"Stephen Jay's stellar bassplaying induces goosebump moments. This is why I listen to music. Strong, particularly well-crafted songwriting, "Self Avoiding Random Walk'' is a must CD for any true music lover." -Joe Kelly, Radio Show Host
âStephen Jayâs compositions range from high voltage and hard driving to exotic and delicate with endless wavelengths in between. Extraordinarily unique. His skilled bass playing borders on magic.â -Steven R. Heard, Producer
âI have personally followed Steve Jay's playing for over a decade and it is difficult - if not impossible - to find another bassist who can play the number of styles including the range of tones altered per song. It is clear that a talent like this is very rare." -Elliott Rubinson, Dean Musical Instruments
âSteve Jay defies categorization. Who else can play Bach counterpoint and Bootsy funk without missing a beat? And then throw down his own sound and style as distinctive and original as anything youâve ever (make that never) heard. As a composer, heâs a maverick
architect of groove. Steveâs songs assault you with intricate complexity, assuage you with timeless melodies, and elevate your soul with intense beauty and humanity.
-Rob Mikuriya, Producer
âStephen Jay possesses that rare gift of the courage to stand apart. He is like no one else and that is his greatest strength. Steve harbors vast amounts of genuine personality and it shows in all that he does...his voice, his songwriting abilities, his humor and lyrical intelligence, and lastly, his skill at drawing the most beautiful of sounds from his instruments. It is well past time that the world realizes what gifts this man holdsâ. -Warren Murchie, Global Bass Magazine
