.. that’s the slogan of the Project (founded 2001) from Singer- and Songwriter mr. Jay wad
Mr. Jay Wad has worked on German Stages since 1984 as a guitar player in a variety of Bands. In 2001 he moved to Hanover and started working on his own Project and Ideas.
In December 2004 he started work on the Demo recordings for the Maxi CD “Again and Again”. In March 2005 the Songs were mixed and mastered. The Producers were Jan Nemec and Ossy Pfeiffer, who also played drums. Other Musicians brought onboard were Lars Lehmann (bass), Dete Kuhlmann (vox) and also Ricardo Valdes (guitars), Hendrik Langen (sax) and Renato Scherrer (drums)
”...Rock with angular Indie Underground Appeal or something like that, in either case something different....”
It only took a short time to create a Live Performance which went out playing the various well known Clubs of Northern Germany, i.e: FAUST, Capitol, MusikZentrum (Hanover), KuFa Löseke (Hildesheim), Meisenfrei (Bremen). This lineup also played festivals including “1. Mai Fest” / FaUST, Fährmannsfest in Hanover, various City Festivals (including Fallersleben, Braunschweig) and also as the support act for "Nektar", "Birth Control" & "Heinz Rudolf Kunze".
The Band has always been able to inspire the audience; performing a show of about 120 Minutes of Rock Music
In 2006 the Band started the recording of a new CD entitled “Outside Our Reference?” with Andreas Fach (ex-Viva) and Jörn Räuber... again the press commented:
"Unique Compositions..." and "Own Musical Direction"
In 2010 he released his third album, "Between the Worlds". This time under the Hanoverian line production Kai Hoffmann, among other things, the 96 anthem "Old Love" draws partly responsible.
The Musical Style of Jay Wad is a mixture of the classic arrangements of the styles of Mark Knopfler, Neil Young and Dave Gilmour.
Ideas and Inspiration for Jay Wad come on his off-road trips around Europe, Africa and the Near East. He looks at the scenes of life, analyzing them with critical eyes, sometimes cynical eyes, but always with eyes wide open to everything going on around him.
