The music industry is cutthroat and intense, with many musicians and artists competing for a spot in the limelight. So to make it big and be recognized is an impressive feat in and of itself. To do this, you need to have a great passion for music, unwavering determination, and remarkable talent. However, only having these will not guarantee your success in the world of music. What most people do not know is that it is also crucial to work with other talented professionals who can help you put out high-quality singles and records. One such person is Atlanta-based JayUncut, a highly talented music producer and instrumentalist with a soft spot for new and independent artists.
Due to the influence of his musician father, he was always surrounded by music and considered himself to be a musician ever since he was young. His career in producing first started way back in 2007 when Regina Belle, an award-winning singer-songwriter, worked with him to record the gospel song “Come Into This Place.” The track appears in Regina Belle’s album Love Forever Shines. This collaboration has opened up a world of opportunities for him in the field of producing music.
Since then, he has constantly worked hard to achieve his goal of being able to successfully build a name and establish himself as a reputed record producer. He is currently working with several artists like Lloyd, Jacquees, YK Osiris, Vory, Young M.A, Dreezy, Raheem Devaughn, Cuban Doll, and many others.
His most notable recent project is producing for and teaming up with breakout rap artist Rubi Rose. JayUncut produced four out of eight tracks from Rubi Rose’s debut mixtape titled For The Streets, including the most popular track, “He In His Feelings.”
He is also responsible for producing the freshly released track “Don Diva” ft. Rubi Rose from Young M.A’s Off The Yak project.
What makes JayUncut stand out is his love for independent artists and his passion for helping them. Through his brainchild, the JayUncut Boost, he aims to catapult these talented budding musicians to the mainstream. Not only that, prospective clients admire his generosity of freely sharing his well-organized beat packs. He does this because he understands that accessibility is beneficial to artists who are trying to come up.
When asked to give aspiring artists a piece of advice, he said, “This music thing is a journey. You need to have not only diligence and a strong work ethic but, most importantly, patience. Keep networking and stay hungry, not greedy. Chase the work, not the money. Money will then chase you.”
The producer also shared that just recently, he signed with Sony ATV Music Publishing and is working on an exciting new project—he is working on his own tape, which would feature the different artists he has discovered and has previously worked with.
As for his future goals, JayUncut wants to strategically work his way up and become a music executive at a major label. Eventually, he would like to start his very own record company and become a CEO.
