Jay Dot Rain is creating a paramount sound with a “Southern aesthetic that feels broad enough for coastal cats to vibe along too” Deep-rooted in the Heart of Dixie, Jay Dot Rain was influenced by the upbeat trap raps flooding out of Georgia from the east; the trill, syrup dripping’ beats from Texas on the west, and the southern fried country rap tunes bumping out of Mississippi, and of course the laid-back pimpin' so prevalent in the music streaming out of Louisiana. With the collective influences of such classic Southern sounds it is without surprise that Jay Dot Rain is creating the new sound of Alabama.
