Growing up in Windsor, Ontario, Jay has always been a massive music fan at heart. With the sounds of Motown and American radio pouring in from across the river in Detroit, this modern and vintage sound became embedded in his DNA. Like many engineers and producers, Jay was introduced to music production while recording in a few local studios as a teenager. He quickly realized that he wanted to spend his life making records.
A graduate from the audio engineering program at OIART college in London, Jay then moved to Toronto where he would start his climb through the industry. He gained experience working as an assistant mix engineer at the legendary Phase One Studios and was later hired as staff engineer at the newly established Revolution Recording.
Jay has since gone independent and is quickly joining ranks with the industry’s elite mixers. To date, Jay has mixed 15 Billboard #1's, received 7 Juno Award wins (including 31 Juno Award nominations), received 8 CCMA Award wins (including 32 CCMA Award Nominations), and has worked on 30 gold and platinum selling records.
Known for his relentless work ethic, remarkable creativity, and radio-ready mixes, Jay has dedicated his life to the art of engineering and mixing records.
