People rarely find romance in a pub. No, not that kind of romance, I mean the appreciation and warmth that comes from good conversation, a relaxed environment, and people just being a lot less constricted. Jay McAllister - aka Beans On Toast - has a firm understanding of what makes pubs so special, especially the human element of such a space. Not to pigeonhole Jay, his songs have extended past bars and have touched upon a myriad of topics that we’d all find relatable. Within this talk, Ken Grand-Pierre explores some of those topics with Jay and why the human element always rears its head within his songs.

“When the songs come, you have to let them lead you.”
