Canadian singer-songwriter Jay Aymar is known for his poetic lyrics and conversational singing style. He’s traveled the world performing over 150 shows per year. He’s recently finished his latest project entitled: The Chicken Came First (and other half-truths from my life as a touring songwriter). It’s a collection of short stories accompanied by a live CD of his most requested songs.
With songs covered by the likes of the legendary Ian Tyson and a Canadian Folk Music Award nomination, his work is garnering high praise as of late.
"There is no quibble about raising him to the higher rungs on the steep ladder of Canadian singer/songwriters, not just his contemporaries but of all time!" Penguin Eggs (Doug Swanson).
"This should elevate Aymar to front and center stage where the likes of John Prine, Randy Newman and all the others I tiresomely mentioned stand!"
No Depression Magazine (John Apice).
