Jay Johnson

Jay Johnson is an award-winning musician and songwriter who moved to London before his teenage years and began making music from a young age. Jay’s naturally curious mind led him to start learning the cello, he then taught himself how to play guitar. Jay started listening to artists such as Bob Dylan, Paolo Nutini, and Ben Howard from his early teens and as a result their influences can often be heard in his original work.

Jay eventually began writing his own songs and busking on the streets of London. A year later he began performing at pubs, venues and festivals. After the experience of playing to live crowds, he abandoned his plans of becoming a doctor and decided to become a full-time musician.

Jay is a resident artist at the world-famous Roundhouse venue in London and is currently working on his debut EP.

About Shortwave Cafe

Shortwave Café is an art and events venue in Bermondsey’s busiest business complex where you can relax with colleagues over coffee and cake, catch up with friends for drinks after work, or check out the current art exhibition. The café is spacious and bright, with natural light provided by the same skylights that allowed the workers in the old Peek Frean’s factory to produce the Bourbons, Garibaldis, Custard Creams and Twiglets, whose aromas wafted out into the surrounding streets and homes. Join for coffee and cake, cocktails, wines or cold beers from local brewers while you lounge in comfortable chairs, or take in the latest art show.

Free WiFi is available. Free parking after 6.30pm and all day on Saturday. Shortwave Cafe is closed on Sundays  @ShortwaveCafe  ShortwaveCafe
