As to Jay, the performer, God said let there be Pop-Rock and shortly there after Jay Wayne stepped out onto a stage clad in leather pants, cowboy boots, a black shirt and tall pompadour hair style strumming his guitar to either an old Eddie Cochran song or one of his own penned originals designed using the pure pop rock tradition of verse chorus repeat.

Said this about UNONTAINABLE GIRL...
Whether it's Pop-Rock, Pop-Dreampop, or Pop-Alternative, it's everywhere and it's here to stay. We're giving a shout out to pop artists this week due to the massive number of pop songs flooding the Broadjam site. Sitting pretty at number one on both the Pop and Pop-Rock Top 10 Charts is Jay Wayne's song, "Unobtainable Girl". This radio-friendly tune taps into up-to-the-minute musical themes, while bringing an edgier image to the pop scene.
"Cool Elvis Costello vibe, in mild mode. I like the literary vibe. Lyrics are highly intelligent and a kind of social commentary. I like the horns/organ backing toward the end."
