About

As well as being a solo artist, Jay has worked and recorded with a variety of bands and musicians over the years, including Eden’s Curse, Iron Knights and The Inner Road.

He is currently working on a new album with his band 7EvenSept, featuring Butcho Vokovic on vocals, Lucio Manco on Bass and Garry King on drums. The songs hark back to Jay and Butcho’s Lynch Mob/Badlands influence but with a contemporary take on the hard rock style of music.

Jay’s other band‘ The Cover Up Conspiracy’ is a progressive rock instrumental band with keyboard wizard Fabrizio Joblonski (Achillea). They are currently working on a new album which will be completed in 2016 and is much influenced by bands such as Dream Theatre, but with his signature Eastern influence sprinkled over the top to create a wonderfully rich and compelling piece of work designed to take listeners on a memorable and individual journey.
