Lesser Jay makes lush and layered indie electronic music about relatable experiences with infectious pop melodies.
Lesser Jay (Artist alias of Joel Zigman) creates a wide soundscape for his music that mixes electronics and orchestration. He draws from his background in contemporary classical composing and arranging to build out a song and take it in unexpected directions. Joel also tends to the lyrically unexpected, bringing a sense of humor and self-deprecation to words that are sometimes poignant and occasionally surreal. He wants his audience to feel something, to dance, and to laugh. He is a dynamic live looping solo performer who is constantly striving to bring more interactive energy to his sets.
