Jay Whalley grew TPFF from a humble laptop in a rehearsal room, into a slightly better laptop within a purpose-built recording space, and has tracked and mixed hundreds of sessions. He recorded a song per day for one year with Peter “Blackie” Black in 2016. Jay is known for singing in punk behemoths Frenzal Rhomb, playing bass in several bands, and is a keen percussionist and organ player, with an advanced ear for vocal harmonies and melody. He once had a pig tapeworm removed from his brain.
Jay brings years of performance, songwriting, singing, and studio recording experience to each session. His guidance, patience and relentless enthusiasm ensure that our artists record the best performances they are capable of. Additionally, Jay’s egg-shaker and triangle work are considered “world’s best practice” by at least several people.
