IN the MUSIC STUDIO....
Stephen Jay is a composer, bassist, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist. His original music is bass-driven, innovative, exotic funk, blending world influenced polyrhythmic grooves with elements of Jazz and Rock. His combinations of ethnic and modern instruments and styles result in unique, richly textured musical images. He first rose to national attention in July of 1984 when he was recognized as one of "Today's 20 Top Bassists" by International Musician and Recording World" magazine, with a profile included. Stephen is also the original bassist in the "Weird Al Yankovic" Band and continues to record, perform and tour with the band.
