Jay Stolar

More Than We Think

October 8th 2013

There are musicians, and then there are artists. Jay Stolar is an artist. A creative force of nature who not only sings and writes his own songs, but also produced his debut album and plays a multitude of instruments including guitar, bass, and piano with expertise and grace. Like Prince, Jack White and Sting before him, the one-man musical tour de force easily slides between one genre to the next, each tackled effortlessly with style. At his heart Jay Stolar is a soul singer bar none, falling somewhere between Bruno Mars and Smokey Robinson. Or James Morrison and Ray Charles. Or maybe Marc Cohn and Marvin Gaye with a splash of Daryl Hall.

As the former lead singer for the band Julius C, Stolar honed his natural front man skills in small clubs and dark bars, learning how to transform a room full of strangers into life long fans hypnotized with rapt attention and admiration, while connecting with audiences on a deeper, almost spiritual level. His live performances are celebrations of old school showmanship and heart.

Currently residing in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, Stolar is an active and vibrant part of the NYC music scene. In 2012, he played CMJ, SXSW and a 24-week residency at Rockwood Music Hall in NYC. The Rockwood shows grew week to week packed with music fans and critics alike, all who raved about Stolar’s natural charisma and timeless songs. In addition, Jay toured with Charlene Kaye, Alexz Johnson, and Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds throughout the United States. His song “Like You Do” was also heard on The CW Network’s teen drama: “90210.”

2013 saw the release of Jay Stolar’s brilliant debut album More Than We Think. The 10 track disc is packed with heart gripping songs including “Pick A Side,” “Holding You All Through The Night,” Leading Me Down,” the uplifting “Lost,” and the album’s first single, “Like You Do.”
