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." -

By & By is a DC-based and District-loving bluegrass band, playing a mix of traditional and original music with rich, tight vocal harmony.
Developing a steady crowd of local and regional fans in their third year together, By & By has been heard at Bluegrass Nights on H Street, Acre 121, Big Bear Café, Solly’s Tavern, Sova Lounge, Iota Club and Café, and the ever-expanding Kingman Island Bluegrass and Folk Festival. In March 2013 they performed at the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage.
At the 2012 DC Bluegrass Union Festival, By & By took first place in the band competition, giving them an opening slot at the next day’s main stage performances, which included Sierra Hull and Country Current.
By & By’s first full-length album, Get It While You Can, will be available in September 2013.
