Writer for Columbia Daily Herald, Jay grew up in Franklin, TN and studied journalism at Middle Tennessee State University. What led Powell to his decision to become a journalist started with his enthusiasm of Edgar Allen Poe, specifically the Tell Tale Heart.
“Since I’ve been in Columbia, I’ve watched it grow starting with the downtown square, which spread to things like the City of Columbia Arts District, events like Muletown MusicFest and any number of businesses that have popped up around Maury County, the latest being the 6th St. district with CITIES, the Building Block School for the Arts, Muletown Live! and more.” says Powell
You will be able to find Jay soon at Cities, #laughlocal stage November 25th as well as on the radio, Vintage Radio show through Building Blocks for the Arts.
