Jay R started playing music from the young age of 6 learning first how to play the keyboard. He pursued this talent and in his early teens took up some after school classes (keyboard skill) where he found he had a natural ability of creating his own sounds through midi keys. Having a passion for music is something Jay R has always had but he explains how music was an escape for him. "We had it rough as kids there was me and my two sisters both older than me which wasn''''''''''''''''t too bad as I got left alone most the time but we moved around a lot  we paid the price as we never had a stable childhood was never in a school for more than six months so i had to find something that would always be there I didn''''''''''''''''t have to have the work on the table to see what I was doing I could just listen and create in my mind". Having done this for a number of years Jay R had the opportunity to enrol into college and pursue a course to study Creative Music Production at Westwood Campus Scarborough. Along the course of the years studying there Jay R formed a number of relations with other artists producers and songwriters One in-particular Nocks (Johnny Walker) They formed a relationship within themselves but the relationship the formed through the music they created,wrote and recorded together was something second to none. The work ethic they both brought from one another was great to be around. Not only was it about the music studios and the rehearsals for college shows the two of them had there own things going on Nocks is also an avid drum player so he was in and out of pubs and clubs performing while Jay R stayed hard with the production game networking with new producers,rappers and songwriters down to the man who plays the unsigned joints in the club.this is where he then began to build a foundation for his career path. After several assignments Jay R was given the opportunity to perform at the Creative Music Production annual festival at Birmingham''''''''''''''''s NEC along with Nocks performing in front of hundreds of other students They Both took to the stage and delivered an amazing show with dancers, lighting and an overall brilliant atmosphere making front page of the Scarborough Evening News. this was only the beginning for Jay R as his journey then took him to Leeds Metropolitan University after passing the course in Scarborough. He enrolled on a BHons course PMP (Popular Music Production) Enduring a course of music production in a completely different form. From learning to play different instruments to setting up a full orchestra for recording Jays learning intake for music grew a lot bigger than he anticipated. Through attending University some of the modules explained how making yourself a marketable product would increase your chances of being heard. Having taken this on board through the first two years of university Jay R had the opportunity to do a work placement for his third year in America at Capital Records Miami Florida. Already having family in Michigan the placement was a dead cert..  Full Bio , On Official website : http://jayrest32.wix.com/dreamchaser
