Jay Stolar is on a journey. With an exceptional voice, infectious melodies, and honest lyrics, the New Jersey born artist has become a respected member of the NYC music scene. After writing hundreds of songs and delivering thousands of performances, he has truly arrived at a signature sound.
In 2009, Jay immersed himself in artists like Otis Redding and Bill Withers. What emerged was the band Jay & The Birds and their wonderfully executed “Soul Volume 1” EP. Again, though, something told Jay this retro approach still wasn’t right for him. He began working on a more authentic and modern sound.
In early 2011, Jay explored his new vision. He spent time alone traveling throughout the North East writing and arranging new material. He flew to England for a short tour and writing retreat with top songwriters. It was an accelerated period of extreme hard work and focus, which resulted in an album’s worth of material and a unique identity.
