Biography

Nat Jay took her first steps in her parents’ music school and continues to land on her feet in the world of music today. Her songs have been placed on networks around the world, including ABC, MTV, The CW, Nickelodeon, CBC, CTV, Global TV, Showcase, and Lifetime. She's been nominated for SOCAN Songwriter of the Year at the BCCMAs, and found herself a featured songwriter at the Vancouver Folk Festival, a showcasing artist at NXNE,  a guest on CBC Radio 2’s “Canada Live,” and a headlining artist at JunoFest. Most recently, she scored a co-writing credit with the legendary Stephen Bishop for the song “Loveless” from his 2014 album Be Here Then. Her recent release, All I Think When I Wake Up, was also named in the Top 10 Pop Albums of 2014 on PopDose. An advocate of her industry, Nat Jay sat on the Board of Directors of the Music BC Industry Association for four years and was a committee member for six.

After studying music at the University of British Columbia, Nat Jay released her debut EP, Lights Across the Sky, to a sold out room. Since then, she has been compared with powerful performers like Joni Mitchell, Patsy Cline, Alanis Morissette, and the Dixie Chicks. She has shared the stage with such esteemed songwriters as Canada's own Juno award winner Dan Mangan, Matthew Barber, Oh Susanna, and Justin Rutledge, as well as NYC’s Jay Brannan and Australia's Angus & Julia Stone.

Nat Jay released her much anticipated debut full-length album,  All I Think When I Wake Up, to critical acclaim on September 23, 2014. Recorded in Vancouver at Fader Mountain Sound with Craig Northey, Doug Elliott, and Pat Steward of the Odds as the studio band and produced by Winston Hauschild (Hannah Georgas, Wanting, Hey Ocean), the album has already received national and international recognition, with TV placements in Canada, the US, and Australia. Nat Jay was also awarded $10,000 for the lead single "Can't Getcha Out," which was named Best of BC by Shore 104.3FM.

Nat Jay's compelling and highly accomplished vocal delivery will certainly turn heads in a noisy club, but it is her emotive songwriting ability that will steal the hearts of each and every audience member.

"There was something extremely uplifting about a Nat Jay performance. These days, it is hard to find a performer with as much heart, soul, songwriting ability and vocal power as she has." -PopYOUlarity.com
