ST. LOUIS, MO – STL recording artist, Chris Jay, is set to release his first official EP “Thanks For Nothing” on September 1st 2017. The 5-track EP is a collection of records that marks Chris’ most recent trials, tribulations, and transitions in life.
In 2015, Chris made the decision to move to Chicago, thinking it would position him for better opportunities to make his mark in a bigger music market. With the lack of [known] resources available to him in St. Louis, the move seemed like a good idea. As time passed in Chicago, Chris quickly realized this move for opportunity didn’t necessarily mean it would be easier. “I had a full-time job that was an hour away from where I lived in Chicago. Not being familiar with the city, I was late to work every day. The car I had was old and kept breaking down on me. It was bad and I couldn’t focus on music because I didn’t have the time.”
After only one year living in Chicago, Chris was fired from his job. Two months later, he moved back home to St. Louis. “The move back made me really put things into perspective. I contemplated whether or not to continue pursuing music. I was in a really dark place for about four months straight.”
His decision has been made and Chris Jay is ready to show his audience who he really is through his most personal and prized possessions – his music.
