"New Jersey’s Stay are here to stay"

From a 2016 solo project by vocalist Madison “Mad” Nave, Stay slowly but surely built itself into this talented band with four dedicated musicians from the New Jersey scene after “several conversations and low quality iPhone recordings”, it seems they were meant to be a band after all. “From playing in several bands over the years, we’ve all learned to take input from every member of the band. Making everything fun, creative, and positive.”

Fun and positivity is a running theme in the New Jersey alternative scene; claiming their own band functions as a “family”, they’ve also received a lot of love from the others around them. Becoming big in the south side, they’ve received nothing but love and support. “The south Jersey scene is truly a supportive community,” the band have commented. “Everyone wants to see others succeed and will go out of their way to prove it.”

Lifting up each other played a big role with Stay. They’re constantly performing with up and coming bands in their local area, and say that these other acts they share the stage with are “incredibly inspiring” when it comes to improving their own sound and style. They say there’s always some good talent to watch in Jersey. “There’s so much talent within this community.” They state bands such as Heather Grey, Suntitle and twentythreenineteen are some of their favourites right now, and the bands to keep an eye on.

“iwillneveraskyouto” Oct. 31st 2019



Stay is an alternative band from Southern New Jersey. What started as a solo act in 2016, became a full band the summer of 2018.

Their freshman record “iwillneveraskyouto” is scheduled to premier fall 2019. The containing 12 songs gives the audience the full scope of the bands dynamics.  Engineer/Producer Jake Clarke of Retro City Studios in Philadelphia had this to say - " last winter I met with Stay to discuss working with them on their debut LP. A lot of hard hours were put into this record. Thereʼs something about a bands first LP that is very special to be apart of. These songs weren't just put together one afternoon, Stay put their hearts into this and it shows.” Stay is not just a band, but a family of friends. Their unique personalities, beliefs, diversified take to the genre.
