Enterprises Ultimate Tribute Artist

Jay was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana where he lived most of his childhood life. Growing up in a house where his father was a professional musician made it very easy for Jay to follow in his dads’ footsteps. It was no surprise that Jay had an ear for music, but at the early age of three, his mom played a record of Elvis Presley singing ‘Hound Dog’. As he listened, his eyes lit up, he smiled with excitement and his hips started to move. Begging his mom to play it over and over again, Jay soon became a huge fan of the King of Rock ‘n Roll. Shortly after, Jay got his first taste of live performing, impersonating Elvis for his family and friends at social gatherings. “I would wear white pants and a white dress shirt, flip up my collar to mimic a jumpsuit, pretend I was the King and put on shows for anyone who would watch”. Growing up, Jay read extensively about Elvis’ life, studying Elvis’ performances, movies and singing style. When Jay wasn't studying Elvis, he was doing extensive studio work or performing live on stage behind a drum kit. Jay was considered a professional drummer at the young age of only 14.

In 2014, Jay entered the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist World Championship. Its a contest that hosts hundreds of Elvis tribute artist from around the world, all competed to win the title of the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist World Champion. This is the only contest that is produced and sanctioned by the estate of Elvis Presley (Elvis Presley Enterprises). After two days of competition, Jay won the world title and is now recognized by Elvis Presley Enterprises as their ULTIMATE WORLD CHAMPION and the best Elvis tribute artist in the entire world. Now as a full-time entertainer, Jay travels the world performing his tribute to The King in destinations such as Ireland, England, Germany, Russia, Japan, Australia, Norway, and Mexico just to name a few. He has the honor of being 1 of only 3 Elvis tribute artist in the world to perform in a jumpsuit with members of Elvis’ TCB band. Jay is also the star of the largest Elvis production in the world, “The King in Concert” and is also one of the stars in the only Elvis production sanctioned by the Elvis Presley estate, “Elvis Lives”. His vocal ability, incredible likeness, and natural charisma have made him one of the foremost, sought-after Elvis Tribute Artists on the planet. His southern form and captive charm coupled with his uncanny sound and presence will make you feel as if you are watching the King himself. Jay feels extremely blessed to be able to travel the world performing on stage as his lifelong idol. He also considers being an Elvis tribute artist a true blessing and holds great honor in paying tribute to the greatest entertainer of all time.

A truly international star

Hello, my name is Sylvain Leduc, I was born in Valleyfield, Quebec, Canada but spent my childhood and teen years in Massachusetts, USA. I was just 3 years old when my parents decided to take the adventure of moving to the United States.

My passion for ELVIS came at an early age since my family were all into Elvis’ music. I remember buying my first Elvis record “I’m Leavin/Heart of Rome” and from the age of 15 years old to today I’ve been working on reproducing Elvis’ posture, moves, and perfecting my voice to the King’s image.

After hundreds of participations, concerts, contests, weddings, private parties, fund raisers, etc.… I continue to live this passion that just grows and keeps growing and stays very much alive in me and the thosands of fans that take the time to come watch my performances.

Still today, I have a deep respect for the artist and human being that Elvis was and for that reason, I concentrate on reproducing Elvis’ concert years to relive the magic and his precence and incredible charisma on stage.
