"Aymar is a classic, and Overtime is a knockdown priced master-work."-David Farrell, Feb 18, 2013, New Music Canada
"It gives me great pleasure to say that this (Overtime) is a folk record. Aymar is a hard-touring, have acoustic guitar, will come to your town guy. Producer David Baxter keeps things simple, with the basic accompaniment letting the lyrics tell the story in each number. See, that's folk, in my view, music from the people, to make you dance a bit and make you think too."-Bob Mersereau, March 3, 2013, CBC Radio One
"Halfway Home, the fourth release by Toronto-based singer-songwriter Jay Aymar, is the album that could win him a substantial following for his well-crafted songs about everyday people living everyday lives. Aymarís song - including one which has been recorded by Ian Tyson - are well worth seeking out."
-Mike Regenstreif, (2010) Sing Out Magazine
"He frequently gets compared to John Prine or Lyle Lovett for his "homemade" songs, but this critic also hears a little of Leonard Cohen in his soft, low-key delivery... (Halfway Home) A good disc for singers to swipe some new songs from and yet another nice effort from Jay Aymar."
-By Barry Hammond, Penguin Eggs. Summer 2010
"Jay has written a true Canadian folk song, My Cherry Coloured Rose...and itís a classic. "
"Jay Aymar rocks!"
