Matthew Jay Dies

Up-and-coming singer/songwriter MATTHEW JAY has died after falling from a seventh-floor window.

The 24-year-old musician had been widely praised for his debut album DRAW, and had recently toured with British artists DOVES, STARSAILOR, STEREOPHONICS and DIDO.

The circumstances surrounding his death are unclear, although it is not thought there was anyone with the singer when he fell from the window in Nottingham, England last Wednesday (24SEP03).

A spokesperson for Jay told music website NME.COM, "Everyone here who knew Matthew will remember him as such a lovely guy, and a very talented artist. We are deeply shocked and send our sympathy to his family and friends."

His manager MARTYN WATSON adds, "Matthew's genius was an inspiration. He brought light to all our lives and his songs will live on forever. All his friends will miss him so much."
