JayWood is Jeremy Haywood-Smith from Winnipeg MB
What started as bedroom "sad jangle pop songs" just singing about how sad or miserable he was, things slowly started to change as time went on (both style and direction wise) into the more "psych funk" sound that is shown today! JayWood carries a unique sound that has been entirely self-taught, and manages to combine indie-pop with jazz chords and a psychedelic feel. His music is heart-felt and therapeutic at its core, but hosts a feel-good dance party at live performances.
"Electronic groove has shone brightly on JayWood, illuminating the multi-faceted sound with lightning bolts of funk, psych-rock and pop. Comfortable within these jumbled spaces, JayWood’s rhythm is ever-changing, but always consistently emerging triumphant!" - BIG FUN
His musical style is a blend of a handful of different genres ranging from: Funk, Indie pop, Jangle Jazz, Hip-Hop, Psych Rock, Shoegaze, Dreampop
Influences: Mac Demarco, King Krule, Tame Impala ,Nick Hakim, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Jerry Paper etc
