Jay Shaner - Talk Me to Sleep "Video of the Day" review by Alex Cosper on December 9, 2012

Jay Shaner performs his original song "Talk Me to Sleep" on acoustic guitar in this video recorded on Dec. 5, 2012 in which we did a series of interviews at his home recording studio. Jay describes this ballad as a "love song from the grave" and is a dedication from his grandfather to his grandmother. It was the first track on his second album called Best Laid Plans, which is available on iTunes. Here is a sample of some of the lyrics: "Ashes in the air / they turn to oxygen / the cynders blown in the breeze / the feeling of my love / talk me to sleep again tonight, my dear." The song has bluesy folk feel. Jay did a lot of the instrumentation on the album himself, but also worked with several fellow musicians. He regularly plays at the Fox and Goose Restaurant in Downtown Sacramento at least once per month. Check out more of Jay Shaner's music on
