Jay Stansfield Short Info

Jay Stansfield has been writing, recording and forging his own unique style of music for over 15 years in various bands with some early successes including two John Peel sessions, tracks played by Steve Lamacq and TV appearances on BBC Beatroom and Channel 4. Jay performed a full UK tour for his solo album LOVISM released by UK label WLM including a support slot with Mike and the Mechanics, a remix album titled UNWOUND featuring remixes from Martin Carr (The Boo Radleys), James Atkin (EMF) and Nigel Clark (Dodgy) amongst many others and a second full album ‘Gobstopper’ which secured an Amazing Radio session for Bella Union boss Simon Raymonde and frequent airplay on Amazing radio.

Jay’s music receives regular airplay all over the world including stations in the USA (Hamilton Radio, Qstar Radio, Pure Pop, Scrub Radio, Radio Free Joshua Tree, Alan Haber’s Pure Pop), Australia (RadioJJ), France (Radio KC) and huge support from UK community radio stations (SevernFM, CroydonFM, Salford City Radio, Drystone and AllFM)

With over 10,000 followers and 50,000 plays on Soundcloud Jay has self-released his third solo album 'Birth & Death' which has been welcomed with great reviews:

"An album of wondrous quality and interest" 8.5/10 - LouderThanWar

"It might just end up being my album of the year" - Ralph's Life

“A cleverly layered mixture of what might suitably be called contemporary 'baroque prog'” 8/10 - thirtythreerpm

“The gorgeous “Sex on My Mind,” with its welcome Pink Floyd overtones; the relaxed, poppy vibe of “Superman Thief,” with its McCartney-esque up-and-down bass line; and “The Sadness,” a folky, hymn-like, emotional wonder, Pure Pop Radio favorite Jay Stansfield’s latest album is another typically adventurous collection of songs ” - Alan Haber, Pure Pop Radio

“Jay Stansfield records wonderful, low-rent psychedelia (and I mean that in the nicest possible way)... with limited resources and a vast imagination” - Adam Walton, BBC Radio Wales

Jay Stansfield’s prolific and expanding music catalogue is worthy of a place in anyone’s music collection and if you haven’t heard anything yet, then it could be worth checking out what all the fuss is about.
