Jay Stevens has produced five albums since his first “Folk I Don’t Know” in 2005, a solo project of wild guitar-driven adventure stories with production help from mAJik. This very honest sound brought Jay around the Toronto folk circuit and often singing on street corners to get the music heard. Writing from experience of trials and travels his next installment proved to be a much grittier blues collection on“When The World Pulls The Plug” (2007) which he took to Canada’s east coast to find influences of bluegrass and folk-punk alike. In 2009 Shoestring Studios released “The Illustrated Natural History Of…” a seven track testament to his growth as a poet and composer. Jay’s 2011 release, an EP entitled “Climate Controlled“ received thoughtful reviews and local radio play, focusing on the struggles of climate change and globalized governance. The latest is a generational collaboration of a country-gospel swing: “A Red Rose on Mother’s Day” featuring a song written by his grandmother in the 60′s.
