The first thing that occurred to me when I heard Jay was writing this book was: “It’s about time. There are lessons here, and information, and a righteous amount of laughter. I dare you to open this book, read any single paragraph and not laugh or cry. It’s filled with human stories from the perspective of someone who’s lived a very artistic life. You may not know him now, but when you’re through, you’ll feel like he’s part of the family. You’ll even find an accompanying live CD of twelve songs, their corresponding charts, lyrics and some amazing folk art to complement the package. It’s a time capsule of sorts. Forever stamped “Aymar was here!” Be careful what you tell him though, as you just might find yourself the subject of one of his next tall tales. Richard Flohil, 2015. (Richard Flohil has spent far too many years as a writer, editor, publicist and concert promoter in the Canadian music business. So far, he has survived.)

Rubbish is rampantly successful; middling is excessively over indulged; and Jay Aymar is spectacularly under-rated. Aymar walks the same line as Tom T. Hall and John Prine, but there comparisons end. This 11-song jug of acoustic country-blues, adorned by a brilliance of accomplished accompaniment set to perfection by player/producerDavid Baxter, takes the listener on a safari, with touchdowns in hometown Sault Ste. Marie (“Overtime”, “Acadian Son”, and “Monterey” – the district he grew up in); Iraq (“Your Precious War”, a story about a soldier’s misfortune); Washington (“King of the World”); heartbreak hotel (“Your Sad and Lonely Heart”, “Three Love Stories”)to the earbud generation (“Tune Out, Turn Off, Drop By”). The artwork for the album is a Norman Rockwell bon mot. Aymar is a classic, and this album is a knockdown priced master-work. David Farrell, 2013, New Canadian Music

"Here’s the latest from thoughtful Toronto singer songwriter Jay Aymar where he really expands the reach found on his previous disc”HALFWAY HOME”. He doesn’t waste any time getting down to business either. ”Seriously Delirious” is the albums opening declaration tackling the current music scene (“the kids don’t give a shit”) and his personal mission statement (“but a song is still a song when it kicks ya where it counts”). But Aymar really knocks one out of the park with “Could It Be”, not only essaying the changes a hard man goes through in the midst of love but giving a fantastic, unrestrained vocal performance that is possibly his best on record so far. On “Garbo And Hepburn” he uses the John Prine technique of using vintage movie stars to represent the withering decay of life itself. Check this out – you’ll be glad you did. Reviewer – Robert Lawson, Sunrise Records. 2011.

"Halfway Home, the fourth release by Toronto-based singer-songwriter Jay Aymar, is the album that could win him a substantial following for his well-crafted songs about everyday people living everyday lives. Aymar’s songs - including one which has been recorded by Ian Tyson - are well worth seeking out." -Mike Regenstreif, (2010) Sing Out Magazine

Passing Through (2011)

Jay Aymar

In cart Not available Out of stock

"Given the glut of urban hipsters doing roots music, it's heartening to see that there are still populist hardcore Canadian troubadours making the rounds: add Sault St. Marie born Toronto based - Jay Aymar. He won fans with his last album Halfway Home and returns here with an even stronger effort. Fiddle and pedal steel are put to good use on country/folk ballad "Garbo and Hepburn," while the vocal harmonies of Angela Hilts and Jadea Kelly add depth to some tracks. A lovely duet with Kelly on "Worthless String of Pearls" is an album highlight. The title track has a gentler, sparser feel, showing Aymar can sing sensitively when needed. There's a little bravado in "Hold On Nashville," with Aymar threatening to conquer Music City. He may, in fact, be just a little too real for Nashville, but we'll gladly keep embracing him. Kerry Doole (Exclaim 2011)
