Set to Perform in Amsterdam in February – Tickets On Sale Now

Nashville, Tenn. (February 2, 2024) — Today, Curb Records recording artist Jay-Way releases his debut LP, Island Forgotten – listen HERE – along with the music video for the album’s “Show Is Over” – watch HERE. Island Forgotten arrives after Timbaland praised the pop powerhouse after hearing snippets of the album on Instagram Live earlier this week. In support of Island Forgotten, Jay-Way will perform two live shows in Amsterdam in February – tickets are on sale now HERE.

Island Forgotten crystallizes Jay-Way’s cosmic aesthetic. His reflective sensibility is relatable as he pours his heart on distinctive soundscapes with notes of hip-hop, pop-punk, house, and afro-beats while his lyrics explore self-discovery, love, compassion, acceptance, and, most importantly, vulnerability. Earlier this week, Grammy® Award-winning producer Timbaland recognized Jay-Way’s sonics and poignant melodies after hearing snippets of Island Forgotten on Instagram Live. “You got a vibe,” he said. Complex Netherlands posted a clip of Jay-Way’s interaction with the music luminary HERE, as well.

“With this title, I want to paint the picture of living on your own island,” explains Jay-Way. “Living on an island has several meanings to me. On your island, you’ve isolated yourself from your surroundings. It can make you feel more confident. Embracing your uniqueness. Not moving on anybody’s tempo but your own.”

Since gaining national acclaim for the viral collaborative single “Summertime” with rap icon Snoop Dogg and labelmate Steven Malcolm, Jay-Way continues to manifest his wildest dreams. He spent time touring through Europe supporting RINI’s sold-out “Past The Naked Eye Tour,” earned a Berlin Music Award nomination, and performed his first arena show in front of 15,000 people at EO Youth Day in the Netherlands.

About Jay-Way:
Amsterdam artist Jay-Way wants to redefine pop music. In fact, he’s set on it. But not just in a visceral sense. He wants to move beyond the conventional rapper/singer stereotype and reset the trend. His sound is a hybrid of classic ’90s hip-hop with a bit of vintage soul. It’s surged with a bolt of elite level pop and layered with some heady, contemplative lyrics. The vibe is more natural than intentional and truly a reflection of what Jay-Way stands for — freedom of expression in style, in music, and in life.
