Astral Harvest Music & Arts Festival

The Spaniard

David Jay (a.k.a The Spaniard) is a self-taught, virtuosic, instrumental guitarist from Edmonton, AB. Born in Mexico City, Jay became obsessed with the guitar at an early age after watching his junior high school’s classical guitar teacher practice Spanish guitar music. Now as a young man, Jay has combined his love for metal, classical, flamenco, and avant-garde folk to create beautiful hybrid pieces for fans to adore. His debut EP, The Spaniard is just a taste of what’s to come. Being dubbed “The Fastest Guitar Player in Alberta,” David Jay’s live performance will both shock and amaze. Perfecting his use of a live looping pedal, Jay recreates tense and beautiful soundscapes as a one-man self described “guitar orchestra.”
