Jay received his classical training at the UMKC Conservatory by concert artist Richard Cass, where in 1996 he met singer/songwriter Don Chaffer, who soon added Jay to his new band Waterdeep.
Jay continued to perform and record with Waterdeep until 1998 and has been featured on 4 of the band's albums. Since his departure from Waterdeep, Jay has split his time between teaching in Overland Park, KS, recording as a session musician on a number of albums, performing with local jazz bands, and composing and arranging music for dance, musical theater, and independent albums.
