ABOUT NAT JAY
The first song Nat Jay ever recorded was placed in an emotional episode of a major ABC TV show, making a statement to the world that her music stood up on an international level. Continuing to create world class music since then, she has gone on to receive over 30 placements in film and TV on networks around the globe.
Nat Jay's songs are personal to her, but relatable to many; her voice soft and measured, but powerful and dynamic. Her debut full-length album, All I Think When I Wake Up, received a nomination for Pop Album of the Year at the Western Canadian Music Awards and was named in the Top 10 Pop Albums of the Year on PopDose. Over the years, she has shared the stage with such esteemed songwriters as Dan Mangan, Matthew Barber, Oh Susanna, Justin Rutledge, Sebell, Jay Brannan, and Angus & Julia Stone.
Shifting her penchant for guitar and vocal pop-folk towards a more commercial electropop sound on her November 2019 album, The Flash of a Fight, Nat Jay puts life's struggles into music form, turning pain into something beautiful and proving that hook-driven pop can be synonymous with artistic depth.
As a self-managed and self-published artist, Nat Jay has been the recipient of multiple grants over the years, and has submitted many successful grant applications for her peers on a provincial and national level as well, totalling nearly $200k in funding. She is a Sessional Instructor in Music Business and Performance at Langara College in the Singer/Songwriter and Digital Music Programs, and has been asked to speak on panels for Canadian Music Week, BreakOut West, SOCAN, and Music BC. A resource for her peers, she also shares her knowledge on topics like Sync Licensing and Grant Writing with her fellow artists in her own public seminars and through private consulting.
