Jay Townsend



This is Jay’s first show with The Broadway Chorus. As a kid growing up in Calgary Jay got an early start performing with the Calgary Boys Choir. Though it feels like a lifetime ago, Jay had the chance to perform as the Artful Dodger and sing in the opera “Carmen”. Jay’s musical journey abruptly switched gears when he discovered the electric guitar in middle school and he has played in a variety of bands ever since. Music and creativity have always been a passion of Jay’s. He loves to write songs, screenprint t-shirts, and dabbles in graphic design/concert promotion. Over the past couple years, Jay had the opportunity to harmonize in a couple community choirs which, inevitably, led him back to where things began. Jay is very excited to be on the learning curve to sing and dance again. Outside of the Chorus Jay fronts an alternative rock band, is a social worker, partner, and father to an amazing teenage son. Life is truly a journey, so seize the day.  Enjoy the show!
