Jay Smith has been playing music since he was 3 years old. Today he's well known among musicians in Bakersfield. He's a regular on keyboards with Bakersfield's own Mento Buru, but his own band, the Jay Smith Group, is his priority. The band recently released two new albums. Smith sat down with the Californian to talk about his music career and his plans for the future.
