Jay Minkin

Offering a heavy dose of Americana and twang about album reviews, concert previews, local musicians, and singer/songwriters.  I have been writing Minkin’s Music since January of 2007 and found a home here on ND in 2010.  My musical resume includes being the very first and longest corporate underwriter on public radio station WAPS 91.3 The Summit, a board member of the auxiliary group Plugged In at The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, the Northeast Ohio street team captain for Lost Highway Records, and a former board member of Friends of 91.3 The Summit.  I am a Charter Member of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland, a voting member of the Americana Music Association, and a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum in Nashville.   A man who still plays Lp’s on his vintage Technics turntable, you can usually find Jay at area concerts and record stores looking to find new music that stirs his soul.  Find my liner note postings on Facebook and Twitter via Minkin's Music.
