Born in West Brom­wich & raised in rur­al North Devon, Jay has developed an intense , lyr­ic­ally deep style of emo rap with an emo­tion­al intel­li­gence that belies his tender years.

Releas­ing his debut single ‘Only Love’ in April 2021 at the age of 16, Jay is show­ing a depth of under­stand­ing for self reflec­tion with­in his music that car­ries an eeri­ness & grav­ity that per­formed in his breath­less style leaves your head spin­ning.

In his own words he states,

The song “Only Love” writ­ten and per­formed by myself. Writ­ing began as a thera­peut­ic strategy. I often find myself con­fused and over­whelmed with­in my head­space, but struggle to express these feel­ings due to a fear of vul­ner­ab­il­ity.
How­ever by writ­ing and chan­nel­ling my feel­ings and emo­tions into some­thing cre­at­ive, such as music, I enable people to under­stand me and my thought pro­cess a bit bet­ter.

This ulti­mately allows me to feel a lot bet­ter because I’ve lif­ted a huge weight off of myself, and those around me feel priv­ileged to finally learn to under­stand my thoughts and feel­ings.

I chose to dis­trib­ute my song pub­licly to spread the mes­sage of “it’s okay not to be okay” By cre­at­ing a lyr­ics that reflect myself yet can relate to oth­er people on a per­son­al level, I believe I am achiev­ing my goal by being real, humble and cre­at­ive.
