Songwriting

Ranging from heavy rock to moving musical theatre numbers, Jay has a consistent output of high quality songs for clients and for his own creative projects. Drawing on the sophisticated lyrical approach of Cole Porter and Stephen Sondheim, delivered to the listener with beautifully rich music, Jay’s songs always tell a story or deliver a strong message relating to the human condition.
