Jay Bishop is a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and producer from Detroit, MI. Currently living in Tokyo, he is making music with a funk forward sound that is both retro and futuristic.
He has released 8 albums under various names and can move effortlessly from genre to genre.
His base base however is rooted in funk. Heavily influenced by the work of Jam & Lewis, Kashif, L.A. & Babyface, & Teddy Riley as well as Modern Funk luminaries such as Dam Funk. XL Middleton, and The Apx, Jay focuses on tight grooves with heavy synth bass and drums on the bottom and sweet sounding chords on top.
After working in Hip-Hop, Lo-Fi, Soul, & Electronic music, Jay is prepping his first full length release in Modern Funk. It promises to be an authentic representation of the genre while trying to push the movement forward. His song “That Feeling” is a perfect example of his reverence for the sound of Boogie. Completely written, performed, and produced by Jay, it shows his talents at crafting songs that are catchy and authentically funky. With Jay Bishop on board, the future of the funk is bright.
