Nashville Musician Jay Pounders Set To Launch Residency At Belcourt Taps

Nashville's Jay Pounders is set to put his vast musical experience on display when he begins a special "7@7" monthly residency at Belcourt Taps. The one-time Geffen Records recording artist will kick off a monthly show at Belcourt Taps in Nashville starting on his birthday - March 7, 2018 at 7 p.m. sharp.

Pounders is the founder and frontman of the critically acclaimed band Crossfire Choir who released three albums in the late 80's and early 90's. Their brand of quirky new wave bolstered with elements of punk and funk drew the attention of many of the music industry's luminaries back in the day.

Crossfire Choir quickly became known for their quirky pop songs and punk-rock attitude and they soon caught the eye of Hilly Kristal, the late owner of the already legendary CBGBs in lower Manhattan. Hilly began managing the group and began having the guys open for all the big-name and up-and-coming acts that played CBGSs, especially those that he knew would draw industry folks.

Signing one of the largest contracts ever offered to an unknown band, Geffen Records flew the band to London to record their first album with producer, Steve Lillywhite, known for his chart topping run with superstars like Peter Gabriel, U2 and XTC.

The band recorded its second album in Seattle with producer, Ed Stasium. Known for producing The Ramones and Living Color, he had just finished producing The Smithereens.

The group's final record, "Dominique" was released on CBGB Records.

After the band's demise, Pounders moved to L.A. before returning to his native Tennessee making music all along the way, because as he says, "I just can't quit."

"If I were religious person, I'd say that my whole life was planned in order that I could show the world the power of perseverance and that life doesn't end with one's youth," Pounders pondered. "The only advice I would offer young musicians is to not be too easily puffed up by success or discouraged by failure and to remember its all about the music. That's the thing."

Jay offered these lyrics from his recent recording: "Hang On To Me Friend"

"I never believed in anything
Except for the chance a new day brings
to put it down and start again
Hang on to me Friend."

Jay Pounders will begin a residency at Belcourt Taps starting on his (and coincidentally Townes Van Zandt's) birthday, March 7. He'll be performing there on the 7th of each month at 7 PM.

Come see what all the fuss was about.
