Jay Mobley is a Boston-based composer and performing artist, originally from the Capital Region of New York. His one-act chamber opera, Anabel, was the recipient of Ethos New Music Society's Composer Laureate award, and in 2012, received a grant from New England Conservatory to be staged in Cambridge. As a music director, Jay has worked with Liars & Believers (Boston) and the New York State Theatre Institute. He is a frequent session and pit guitarist, having played on recordings and in musical productions throughout New England and New York. On banjo, Jay has played with bands based in Brooklyn, Northampton, and Rochester, and has toured with the experimental folk orchestra the 23 Psaegz.
Current projects include a stage play about an ill-fated brewpub, coauthored with Arlington writer Mark McDonough, and a re-orchestration of an early 1900s vampire opera with OperaHub (Boston). Jay is thrilled to be singing in a musical again after a long time away from the stage! Much love to his family and to the Doo-Rays.
