Jay Sherman-Godfrey

Gentle, simple songs anchored in clean chords and memorable melodies, Twoscore by Jay Sherman-Godfrey is pop that keeps its eye on the past. There's an immediacy to his songs that recalls the best kind of '60s bubblegum — the steady bridge on "Silver Shoes," the even chug of "West of Here" — Sherman-Godfrey builds warm, memorable tunes from time-tested materials.
