Be it the music, the performance, the painting or the film - creating has always been what he is about.
Singer/songwriter Jay Makwana has been a striking performer since the age of four, having played at prestigious venues such as the Royal Albert Hall, London Hippodrome, The Jazz Café, Curve Theatre and indigO2 - as well as appearing on ITV's 'This Morning'. His musical style is best described as combination of “soulful pop" with an RnB flavour. In 2009, Jay released his debut single ‘No Sunshine’, which was well received on Buzz Asia and the BBC Asian Network. The video was aired on MTV, VIVA and Channel AKA – sparking popular interest. His second single, ‘Style’, followed in 2010 and received in excess of 3,000 downloads on iTunes. Jay's interest in music and performance first stemmed at an early age when watching a Michael Jackson video. This was and always will be one of the main inspirations for his undeniable passion for dance. Growing up, as well as being influenced by a number of different styles, Jay strived to bring forward a unique sound – not one designed purely for serving a particular time in music. Coming from a creative family, he was instantly put into the spotlight from a young age to showcase off his singing and dancing abilities. His new album ‘Art from the Soul’ (2013) has been a natural progression over the years with every song on the album being written and perfected by Jay himself.
