed by man Who bends the rules that govern our lives a book that can kill and render us null Turns out that it is nothing at all I know there are times when you feel you are lost I know there are times when your family's in peril I know there are times when you knell down to pray Yes I know, there's no place to turn No place to turn No place to turn No place to turn No place to turn You're on your own . . .

Right Between the Eyes When I awoke, in the hospital I couldn't control myself, what was going on am I in a dream, I want to scream I could not believe how the earth has turned and all I want to do is to save my family Right Between the eyes in the brain is where it has to be right between the eyes in the brain, if you want to survive Out on the road Moving car to car you meet some strange things all along the way some are walking dead, some still alive the only difference is it's harder to be sure and all I want to do is to find my family Right Between the eyes in the brain is where it has to be right between the eyes in the brain, if you want to survive

Whiskey Song 03:16
I got whiskey on my mind, think about whiskey all the time If I don't get my whiskey, I'm gonna get frisky I got whiskey on my mind I got smoking on my mind, think about smoking all the time if i don't get my smoke on, gonna get something to poke on I got smoking on my mind I got to find out what I gotta do, so I don't have to formulate a sentence or two Want to stay messed up all of the day so if she comes back she wont come back to stay Hey Hey, Hey Hey I got red wine on my mind, think about red wine all the time if i don't get my red wine, it's gonna be party time I got red wine on my mind I got to find out what I gotta do, so I don't have to formulate a sentence or two Want to stay messed up all of the day so if she comes back she wont come back to stay Hey Hey, Hey Hey Repeat 1st Verse I got whiskey on my mind, think about whiskey all the time If I don't get my whiskey, I'm gonna get frisky I got whiskey on my mind I got smoking on my mind I got red wine on my mind

Lovely Day 03:23
Here I am again trying to save myself, here I am in unconsciously aware It's another lovely day Open up my eyes, why can't I breath? The strangest feeling has washed all over me It's another lovely day Another time, another place,I leave this world full of my disgrace This is my badge, impossible, my only wish is to clarify my soul Out on the road, for a thousand years, just one more night will quantify my fears It's another lovely day Another time, another place, I leave this world full of my disgrace This is my badge, impossible, my only wish is to clarify my soul I dig this hole, on hands and knees, bleeding fingers eager to receive It's another lovely day Another time, another place, I leave this world full of my disgrace This is my badge, impossible, my only wish is to clarify my soul This is the end, my awaited friend It is ironic "cause there is no other side It's another lovely day It's another lovely day It's another lovely day

The little fish gets eaten by a big fish the big fish gets eaten by a bigger fish the bigger fish gets eaten by the biggest fish and the biggest fish gets caught up in the line I don't want to be a carrot, dangling in front of the horse and I don't want to be a marionette, made to do a dance by force I don't wanna be a soldier, marching around in the sun and I don't want to hurt another man, I wish that they would melt my gun The little fish gets eaten by a big fish the big fish gets eaten by a bigger fish the bigger fish gets eaten by the biggest fish and the biggest fish gets caught up in the line Take your hands out of my pockets, cause I buried my cash in a box I Put it on an island near the deep blue sea, guarded by a crazy lonely fox Follow the leader in a corn maze, lost until we can be found Grabbed the legs of a soaring bird and thank him as he dropped me on the ground The little fish gets eaten by a big fish the big fish gets eaten by a bigger fish the bigger fish gets eaten by the biggest fish and the biggest fish gets caught up in the line Now I am one to trust and believe, I like to give a second chance but I don't like the way that you behave you're gonna have to make me smile
11.
If it never stops, who are we to blame You and I alone thinking, talking of yesterday’s Been around the world, sitting with the shame Like a single tile that teeters falls the other way We've been wronged They prey upon, ones perceived as weak but they're bright and special, shooting stars across the night Built upon the fears, handing out the tears Ones they've saved up trapped inside, built over years You’ve been wronged We try to raise our children to love and be loved No one knows where some have failed Multiply the senseless data in their minds Forever changed, Forever Lost, That's the crime Sometimes they’re not to blame, It’s like the rain When the storm is over give it time it comes again Is it DNA? Or is it passed down? Parent to child, child to children, it worms its way, into our lives We try to raise our children to love and be loved No one knows where some have failed Multiply the senseless data in their minds Forever changed, Forever Lost, That's the crime
12.
I know, I know you got that look it your eyes I know, I know that deathly stare You took a trip down to the chemist But boy that cupboard is bare and I know when you look at the sea you're just killing some time yes I know how hard it can be You had it all, left what you loved in this life You had it all the palm of your hand all of the things, people have CHERISHED evaporate into air and I know when you look in the sky it comes crashing down yes I know how hard it can be We come from a place, a moment out of time You're such a disgrace living on somebody's dime When, you look back, on the nightmares you've consieved Will you feel the same today 'cause you're living on borrowed time you're bound to pay back . . . REPEAT FOR CHORUS and I know on your climb to the top the summits just out of reach yes I know how hard it can be and I know when you make a score you're just chasing your tail yes I know how hard it can be how hard it can be how hard it can be

