GE Homecoming Show a Success

Thanks everyone for making the 2011 Homecoming Dance at Glenbard East High School a special event for me this year! I’m so happy to have made so many new friends, and I hope you’ll choose to join me in the coming months on my musical journey. Thank you, Scott DuBose, for performing with me, and to special guests The Two Hearts (Tim and Rachel). Fantastic work everyone.

Thank you all who signed up on my mailing list or filled out one of those raffle forms. As promised, I’ll be sending along an email to everybody to download my newest record, Fundamental. And, I’m going to give you a little something else, too. Surprise, surprise!

And, of course, thank you to the GE staff who even made the night possible. Thanks Phil and co.


Welcome to the NEW! I’ve been working tirelessly on this puppy for 72 hours (no, not straight) and I hope you like how everything looks. I thought I was due for an update. You’ll probably notice that a *lot* of features and content are no longer on the site. I hope you don’t mind. For those of you who never saw the last version, you’ll probably be very happy with the new layout. Things were just starting to get too cluttered; and, I needed to start to make the transition to HTML5 in order to keep the site compliant with new web standards, blah, blah, blah.

Just a couple things to keep in mind: I’m uploading music from my The Fort, the Fire, the Fairs; Glimmer; and Love Said albums over the next few days. Right now, the only music you’ll find directly on this site is my latest record, Fundamental. Everything else on the site should be fully functional. If you find a problem, please let me know. You can send me an email at: jaymathes [at] jaymathes [dot] com.

The main idea with this redesign is to make sure that I’m fully utilizing some of the outstanding media websites that are out there today, allowing me to easily connect with new people and share new songs quickly. A few of the big ones, of course, are Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and Flickr.

Thanks again for listening, and I hope you enjoy checking out the new site!
