The tragedy that hit musician Jay Rector early on in his life was a crushing blow. The loss of his brother was unbearable. Yet even in his grief, the producer took to heart the remnants of his brother’s wishes. “He told me if producing music was one of my first career ideas and I truly love music, that would be my ideal route.” shares Jay.
Today, Jay is taking what was once an abstract idea of what his brand of music would be like and turning it into a reality. Producer and songwriter Jay has been creating music since 2015. But within only six months, he had already written over 60 songs and booked a slot in a major music festival. Jay Rector has produced a total of 16 albums in his 5 years of music, and it seems that he shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
Jay is from Marshall, Missouri. At only 22 years old, the whole world still lies ahead of him. Yet in retrospect, he has had a reasonably good run as a music producer and independent artist. Jay has smooth hooks and serious club hitters. As a musician, his knack for detail brings a greater level of intricacy to his songs. “I merged my love for producing, writing, and recording in a way that defines me best,” shares Jay Rector. The producer has worked with some big names in the music industry, including Taylor Gang’s Producer Ricky P, who helped him put together his track entitled “Take It Up a Notch.”
Jay’s latest music video for his song, “Ridin’,” has been picking up a traction level exponentially increasing with time. On YouTube, Jay’s videos have now gathered close to 27,000 views on the video streaming platform.
The musician from Marshall is driven and dedicated. Moreover, Jay Rector is learning fast. It’s just a matter of time until he catches the next big wave to become one of today’s mainstream hip hop acts. Comforted by the thought that his brother is watching him from above, Jay holds no bars and takes every opportunity to climb higher up the music industry ladder. He went from a kid with an idea to a man with a solid foundation for a musical brand that will take the hip hop scene by storm.
One of Jay’s most notable records is the album entitled “Think Less, Feel More.” The album came into the market back in 2019 and had eleven high-level tracks. The songs included in the album are “Put Me on the Map,” “What’s the Move,” “No Reason,” “Feel It,” “Unstoppable,” “How It Is,” “Coming Up,” “Take It Up a Notch,” “On My Mind,” “Low Low,” and “Free My Mind.” The album features collaborative work with other artists like Kendo, Aaron Wilder, Peter $un, Casper, Trip Carter, and TrillMentee.
As much as he has accomplished, Jay Rector is still aiming higher. He hopes to start getting on tours as soon as events bounce back from the coronavirus pandemic. The artist also hopes to create a studio in Marshall to help kids like him start out, have a place to record, and be creative.
