JOHNSON, JAY (1937-1986)

Cincinnati-area singer and guitar player Jay Johnson performed country, bluegrass, and gospel music. He recorded with the Sandy Valley Boys on Briar, on Bobby Grove’s Oak label, on Big 6, and two great bluegrass singles in the 1960s backed by Earl Taylor and the Stoney Mountain Boys–one on Cincinnati’s Rocket label and the other on Nashville, a subsidiary of Starday.
