Will Jay on his music: “I describe my music as a family tree. Going back two generations, I would consider my grandparents to be The Beatles, as they are my main inspiration for songwriting. My mom is Adele and my father is Elton John. I have many influences but if there’s one artist I want to sound like, it’s Elton. Jason Mraz is my uncle; my music definitely has a touch of his singer/songwriter sensibilities. I have two brothers: Bruno Mars and Sam Smith. I look to Bruno for his throwback vibe and catchy melodies, whereas I admire Sam for the honesty in his lyrics and the authenticity of his music”.
