|Location: Jersey City, New Jersey, Untied States|
|Biography: Hip beats, very catchy hooks, great verse and rhythms, absolutely a great singer, a skilled songwriter and a wonderful all around musician. His music is perfection with the amazing ability to cross over from Pop/R&B to Hip-Hop and back. Jay Saint reveals a sensitive side and sexy side of him with subtle messages and textures mixed in – all arranged perfectly to achieve maximum results.
Jay’s parents had the right idea. They kept his mind focused on academics and athletics. Both students and faculty were amazed with Jay’s talent. Jay’s talent was a reality to others, but it wasn’t to him. Life growing up was challenging, both personally and financially. He paid and paved his own way through college, receiving a full scholarship to play football for Elizabeth City State University. Through all this he never stopped writing music, producing music or performing music. It was truly who he was.
Jay Saint’s lead single, “U.V.” (Ultraviolet), is off of his new debut CD, “High Treazon”. This single is the culmination of going through mental, physical and musical challenges this past year. Now morphed into a totally different individual, Jay is being noticed by everyone who crosses his path. He’s sharing his glow and inspiration with that special someone stating that ‘whatever she needs, he can give it to her now’, making her Ultraviolet. His hope is to share that glow with the world. “U.V.” has an incredible beat, with a catchy hook unique vocal styling and all the potential to become a Hit Record. All you’ll want to do is get up and Dance to this song.
This single is representative of the entire CD, conveying a swagger that only belongs to him. He shows a consistency in style, performance and all around talent which is a mark of a true musician.
My first impression that I had when I heard “U.V.” was a similarity to Michael Jackson’s style of music. It caught my attention and was able to hold that attention for a long time. There aren’t many artists that can do that. You can listen to one song and lose your attention quickly. That beat and that rhythm and and his unique style all keeps you captivated right from the start. His commercial style of Pop/R&B is what we need. Jay Saint continues that trend where Michael Jackson left off.
Jay Saint’s CD, “High Treason” is estimated to be released around mid March, 2010.
He is scheduled to play at the CMJ Music Festival in New York City and the FMF (Florida Music Festival) along with a few college shows.
