Since releasing her first demo in 2007, Nat Jay's pop-folk songs have accumulated close to thirty placements in film and TV shows around the world, garnering her a reputation in the Canadian music industry, as well as a international fan base. Nat Jay’s debut full-length, All I Think When I Wake Up, was a 2015 WCMA nominee for Pop Recording of the Year. In September 2015, she also released the Quiet Dreams EP and was a 2nd place winner in LG 104.3FM's VanCOVER contest for her cover of Sting's "Every Breath You Take." In December 2016, Nat Jay collaborated with electronic production duo, Cookie Cartel, to release the EP, Stoke the Fire, which Exclaim! described as "what it might sound like if the Postal Service were to make a Christmas EP," and CBC included in their coveted holiday playlist.
As a self-managed and self-published artist, Nat Jay has been the recipient of multiple grants over the years, and has submitted many successful grant applications for her peers on a provincial and national level as well. She is a regular guest lecturer at schools such as Nimbus School of Recording & Media, the Pacific Audio Visual Institute, and Langara College. She sat on the Board of Directors for the Music BC Industry Association for four years, and has been asked to speak on panels for Canadian Music Week, BreakOut West, SOCAN, and Music BC. After being asked frequently by other artists about her success, she now shares her knowledge with her peers in her own seminars and through private consulting.
