With acclaim from Earmilk, Medium, Indie Shuffle, Impose Magazine, HypeM, Musically, Noise Porn, SoundCloud and many more, Jay Pray releases his self-titled debut album. It is an honest, personal window into his world and is a refreshing arrival in a saturated electro-pop scene. Colorful, lush synths and textures are complemented by tasteful guitar riffs and a driving, groove-centric rhythm section. Justin’s production is accentuated by Electric Lady’s Brandon Bost, and the two shine brightly in soaring, powerful orchestrations and crescendos that inspire and excite. Justin’s atmospheric vocal performances accentuate the music he makes, and his whimsical lyrical musings make this a perfect, can’t miss summer smart-pop album.
The award-winning heartbreaking short-film for Jay Pray’s album cut “Smile” won “Best Music Video” at Silver Sound Showdown Festival, “Best Cinematography” + “Best Editing” at Freedom Shorts XVI Festival and was accepted to Pasadena International Film Festival.
