Jay Drapes

On Jay’s first day of college, they got into an argument with the dean of the political science program over constitutional theory. They promptly dropped the major and decided that music was the only way to impact real social change. Now, nine years later, Jay has become a manager, promoter, and teacher, as well as a self-taught nationally performing musician with their brain child, Snaps for Sinners. Whether with bass, guitar, accordion, trumpet, or the simple power of words, Jay’s passion and drive is for calling people in, rather than calling them out, and they use the co-creation of music on their travels as a means to bridge our country’s social and political divides.
