Nat Jay took her first steps in her parents’ music school and continues to land on her feet in the world of music today. Her songs have been placed on networks around the world, including ABC, The CW, MTV, Nickelodeon, CBC, CTV, Global TV, and Lifetime. Most recently she's been nominated for SOCAN Songwriter of the Year at the 2011 BCCMAs.

After studying music at the University of British Columbia, Nat Jay put her education to use as a promising singer/songwriter in North America’s musical landscape. Since releasing her debut EP, Lights Across the Sky, to a sold out room at Vancouver’s Media Club, she has been compared with powerful performers like Joni Mitchell, Patsy Cline, Alanis Morissette, and the Dixie Chicks. She has shared the stage with such esteemed songwriters as Canada's own Juno award winner Dan Mangan, Matthew Barber, Oh Susanna and Justin Rutledge, as well as NYC’s Jay Brannan and Australia's Angus & Julia Stone.
Nat Jay's compelling and highly accomplished vocal delivery will certainly turn heads in a noisy club, but it is her emotive songwriting ability that will steal the hearts of each and every audience member.
