"Judging by the maturity, sophistication and clever bent to his lyrics and delivery, he has not been resting on his laurels, such as they maybe....there is no quibble about raising him to the higher rungs on the steep ladder of Canadian singer/songwriters, not just his contemporaries but of all time."
-Doug Swanson, Summer 2013, Penguin Eggs Magazine
"This should elevate Jay Aymar to front and center stage where the likes of John Prine, Randy Newman and all the others I tiresomely mentioned stand. Heís that good."
-John Apice, May 2013, No Depression Magazine
"Aymar is a classic, and Overtime is a knockdown priced master-work."
-David Farrell, Feb 18, 2013, New Music Canada
"Canada consistently produces amazing musical story tellers. From
Lightfoot, Cohen, and Young to the younger Mangan and Plaskett,
thereís something in the fresh water that makes us a nation of
talented raconteurs. Jay Aymar has recently been added to my list of
favorite Canadian songwriters, and I wish Iíd known of him sooner.
Passing Through is completely stuffed full with fantastic and
thoughtful lines of poetic genius. Aymar has quite the knack for
putting words in beautiful succession and pitting fact and fiction. 9
out of 10 stars!"
-Sean Petkau, May 2012, Yorkton Review
"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 songs - including one which has been recorded by Ian Tyson -
are well worth seeking out."
-Mike Regenstreif, (2010) Sing Out Magazine
"Jay has written a true Canadian folk song, My Cherry Coloured
Rose...and itís a classic."