Faces 04:45
We've arrived, half alive, in this back-lit fantasy In the air, without a care, or floating on a restless sea We don't care, if you stare, just don't look down on me We don't mind, just be kind, there’s another side of me I can't fight it anywhere oh, anyway it shows, see it in the faces I can't fight it anywhere oh, anyway it shows Fight the wars, break the walls, slowly turning pages burned Losing control, without a toll, it's not. - what it's meant to be We don't care, it's in the air, don't turn the other cheek I don't buy it, can't confine it, restlessly defined I can't find it anywhere oh, anyway it shows, see it in the faces I can't find it anywhere oh, anyway it shows Naaa Naaaa I don't mind, cause if you want to know, I'll be just fine Don't cry, don't cry, don't cry for me Don't try, don't try, don't try for me I don't care, if you dare, rescue me this time All alone, by the phone, waiting there for me I can't find it anywhere oh, anyway it shows, see it in the faces I can't find it anywhere oh, anyway it shows Don't cry, don't try, don't bow to me.

I was born, in a shell, in a test tube blinded by the science & technology I’m a boy, I’m a man, as long I live, you know I’ll never really understand Why I’m angry, enlightened, I’m crazy, inviting, alone and tattooed with markings that age sustains I’m lightning, canned violence, I’m drinking and too frightened and too lazy to ever stomp it down Yeah, Yeah, Yeah Take what they want Do as they please Follow the leader Spread the disease If you let them they will take you down on the road to oblivion I was once, just like you, when time moved on that’s when I started to realize Half life, on a shelf, homogenized, for people who really don’t give a damn You’re under, the controllers, been promised, been broken Been lied to, happy to be breathing the air they made We need to stand up, break down, punish and take down The muscle that only drags us down Yeah, Yeah, Yeah Take what they want Do as they please Follow the leader Spread the disease If you let them they will take you down We’re on the road to oblivion Solo Silence, can’t be bought, at least the silence muted by technology In the night, all seems good, between the hours of something like 3 to 5 We’re bloated, fat cats, feeding, in white caps, jaded Immune to the violence and hypocrisy Got - to – awaken, and be shaken, your bright eyes See clearly, stop texting, it only stomps you down Yeah, Yeah, Yeah Take what they want Do as they please Follow the leader Spread the disease If you let them they will take you down We’re on the road to oblivion

Insomnia 05:51
At night, when the lights fade low and the doors close, and there's no one home When you're left within your mind, and all of your thoughts aren't kind There's no place to go, to occupy some time It's easier said then done Give it a try sometimes As one falls it continues down the line Promise me you won't tell and I'll never bring it up again I can see it in your eyes You'd rather hear me lie Sleep, Fall asleep Dream, a happy dream 20 years maybe more, I have been this way I got to hold on, another 20 or more to go It's not all that bad, if I don't cross that line but if I do, I'd rather be you Fight or flight, give me something I can get my hands on As one slides, another one slides on top Take a drink of cool water, whatever can break this spell It won't allow me, to come back again Sleep, Fall asleep Dream, a happy dream

about

My second CD release, a bit more heavier than the other CD but still a mix of different genres. R&B, Rock, Modern Rock, Funk, Country and a bit more . . . It's a chaotic mix of songs running around in my brain.

REVIEW: Huffing Post

Suffice to say that they are, for the most part, very good. As stated previously, Jay’s style is a mishmash of influences that he melds together with a sure hand. The melodies are strong and the musicianship on display is excellent. Wash Me is a first-rate album. Jay Regan has mucho talent as a singer/songwriter. Wash Me is original and creative.

about

Jay Regan Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Hi, I am Jay Regan, Singer songwriter from Philadelphia. Many will find my multi-genre music confusing. The music is mainly rock based but I like to write in many different styles because I am inspired by different types of music. I have so-far released 2 albums and am currently working on number 3. I have not had much success selling my music but have had some really nice comments on the songs! ... more
