In 2014, Photay's self-titled debut EP caught the ears of indie-electronic label, Astro Nautico, who signed him to his first record deal. His music also caught the attention of music supervisor Matt FX who licensed his song RECONSTRUCT as the opening theme to the TV show, "Man Seeking Woman."
His second EP, "Sadie," drew attention from taste-maker and Worldwide FM/BBC DJ, Gilles Peterson who has featured Photay on his numerous shows.
Photay's debut full-length, "Onism," was released on August 11, 2017 and met with critical acclaim, including a glowing review and a 7.9 rating from Pitchfork. The final track of the album, BOMBOGENESIS was licensed by Apple.
In the summer of 2017, he supported Odesza on a few dates including a notable sold-out show at Red Rocks and he supported Bonobo on their Northeast, N. American leg of their worldwide tour.
Originally from Woodstock, NY, Photay is currently based in Brooklyn.
