EARLY YEARS TO PRESENT
Jay Rin is originally from Whittier, CA, and got her musical start in church choir, talent shows, school plays and performing in coffee shops alongside her father, Jim Becker – Los Angeles based singer-songwriter/guitarist and occasional Mick Jagger impersonator. Jay credits much of her musical influence to her family- her two older sisters who taught her the ways of harmony, her mom who always pushed her to go after her dreams, and her dad who taught her that "it ain't music, if it ain't got soul."
By the age of 18, Jay had 3 album releases in an Americana/roots duo @deepfriedbubblegum, 1 solo album, and 300+ solo/duo gigs under her belt from fairs, festivals, charity events, to casinos and restaurants all over California. During her time at Belmont University, Jay worked with multiple Grammy and Emmy award winning musicians in multi-media tribute shows and recordings, and in 2015, she sang on stage with the Rolling Stones at Nissan Stadium.
