"MTV Iggy: Top 10 Asian American Tracks of the Decade"

"Jay isn’t one of the most well known artists, but I’d argue he’s easily one of the most talented. Just as the title suggests, the song was written late in the night in 2002 after an emotional break up. Somehow Jay was able to channel the raw emotion into a simple yet beautiful song that perfectly captures those impressionable moments just after a split from someone very important in life. Consisting of only an acoustic guitar and Jay’s moving vocal, the song exhibits hope and sorrow all at the same time." - GT for MTVIggy.com

"Ningin.com Interview"

"He has a voice that is so soothing, I describe it like warm cocoa on a drifty snow day... His Vocal stylings have a very youthful quality but its combined with unencumbered-poetic-mature-intricate lyrics and it’s his lyrics that always tell you a story. His ballads especially have this deep, zenful, mellow soul..." - Mia Lerda

Jay Legaspi is a singer-songwriter based in New York City. Very quiet as a child, Jay broke his silence and found his voice when he began writing his own songs on an old nylon string guitar. His style developed quickly, finding influence in everything from Hip Hop to Indie Rock to the Classical guitar work of his father.

Jay has played at many renowned venues in New York including The Bitter End, Crash Mansion, and Arlene's Grocery. He has also been able to perform outside the tri-state in Virginia, Illinois, California, and even Texas.

2010 marks the year of his debut full-length, PICTURE PERFECT. A departure from his previous acoustic-only efforts, the album embraces a full band sound to completely show the diversity of his songwriting.
