From working with various EDM artists at his own independent record label during his younger days to a long career in makeup, to finding his way back into music years later, Jay Anthony hopes to make uplifting music that gets people on their feet.
LISTEN TO ‘FOLLOW RIVERS’, OUT NOW HERE
His upcoming single, ‘Follow Rivers’, out now, is a cover of ‘I Follow Rivers’ (by Swedish artist Lykke Li) where he has teamed up with rising artist Duchess, whose sweet yet sensual vocal stylings elevates the melodic composition and emotive lyricism of the track.
Jay who used to DJ alongside his sister, a renowned DJ in the Chelsea music scene, has always been heavily influenced by old-skool disco and dance tracks, bringing a modern EDM twist to the original. The atmospheric soundscape, Duchess’ vulnerable delivery and the innovative touch of Jay’s dance music expertise makes ‘Follow Rivers’ worth many listens!
Helping him reinvent the track is his production team of Patch Boshell and Joseph Suddick, both of whom Jay credits for bringing his creative vision for the song to life.
Speaking of the track and its message Jay says :
“I am hoping my music can lift people’s spirits in the current climate as music is such a great way of bringing people together, even though we are apart”
With a steadily growing online following – with over half a million streams across his Spotify channel- Jay’s plans for live events and performances are currently on hold due to the pandemic, but this doesn’t stop him dancing in his living room and creating new music for everyone to hear.
‘Follow Rivers’ is only one among the many releases Jay has ready for this year. From remixes and covers to original compositions with a variety of artist features. With a lot more to come, 2020 is set to be a busy year of music-making for this passionate rising star.
