The New Year 2020 Special Interview at Inside MusiCast!

"While the rest of Los Angeles is sleeping, Jay Graydon is hard at work. His nocturnal schedule started when he was in high school and has persisted throughout his career, but this magical time of the day has afforded Jay with the creative timetable to write and produce countless gold, platinum and Grammy winning albums and songs. We last had Jay on the show ten years ago when we discussed various highlights of his career, so we're pleased to have him back to update us on several recent topics, including the new JaR album, his 'E' Model Rhodes project, some guitars from his collection that he's parting ways with, and so much more.

Inside MusiCast is pleased to welcome back Jay Graydon.

Hey everyone,
You people probably know Rivera makes a signature amp called the Rake Head. At this point there are enough panels, circuit boards, and key parts to build around 7 more and that will be the last run forever! So if you like my tone, check out my comments at the Hot News page, where you can also find the link to the Rivera website with more data on the amp, plus images and a video in which I explain more about it. - Jay

I just remastered Past to Present - the 70s and as usual, the incredible Fab Filter plugins and some others as well allow so much flexibility! This album is interesting as it is an adventure through my history leading up to the point of before becoming a 1st call studio guitarist up to the point when I made the move to producing and writing. - Jay
