CD Review: Singer/Songwriter Jay Stolar Gives "More Than We Think"

New York singer/songwriter Jay Stolar released his debut album earlier this month entitled "More Than We Think." He started to turn heads with a cover of Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" and the album's lead single, "Like You Do" was featured in the more recent "90210" hit TV show.

The ten song album begins with Stolar slowly building up the tempo of "Fall Apart." His vocals sound like a cross between the island vibe of Jack Johnson and the up-beat pop of Bruno Mars. He draws a strong resemblance to Daryl Hall on "Like You Do," then adds a little R & B flavor to his sound with "The Break." Jay shows great control over his voice in "Leading Me Down," making the softer vocals sound comforting, while also belting out the chorus with authority. Jay closes the album reaching back to his storytelling roots with the gentle acoustics of "Wondering If."

Jay Stolar has some headlining shows, including at stop at Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT on November 9th. For more information on his new album "More Than We Think" and for a complete list of tour dates, please visit
