Jay Milly was born in Stratford near London. Jay was adopted at the age of 2 and moved to Birmingham with his foster mother and biological brother.

Jay, back in 2011, applied for The X Factor UK and successfully got to the live finals in the boy band Nu Vibe. Nu Vibe later split and Jay pursued a solo career. Jay was later approached by manager Ryan Ashmore after being contacted to put together a new boy band for EMI. Ryan later decided Jay would work better as a solo artist and started to manage him. Ryan put Jay in the studio with David Anthony to produce Jay's first single, "Show Me". This led to Jay signing a record deal. Currently, Jay is signed to West Coass Records and his first release under the label is "Show Me", which has already been licensed by Kontor Records, with David May working on the track. Plans are now in place to launch Jay Milly as a solo artist and he is well on the way to becoming a pop sensation.
