The band met in January of 2013 and began rehearsing for what became a standing-room-only debut performance in Santa Fe. American JeM’s passion for music and dedication to high-quality performances continue to draw sell-out audiences and fuel a growing fan base. The trio’s artists are Jay Cawley (bass, guitar, vocals), Ellie-Ellie (vocals, mandolin, percussion), and Michael Umphrey (guitar, vocals). For the last 27 years and counting, Jay has toured and recorded with Grammy Award-winning country superstar, Juice Newton. He is also a published songwriter. Ellie studied classical voice and opera but found her voice in Americana music. She holds two songwriting awards from the Santa Fe Traditional and Bluegrass Music Festival. Michael spent years traveling the world perfecting his guitar-playing and silky baritone crooning while touring with The New Christy Minstrels for 25 years, and with Glenn Yarbrough.
