Jay Parmar

As well as being a solo artist, Jay has worked and recorded with a variety of bands and musicians over the years, including Eden’s Curse, Iron Knights and The Inner Road.

He is currently working on a new album with his band 7EvenSept, featuring Butcho Vokovic on vocals, Lucio Manco on Bass and Garry King on drums. The songs hark back to Jay and Butcho’s Lynch Mob/Badlands influence but with a contemporary take on the hard rock style of music.

Jay’s other band‘ The Cover Up Conspiracy’ is a progressive rock instrumental band with keyboard wizard Fabrizio Joblonski (Achillea). They are currently working on a new album which will be completed in 2016 and is much influenced by bands such as Dream Theatre, but with his signature Eastern influence sprinkled over the top to create a wonderfully rich and compelling piece of work designed to take listeners on a memorable and individual journey.

He is also a full time mix engineer and producer and has worked on numerous albums, the latest being the 2014 release ‘Revenge’ by UK rock band Skin’n’Bones and is currently producing and working closely with guitarist Mike Rotella on his latest album.

2013 also saw Jay recording with UK Metal band Iron Knights with the single ‘Destroyer’ being released. He played live with the band in September 2013  at the Swordbrothers Festival in Andernach, Germany and supporting Diamond Head and Uli Jon Roth at the O2 Academy Islington during their UK.
