Unique guitar styling is the trademark of musical expeditionary and singer/songwriter Jay Levesque. Appealing to fans of a wide range of music varieties including rock, blues, country, folk and everything in between, Jay engages listeners through his distinctive improvisational sound, connecting people to one another through their shared delight in diverse musical genres. Jay’s musical story is his birthright, born into a musical family, it was destiny that he would become a musician. From humble beginnings, singing as an infant, with a record collection by the age of 3 ½, to playing guitar at 10 years of age and writing songs as a teenager, Jay has pursued his art with unfailing determination. His early years proved to be a solid foundation for this self-taught musician. His music education consists of the schools of experience and through studying some of the world’s most talented multi-gifted musicians. Jay prefers artists who write their own songs, play their own instruments and combine the two in original, lyrical and literate one-of-a-kind improvisational performances. These artists shaped Jay’s musical styling and resulted in his inimitable sound. As a collector of what is termed field' recordings, Jay is a play by feel and mood artist where no performances are ever the same once let alone twice. Jay has played in shows across Saskatchewan both as a solo singer-songwriter and as a lead guitarist. Building upon his musical influences, his life experiences, and through his ear for music, Jay is destined to be a force to be reckoned with across the music community. His gift lies in his exceptional ability to create unique off the cuff vocal and guitar styling, portrayed with feeling and with heart. ~Maureen Johns ED
