Jory Nash

“As a lover of all things music, my genres of preference tend to be all over the place. I like a wide spectrum, from hard and thrashy to soothing and meaningful and a plethora of things in between. Jory fills a few niches for me along that spectrum… and a Jory Nash show is the high end comfort food of musical experience – you leave it warm, filled with incredible goodness, completely sated and happy. This man is truly the real deal.”
