NEW AUDIO DIARY POSTED! 

"It's been a while since I posted an Audio Diary, and in honour of my WCMA nomination, I thought it would be a good time! These diaries give you a taste of the songs on "All I Think When I Wake Up" and I talk a little about the writing and recording of each song. There are 8 more (and 1 more to come) on my soundcloud if you want to catch up! Today's Audio Diary is about "This Town" --a song for anyone who has ever felt like they didn't fit in." --Nat

PRESS RELEASE - "AN INDIE ARTIST'S GUIDE TO MUSIC LICENSING IN FILM & TV WITH NAT JAY" 

For immediate release:
VANCOUVER’S NAT JAY SHARES MUSIC INDUSTRY KNOWLEDGE IN PEER-TO-PEER SEMINAR

“AN INDIE ARTIST’S GUIDE TO MUSIC LICENSING IN FILM & TV”
MAY 10 AT VSO SCHOOL OF MUSIC
1pm-4pm

(Vancouver, BC) ~ Singer, songwriter and recording artist Nat Jay is excited to announce her seminar, "An Indie Artist's Guide to Music Licensing in Film & TV" on Sunday, May 10 at the VSO School of Music (843 Seymour Street) from 1pm to 4pm.

Since releasing her first demo in 2007, Nat Jay's folk-pop songs have garnered close to thirty placements in film and TV such as The Hills, The City, Awkward, Heartland, Degrassi, Continuum, Bitten, and most recently Australia’s Winners & Losers.  An accomplishment for any independent artist, this feat has not only built her a reputation in the local music industry, but has also gained her fans from countries around the world.

Nat Jay's entrance into sync licensing came through a fateful turn of events when the first song she ever record - an unmixed, unmastered demo of her song "Love When I Can" - was placed in an emotional end-of-episode montage of the ABC series Men In Trees in 2008.  Since then, she has done everything she can to develop her knowledge and network in this sector of the industry, and is looking forward to sharing this knowledge with her peers.

"The question I get asked the most by both new and established artists is always, 'How do you get your music placed in film and TV?'", says Jay.  "The tough thing is, it's not a short answer.  It's something that has taken me years to learn and is continuously evolving.  I wanted to find a way to address this question for as many artists as I could, so I broke it down into a step-by-step approach and came up with the idea for the seminar."

With a background in public speaking and many years of experience in the performing arts, this has been a natural fit for Jay.  She has already presented several successful lectures for Music Publishing classes at Pacific Audio Visual Institute and has now opened up registration for her first public seminar.

"Educational panels and seminars in the music industry are traditionally run by industry professionals.  Hearing the info come from a peer, who is out there working hard and trying to have a successful career just like they are, carries a special kind of value for artists.  It's coming from someone they can relate to and gives them something attainable to strive for.  It feels more like we're all in this together."

The registration fee for An Indie Artist’s Guide to Music Licensing in Film & TV with Nat Jay is $99.  Registration is required at www.natjay.com/seminar.

NAT JAY NAMED AS ARTIST TO WATCH ON 'OVERNIGHT AMERICA' 

Some more kind words from Keith Creighton last week on CBS St. Louis's Overnight America about "All I Think When I Wake Up." Click here to listen to the audio clip on Soundcloud.

“She sounds like the next Alanis Morissette. It has the urgency of the early Liz Phair record, but she has a lovely voice, kind of like the lead singer of the Cranberries. A lot of singer/songwriters have the look…but you also have to have the songs and you have to have the pipes. It’s so rare in all the CDs that cross my desk at Popdose that someone has all three, and she really is hitting on all cylinders.”

NAT JAY MAKES TOP 10 LIST FOR POP ALBUM OF THE YEAR ON POPDOSE 

Nat Jay is thrilled to have her 2014 release, All I Think When I Wake Up, listed as #3 on POPDOSE’s Top 10 Pop Albums of the Year.
 
“Considering most of the acts on this list are backed by big time celebrity singers, major labels and over-priced producers, the pop revelation of the year comes in the form of a lovely indie singer/songwriter named Nat Jay. This bombshell Canadian is just starting to make waves south of the border. All I Think When I Wake Up kicks off with a winning dance number, ‘Can’t Getcha Out’, but really hits its groove with a string of breathtaking country flavored pop songs that recall peak-level Alanis Morissette and the Cranberries. This album hits the singer/songwriter trifecta: she’s got the look, she’s got the pipes and the songs are world-class. Here’s hoping these songs find their way across the many ponds.” – POPDOSE
