His songs cover themes central to everyday life, love and the human condition, and are influenced by classic literary themes as a result of his Carleton University English literature degree.
Your Perfect Matador, his sixth studio album, is a collection of deeply personal love songs. Produced by Michael Phillip Wojewoda (Buffy Sainte-Marie, Amelia Curran, Barenaked Ladies), Aymar is joined by world class female vocalists Shakura S’aida, Alejandra Ribera and Chloe Charles. Ian Tyson has sung Jay Aymar's songs, he's a Canadian Folk Music Award nominee, and his work continues to garner high praise:
"There is no quibble about raising him to the higher rungs on the steep ladder of Canadian singer/songwriters, not just his contemporaries but of all time!" Penguin Eggs (Doug Swanson).
Your Perfect Matador marks a dramatic, theatrical shift in sound and style for Aymar and is yet another exceptional addition to a superb catalogue of albums.
