Jay Stolar is a soul singer with an arsenal of heart gripping songs. His live performances hark back to the early days of R&B, when it was an artist's job to connect to every person in the room. He is a deeply influential player in the New York City music scene.
In 2012 Jay ran a 24 week residency at Rockwood Music Hall in NYC, showcased at both SXSW and CMJ, toured nationally with singer-songwriter Charlene Kaye, placed his song “Like You Do” on The CW Network's 90210, and completed production on his debut album.
Jay is now represented by Michael Morrison at Wanduta Management (Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds), New Frontier Touring (The Avett Brothers, John Oates), and Barry Perlman Esq. (Lenny Kravitz, Ben Harper). His album is expected to be released in the Spring of 2013.
“Stolar's days underground would appear to be numbered. Forget The Voice, forget The X Factor... your next great American singer is right here.” -GoodbyeBabylon.com
Jim and the Povolos
Micah has been an active performer in the Midwest music scenes for the last five years. His latest project, the OCD Big Band is a 4 piece indie folk ensemble that likes to explore as much musical territory as possible. You'll hear bits of jazz and funk and world music interwoven through any given set.
"So many styles it'll make your head spin. " says Jamie Lee Rake of the Shepherd Express.
His eclectic guitar work was recognized in the 2010 Shepherd Express reader poll when he was nominated for best guitarist.
