Richard Jay was born in Oporto, Portugal.
In 1987 he started playing in Vitoria SC football club, which he gave up to start his story with music. Sports and music were always his passion. The choice was hard but in this game the music was the winner… 1993 was the year when he first moved our legs and hearts on the dance floor. From that time on, Pedra do Couto in Santo Tirso (Portugal) became his second home . In the meantime (2000-2004) he owned a records shop in Braga, Portugal.
