Mitchell Bretz

On Friday, March 25th, musician Jay Filson visited the University of Evansville to perform a free concert, which took place from 12:00-1:00 at Rademacher’s Café.

Filson, a Michigan native, moved to Nashville, Tennessee to pursue his lifelong dream of being a full-time musician in 2017. He enjoys writing pop music about his life, as well as performing softer versions of his favorite songs. Highlights of his performance on Friday included his own songs “6’3” and “I Hate This Phone”, as well as acoustic covers of “The Middle” by Jimmy Eat World and “Shape of You” by Ed Sheeran.

Since starting his full-time career, Filson has traveled to nearly 100 colleges to perform free concerts for students. He can be found on Facebook and Spotify as Jay Filson, and on Instagram @jayfilson
