4. Please no covers of mainstream records! Sorry :)
5. Artists, I can also provide feedback for a song you've finished and would like to take to the next level. I can also provide guidance on what it takes to get your record synced and what A&R's are looking for.
6. If you need a ghostwriter, I can do that too!
7. Have an idea and simply need a demo vocalist? I'm your girl!

    The reason Jayy Starr's name is Jayy Starr, is cause she is a STARR and always goes above and beyond on every project we work on together. Can't wait til the next one, thanks again Jayy!

    Jayy Starr is hands down my favorite rapper to work with. She is TALENTED!! She is always professional, friendly, a great communicator, and fun. Jayy always delivers top tier material, and there's not a single project where I don't seriously enjoy the process because she's got such a great vibe. Jayy is extremely smart, diligent, detail oriented, and ready to make your project bang in the best way. Hire her and you will have incredible results every single time.

  3. Review by Jerimiah B.

    Jayy Starr is a STAR. Product she delivered was EXCELLENT, creative and fun, and the turn around time was INCREDIBLE. Could not recommend more, book now.

  4. Review by Satelite

    Jayy was excellent - impossible to fault. Speedy response, flexible, fast turnaround and an amazing voice. She showed a passion and interest for the project and we were really happy with the results! Highly recommended!

  5. Review by Mark Francis

    Make a song with Jayy today -- you won't regret it! We began discussing themes for a 4-song instrumental EP, and they came back with full-blown songs full of character and captivating stories. My face was a combination of these emojis after hearing the bounce back -> 🤯🤩🥳

    Jayy is a master of lyricism who brings artistry to their craft!

  6. A: The fact that I am doing what I love every single day!

  7. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  8. A: As a rapper/writer here doing freelance work, we don't typically enjoy doing covers of another rappers song as singer would lol. Sorry in advance, but I will not do an exact rendition of anyone else's record for you out of respect for their art and my time. I can only sound like Jayy Starr on your track and no one else.

  9. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  10. A: Whatever your vision is, trust that I will give it my all to execute. Provide as much detail as possible and clear deadlines, if any.

  17. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  18. A: FLAVOR!

  19. Q: What's your typical work process?

  20. A: I want to hear about your vision. I encourage you to spare no detail and let me know exactly what you have in mind and how you hear me being a part of that. The more detail you provide, the better it is for me to bring your idea to life! I love the collaborative process so let's bounce ideas and once we both agree on a path, I will get to work! As soon as I've completed a draft (typically in a day or two) I will follow up with a demo for your approval. If it's good to go, I will follow up with stems to each individual vocal in WAV format. If you seek revisions, we'll take it from there accordingly until we get it to your liking!

  21. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  22. A: I have access to both a professional studio setup as well as a "at-home" studio with Pro Tools. Depending on your technical needs I will always strive to provide top tier vocals to you for an easy mix.

  23. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  24. A: Ludacris, Missy Elliot, and Da Brat are my top artistic inspirations. From Luda's flow to Missy's out of the box creativity to Da Brats raw and rugged cadence and bars.

  25. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  26. A: I typically provide lyrics, topline and vocals for my clients.
