Singer, songwriter, Miles Jaye, is a native New Yorker; it is there that he studied music theory and classical violin for more than ten years at the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music, Saratoga School for Orchestral Studies and Brooklyn College.
An accomplished musician and producer, Jaye is best known for his chart-topping hits, Let’s Start Love Over, Heaven and Objective featuring Grover Washington, Jr. His heart wrenching I’ve Been A Fool For You has become one of radio’s favorite R&B classics.
While Jaye laid the groundwork for excellence with his three highly acclaimed CD’s on Island Records, MILES, STRONG and IRRESISTIBLE; he continued that standard of excellence on his own Black Tree Records with titles such as the ODYSSEY, HUMANITY, ROMANTIC STORM, THE TRUTH ABOUT LOVE, TIME TO GET MY MIND RIGHT, DIVINE ASCENSION, ATTENERGY and GOD'S CREATION, featuring his unmistakable, classic Miles vocals.
Now a Floridian, Jaye enjoys a long-standing reputation as an R&B and Contemporary Jazz writer/producer, having partnered with some of the giants of jazz on his recordings such as George Duke, Roy Ayers, Nat Adderley, Jr., Rachelle Ferrell, Grover Washington, Jr. and Branford Marsalis. The list of notables with which Jaye has shared the concert stages of the world is too extensive to include here.
Jaye is especially proud of writing and producing six tracks on the certified Gold JOY CD from his mentor, legendary R&B singer Teddy Pendergrass. A prolific composer, Jaye has penned and recorded more than 50 original compositions and has the unique distinction of recording no less than 12 different musical instruments on several of his critically acclaimed CD’s.
