Jay Vaquer is a Brazilian singer and songwriter.
At the age of 10 he recorded Jingles, and he learned to play guitar. He then became an actor in the Célia Helena Theatre, performing in the musical comedy Cazas de Cazuza in 2000.
After that Jay Vaquer achieved his first popular success in the same year with his first album "Nem Tão São" with the medium-size hit "A Miragem" ("The Mirage") and the second single "Aponta de um Iceberg". The songs only reached respectable positions on the MTV Brasil chart. But the radio stations seemed not to notice the success of the singles (probably a fault of his record label). This might have been the main reason why Jay's career did not launch then.
Four years later, in 2004, Vaquer released his second album "Vendo A Mim Mesmo", and he gained the attention of radio stations with the hit "Pode Agradecer" ("You May Thank Me"), which granted him brief fame. In 2005, Vaquer released his third album "Você Não Me Conhece" with the hit singles "Cotidiano de um Casal Feliz" and "A Falta que a Falta Faz".
