Jay Ricochet is a Country Music/Southern Rock artist from Devils Lake, ND. He has been singing and performing for over 30 years. His love for country music stems back to his childhood. He would sit and listen to the original outlaws Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, and Merle Haggard in the cab of his father’s Rig. This introduction to country music solidified his love of the lyrics and truth behind every note played by the artist.
At his current age of 43 years young, when asked why now why country, he responded, ” After 20 years of service in the Military to the greatest Country on Earth, and having put my dreams on hold to serve my Country, this is the perfect time to go out there and make my dreams happen. And Country music has always been a part of me. The truthfulness and realness of the music is what I love about it.”
”I am not a Cowboy, that title is earned not given. It has been earned by many tough men and I would never want to tarnish there legacy by calling myself one.” he adds. “I’m just plain old white trash that loves the heritage and sound of true Country Music.”
Over the years he has performed in multiple bands with varying styles that include Rock, Southern Rock, Heavy Metal and Country. But his heart has always been with the pure uncompromising beauty of Country Music.
In the winter of 2016 he decided it was time to get back to his roots and hit the stage singing songs by the greats such as Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Merle Haggard, and David Alan Coe just to name a few,
He performs 4 one hour sets of some of the best Country and Southern Rock music ever produced.
