The acclaimed Cork artist is set to play the Hot Press Lockdown Sessions' Y&E Series later this week – supported by the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht.
Fresh from the viral success of his party anthem 'Liquor', we're thrilled to announce Jay Ronic as our latest addition to the Hot Press Lockdown Sessions' Y&E Series line-up. The Cork artist is set to take over the Hot Press Instagram, and perform a special live-streamed set, this Friday, July 24, at 7.30pm.
Since introducing himself as a serious force on the Irish scene with his debut EP, The Fresh Prince of Cork, last year, Jay Ronic has rapidly built up an ever-growing following. After kicking off the summer with an unforgettable guest appearance on Cal x Pepper's 'Violation', he found major success in his own right with the release of 'LIQUOR' – a hard-hitting track packed with effortless braggadocio, and centred around an irresistible hook. The video for the track, featuring up-and-coming artist Slick Bullet, has already clocked up nearly 28,000 views since its premiere earlier this month.
Jay Ronic has also been making serious waves as an online entertainer – with three million likes across his TikTok videos.
Since launching last month, The Y&E Series has been shining a light on some of the best new and emerging talent that Ireland has to offer in 2020. Across the series, 40 acts are joining Hot Press on Instagram for special live performances across 40 consecutive days, thanks to the support of the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht.
Watch Jay Ronic on Friday, July 24, as part of the Hot Press Lockdown Sessions' The Y&E Series – live on the Hot Press Instagram (@hotpressmagazine) at 7.30pm.
