    Kay was born by Karen Kay, a former cabaret singer and television personality. Kay's biological father is Luís Saraiva, a Portuguese former professional guitarist, whom Kay did not meet until 2001.
    After Jay Kay's identical twin, David, died some weeks after they were born, Karen brought Kay up largely alone, which gave him "an itinerant childhood, half of it living in 'rural Suffolk and rural Devon".
    James Royal, often misidentified as Kay's stepfather, is Karen Kay's former manager whom she had a relationship with some time during Kay's childhood years. Royal had stated in his 2002 interview in News of the World about 13-year-old Kay's six-month stay in Thailand that he never married Karen Kay, but "still regards" Kay as his "stepson".

    Kay formed Jamiroquai with members Toby Smith (keyboards), Stuart Zender (bass), Nick Van Gelder (drums) and Wallis Buchanan (didgeridoo).
    Jamiroquai has sold over thirty million albums, and has spent a collective 162 weeks on the UK singles chart between 1992 and 2006 with Kay's personal wealth said to be around £40 million.


    After the huge success of Jamiroquai's first single, When You Gonna Learn, a US$1.9 million, eight album deal was signed with Sony Music Entertainment. The band's first album was "Emergency on Planet Earth". The relationship with Sony ended in 2007.
    The band's third album, "Travelling Without Moving", generated international attention with the ground breaking video of "Virtual Insanity" which earned Jamiroquai four MTV Video Music Awards. Since then, their fourth album, Synkronized, has done just as well; it was recorded in Kay's home studio located in the garden of his 500-year-old, 11-bedroom Buckinghamshire mansion.

    Kay is well known for his array of elaborate hats and headgear. When appearing professionally (in concerts, interviews etc.) he has been referred to as "the mad hatter" for his love of headgear.
    Kay has a strong interest in exotic cars and owns over 60 luxury cars, mainly sports cars. His love of cars was expressed with the release of the album Travelling Without Moving. The album's cover featured an adaptation of the "Buffalo Man" logo and the Ferrari crest.
    Kay's love of fast cars has occasionally landed him in legal trouble. In May 1998, Kay was caught driving at 111 mph (179 km/h) and his licence was suspended for 42 days.
    Kay is anti-religious.
    In a 2010 interview, Kay indicated that at one time he had a "substantial" cocaine habit. He has however been free of drugs since 2003.
    He recently started his own line of sportswear called Quai, together with the designer Hugo Boss.

    The note prepared by Dmitrii Lapshin

    Well gladly consider your musical recommendations and other suggestions! To do this itisnt necessary to register! Its enough to add your name, the message (name of the song) and the verification code.

    How to recommend?

    Its easy to determine the chances that a certain composition will be added, simply by listening to the station for a few hours. Its even faster to get oriented by looking through the TOP100 tracks.

    Three main criteria:

    1) The song should be melodic! The simplest sign of the melodic quality of a composition: desire to sing along. Or, as a minimum, when the song stops the tune should be easily continued in the mind.

    2) Of course melodic songs exist in any genre, but the track must follow our stations format. The format is limited from different sides with a few main directions: soul, funk, rock, disco, blues, reggae and other relatively calm genres. The most important thing is to avoid extremes: metal, heavy rock, rap,"chanson", opera, and other styles will unfortunately stick out from the main direction even with a bright melody.

    3) Good quality! A lot of great music, recorded mainly before the 60s, doesnt have the quality of modern sound recording. This can be taken as motivation to find a good cover.

    All recommended compositions are stored in the music database of the radio and may be playedon-air at any moment, but sometimes this happens with a significant delay.
    After the decision is made, a composition is put on-air and appears in the TOP/30/100 section of recent additions. If a composition was added on the station but attributed to another recommender it means it was recommended by them before you.
