J. Alan Schneider of Jet Black Sunrise is stepping out on his own with the release of his debut solo album titled "Lo & Behold". The folk tinged effort is a welcome change of pace from the music he normally played with his other band, and harnesses all his creative energy into something that is mystifying and downright incendiary as his mellow, amber filled voice permeates strongly throughout his music, and begins a transformation of sorts into a more than confident performer capable of switching musical hats on a dime. I've had the opportunity to see Jay perform several times in concert with Jet Black Sunrise, and it's just awe inspiring to see him step out on his own and do something a little different from his other band and develop his own musical identity that is beginning to take shape right now as we speak. What's even more impressive about his transformation is how confident he is from a outsiders perspective, and how he doesn't flinch at a chance to carve out a name for himself and develop into the performer that he always wanted to be. A welcome debut that is most certainly worthy of a listen.
