Jay Albright was born at a very early age in the woods of Northwest
Missouri. After many hardships he made it all the way to a tiny town called
Stewartsville. Jay has always been around the outdoors and enjoys camping,
fishing, and hunting.
By age 13, Jay had finally found his passion--music with an emphasis
in drumming. After years of consistent practice and many blisters later,
he began playing with a band called STAMPYD. This 3 piece band was
heavy into Rock -n- Roll. The band itself was influenced by such groups
as Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Dokken, Motley Crue, and many other great
Once STAMPYD finally got into the playing circuit, many opportunities
began to arise. They recorded a six song EP that sold locally and did very
well for this area. Later the band had the opportunity to record 2 songs
on a CD compilation that got lots of publicity in the Kansas City area.
Since then, Jay has attended M.W.S.C. and received a Bachelor of Science
in Education and is currently the band director in Cameron, Missouri.
When he has time, Jay privately teaches his craft to young musicians. This
dedication to our youth is consistant with Jay's consuming drive to pass
down to the next generation his love for the drums.
The PIGFARMER band squealed at the opportunity to have Jay as
their drummer and he has proven himself to be a real asset to this band.
His creativity knows no bounds and his energy level equals his creativity.
Jay married his wife, Hope, 6 years ago and loves spending
what time he can with her and their 6 year old son, Nikolas.
Music is Jay's life and not a day goes by that a tune or some crazy rhythm
isn't running through his mind. With dreams of making a substantial impact
in the music world some day, this back-woods country boy will just keep
on a-working and a-playin' until the Great Lord above calls him back home.
