Jay Gatz is a multi-faceted Boston born artist, hip hop lyricist and Entrepreneur. He began rapping and producing mixtapes at the age of seven, and it was at the age of 11 when he recorded his first mixtape on a karaoke machine and the name was given to him metaphorically referring to the book, The Great Gatsby.
Music was something he was always passionate about, but it was the MySpace-era that made him take his craft and approach serious. He still seemed to struggle to find his sound and pocket. After the release of his 2013 project, Bodega Dreams didn’t get received well, he was forced to take the time to rebrand and go back to the drawing board. This time instead of trying to fit in with the style and trends of today’s hiphop, he began taking the approach towards being the listeners escape from the average wordsmith. He wanted to deliver a project where regardless of topic, you can hear and FEEL the concept as well.
Gatz went on to release his second project, The Real Jay Gatz LP, on all DSP's October 8, 2018. Leading up to the projects release, he was featured on a 5-city tour during the Fall of 2017, and was featured on a second ArtistsToWatchTour during the late winter of 2017-early '18.
On August 14th 2019, Gatz released his mouth-watering project, Good Food on all digital streaming platforms as well, and has been working the upbeat, afro-pop theme, Ana Conda as his lead single. In October, he performed at the A3C Conference and Festival in Atlanta, GA. He has been featured in publications such as Thisis50, MiixtapeChiick, Based Boston, Boston Hassle, HustleandGrynd & More.
Gatz followed-up with his most therapeutic project yet, FIREFLIES on Black Friday, November 27th, 2020.
