In the tradition of his musical predecessors like the world reknowned Jeff Buckley and Nick Drake, the young singer-songwriter Matthew Jay created a uniquely infectious sound that blends witty, thought provoking lyrics with a backdrop of an interesting melody and harmonies. His timeless and classic tunes are a creative mix of acoustic pop with an indie, folk-rock edge, all tied together by his skilful vocals that lend depth and soul to his overall musical vibe.
Q MAGAZINE gives Matthew Jay's FURTHER THAN TOMORROW 4/5 STARS AND Q RECOMMENDS
POSTHUMOUS RELEASE FOR TALENTED YOUNG SINGER In 2003 Matthew Jay, then a 24-year-old singer-songwriter at work on his second album, fell from a London window to his death in mysterious circumstances. Two uears previously, his first album Draw had revealed someone under the influence of Nick Drake and Elliott Smith, but this collection of unreleased material suggests he was testing those boundaries. Though his default setting remained sensitive loner, Chaos reveals a more Jeff Buckley bent, the Buckley of urgent sonic intensity, suggesting that Jay was capable of much more than whispered understatement.
