After having some success in his younger years as ‘Richard Jay’ he received airplay on national and international radio and began working with some of the industry’s top songwriters. He was also included in the Converse shoes ‘rising sparks’ campaign as one of the top up and coming talents.
Calvin Harris, Dallas Austin and other top producers agree. Richard Jay is one of the most notable new pop talents to look out for. The young British pop prodigy has been stirring up interest on both sides of the Atlantic with his blend of pop, electro and heartfelt balladry.
RICHARD JAY, one serious pop prodigy at seventeen(!), who’s quite a busy bee in the studio as he writes, records, produces, and masters his own material. He’s been floating around the interwebs for some time, garnering the interest of BBC and thus being featured on a variety of radio shows. The young aspirant is also taking part in the latest Converse campaign promoting new talents on the block, to which they described Richard Jay as a “creative centipede”.
Richard is now branching out by himself once again, this time as JENKO and beginning to make his mark by releasing his latest solo track ‘By Your Side’ on the 25th June on all major platforms (i.e. Spotify, Amazon Music and Apple Music).
