Although Jay was born in 1997, he was fortunate enough to grow up having The Beatles in his as if he was a child of the 60’s. His Beatle-manical tendencies really came into fruition with The Beatles: Rock Band video game. Jay would go on to play the game both alongside with his friends and on his own for years until the plastic guitars wore out. Soon he would be inspired to learn on the actual instruments. Upon the release of The Beatles’ 2009 remasters, Jay obsessively began saving up to collect every CD he could find until he finally completed his collection of every entry in The Beatles’ British catalogue.
In his teenage years, Jay would enjoy seeing a few local Beatles tributes, Britain’s Finest being one of them! It was something that he always wished he could do one day, though he never thought it would happen. He was always most fond of those with a left-handed Paul in the group.

He hopes to continue his presence in Britain’s Finest and his passion for music.
