Jay Moussa-Mann has been writing songs since she got her first guitar when she was 10 years. Her music is often acoustic-folk, sometimes a blend of Middle-East and Western styles.
She was born in Stockton-on-Tees to a Geordie mother and Turkish-Cypriot father. Her parents moved to Turkey when she was a baby where she lived until she was 14 when she went to boarding school in Sevenoaks, Kent. She wrote a musical called Ruth the Musical (2018). Some of her songs have been featured on BBC Introducing Tees.
