Stephens believes that his story is unique because it shows that you can get your education, but still pursue your dreams. "It's important to do things that you love." Stephens said. "I believe it's time that I do what I've always loved and wanted to do, and to share my talents with the world."
Jay R. Stephens continues to record music and hopes to find management and a label to help promote his upcoming EP tentatively titled, "In My Mind" to be released later this year. He has so far completed two additional songs, "Nobody Knows," and "Closer To You," and is working to out the finishing touches of a third song titled, "Never Let You Go." Each of these songs blend various genres together, much like his first single, "Give It Up."
