Jay Epae (1932 - 8 September 1994), was a Maori pop singer from Manaia, Taranaki, New Zealand. He moved to the United States in 1957. His albums were released on the American Mercury label until 1962, when he switched to American Capitol. In 1966, he switched to New Zealand's Viking Records.

His single Putti Putti was a hit in Sweden after local pirate radio station Radio Nord picked it up, and he toured there soon after its release.

In 1966, he wrote a hit single for Maria Dallas called Tumblin' Down, which won her the Loxene Golden Disk Award.

He died in September 1994 at the age of 61.
