This is a 31 minute close-up set with a short interview with Jay at the end about his musical journey and experience performing for cameras.
"I'm just obsessed with music and all the forms it manifests both in the real world and in the digital realm. For me, I believe [performing for cameras] allows me to be creative in different ways, as opposed to if I was performing just for a live audience," Jay says.
This original set was filmed in full high definition in a single take at The Rattle in East London on 29 July 2021.
Diamond in the Rough
Worry About Me
Jay Johnson is an award-winning musician, songwriter, and producer who moved to London before his teenage years and began making music from a young age.
Jay’s naturally curious mind led him to start learning the cello. He then taught himself how to play the guitar a few years after. Jay started listening to artists such as Bob Dylan, Paolo Nutini, and Ben Howard from his early teens, and as a result, their influences can often be seen in his original works.Jay eventually began writing his own original songs, then a year later, he started busking on the streets of London, and another a year later, he began performing at pubs and venues. A few months after Jay started playing to live crowds in various venues, he decided to leave his previous career plans of becoming a doctor behind and decided to become a full-time musician. Jay’s most recent music features the styles of the early 90s hiphop artists whom he was exposed to at an even younger age.
Jay's last significant performance was at an event on Trafalgar Square that had a turnout of 20,000 people including the mayor of London.
