Berlin-based Finnish-Russian songwriter and producer Sir Jay released his debut EP "Big Waves" on June 5th 2020.
Sir Jay's songs are inspired by the polar opposites of urban claustrophobia and the open wide of nature and how these two affect the human experience. The songwriter also examines how we live in a society that requires constant accomplishments and leaves us with a feeling of perpetual underachievement.
Sir Jay draws his influences from modern folk rock singer-songwriters such as Ben Howard, Hozier and Fink. The sounds on the Big Waves EP is built around Jay's acoustic guitars, body percussion, bold lead guitar work and even tinges of prog rock elements.
Sir Jay's solo efforts began while studying songwriting in London in 2018 where he wrote the earliest iterations of the material on this EP. After returning home to Finland he began working with top Finnish producer Markus Savijoki who is known for his work with Lake Jons and Karina. The drum work on the EP was crafted by Oskari Järvinen, also a collaborator of top Finnish pop artists like Ellinoora.
The beginning of 2020 saw Sir Jay making headway as a touring artist with a nice string of shows around Finland until the current pandemic stopped all touring. He is currently working on material for his full length album and booking new shows for the winter 2020/2021 season.
"A lovely reassuring soft voice that suits the style of music so well"
