Rapper Jay's chosen to take the country route.

Jay Bush first got a taste for music when he was 13.

He said: "I used to watch a lot of artists from my hometown on YouTube and decided I wanted to give it a shot. I found out I absolutely loved it and it just went from there.

"I spent most of my career rapping but I think its time for a change."

The musician attended Leamington College.

Jay, a well known song writer and performer in Daventry widely known as 'J-Script', said he's found himself listening more to country artists.

"My future plans are to make the switch from my previous music to country," he said.

"Throughout the past year, I found myself listening to more and more country artists and also working with more. I absolutely adore the genre and culture. I'm currently in the process of working with a very high profile country producer. We're creating my first EP under the new name."

He loves playing to a crowd but finds his anxiety can get in the way.

Jay prepares to release new EP.

Jay, 25, said: "I used to perform all the time, I really love it. Things can get slightly difficult due to the anxiety issues that I have, but all in all I still do my best to get as many shows in as possible and I can't wait to get back into it."

Many areas inspire the musician, who studied Music Technology at Leamington College.

He said: "I'm inspired by many things like relationships and life experiences. The artists I work with are a big inspiration to me because they've all had their own hard times and are all incredibly good at turning those situations into art, that's the most inspiring thing to me

"Everyone goes through tough situations, so being able to turn a negative into a positive is something we should all try to do."

We'll be following Jay's progress, so watch this space for his new EP.
