Are Jay was born in 2012 as an acoustic rock-blues cover trio. The band is formed by Ricky Ferranti (acoustic guitars ,mandolin, dobro, banjo, lap steel, vocals), James Cassoni (acoustic guitars, harp, dobro, vocals) and Andrea Zetti (cajon, percussion, background vocals). After several live exhibitions the band decided to write their own songs and so started to write and compose lyrics and music to create the Blue Gloom project CD. The passion for the blues and acoustic instruments (like banjo, mandolins, harps and dobro guitars ) is the main spark that took the band to create original compositions. Every original song is driven by percussions beats like cajon, shaker, tambourin, hand claps and all kind of percussions like rain stick and oriental cymbals.
