Jay Gilday has a rare convergence of skills in the world of singer-songwriters. His neatly trimmed and powerful turns of phrase, an ability to pull the listener into a particularly vivid experience, and a warm vocal instrument coupled with an always dynamic, and at time explosive instrumental foundation, make for a formidable and complete skill set. He's rooted in the singer-songwriter tradition but unique…Jay Gilday stands out from the pack.
As a songwriter, Jay threads together the colours of his own ancestral traditions: Dene spirituals, Irish ballads, Canadian folk and rock. He was raised in a family of accomplished musicians on the tundra of Yellowknife, where his music electrifies its never-ending days and nights. Whether on the main stage of a summer festival or headlining a shadowy cabaret, Jay captivates.
