Like a lot of musicians, Jay Wile’s plans got derailed in a big way this year. As the pandemic unfolded all around, the Austin singer and producer turned to making beats everyday. Soon, this practice turned into Better Times, an E.P. that Jay says “was really a moment for me to document how I was feeling and what I was hearing during this time.” The record shows off Jay’s expressive voice and musical community, featuring beautiful contributions from singer Akshara, productions from Almond Milk and Billy Blunt, and more.

This week on My KUTX, Jay Wile is our guest DJ. His hour of jams include a few cuts from Better Times, shoutouts to his Austin scene, inspiration from Stevie Wonder and Miguel, and so much more. Hear Jay Wile’s My KUTX on Saturday, August 22 at 6 p.m. or anytime in the player above.
