Jay Shaner

When going through a tumultuous breakup, there are two mechanisms for coping. You can either busy yourself in an attempt to mask the heartbreak or wallow in your pain. Local singer-songwriter Jay Shaner prefers the latter. For those who fall into the same category, Shaner has compiled a Playlist to heighten feelings of despair. Grab yourself a box of tissues and let the pity party commence.
