“If I died tomorrow, I would want people to say, ‘He was a happy, honest man who sought excellence as a musician. As a parent and a husband he was a blessing to his family and his life pleased the Lord.’ I feel privileged to be a working musician in L.A. with some of the greatest musicians and guitarists on the planet. I hope to always continue to grow as both an artist and a player and be an inspiration to as many people as possible” JL
With a personality as big as his talent, Jay Leach has written the book on guitar, literally, he recently had two guitar books published in the Mel Bay series and the Province of Alberta in Canada ask him to design a guitar curriculum for their students. You will often see him putting the pedal to the metal on pedal steel for American Idol Country artists. Although he is a first call session player, he is also a beloved solo artist as well with seven solo releases.
