Jay Kay is best known as the lead singer of the British funk/acid jazz band Jamiroquai. Kay’s music career started in 1992, the same year the band was formed. The band has sold more than 40 million albums worldwide and won a Grammy Award in 1998.
The band celebrated the 20th anniversary of their first album, Emergency on Planet Earth. They had a quiet 2012, playing just four shows – though in far-flung locations such as Kazakhstan and South Korea. Financially, Kay is regarded as a shrewd operator. He owns more than 20 collectible cars and lives in a Buckinghamshire mansion. His companies Jamiroquai and Jamiroquai LLP, declared nearly £21 million net assets in 2011-2012.
