Born and raised in New Jersey, Jay Diener loved music from the beginning. His parents surrounded him with sounds from Public Enemy to Oasis; From Bob Marley, John Denver and Carl Cox to Tupac and Whitney Houston. This background birthed the passion and drive to create his own songs. What started out as freestyles in the cafeteria grew into something beautiful; He took the ups and downs he experienced on life's roller coaster and turned them into words. In 2018, after losing his mom to leukemia, a fire was set under him and he began to gain momentum with his first official single Full Circle; He hasn't stopped since.
