Jay Elle’s latest release, the 12 song album “Ride the Wave”, was recorded, mixed and produced by Caleb “kbc” Sherman (Cygnus Sound Studio). The album was mastered by Paul Logus (plxmastering.com). The album has received rave reviews:
“RIDE THE WAVE: Nominated for ALBUM OF THE YEAR. If you aren’t listening to RIDE THE WAVE right now, you don’t know what you’re missing.” IndieShark
“This is a juggernaut of an LP… an instant classic in my book for sure.” Melody Maker
“The pandemic feels like one of those endless rainy days that I hated as a child. Boring!!!!!” says Jay Elle. “Back then, on rainy days I couldn’t go out. According to my mom, if I were to get my hair wet I would most certainly catch a cold. Apparently, everyone else’s mother thought so too. There was no one to hang around with on rainy days. At home, I was on lock down with the same old toys. No guitar then. No Internet. This new album is about how to best enjoy yourself while waiting for the sun to shine again.”
Whether he relies on pop, rock, or more intimate voice and guitar arrangements, Jay Elle obviously puts a lot of effort into crafting excellent lyrics with powerful messages. His latest release, the LP “Ride the Wave” focuses on sharing his way to deal with the pandemic. “I think that much of what we do in life is ride one wave after another, as best as we can. Some waves are fun to ride, like recording a new album, and some are tough. Riding a pandemic is no picnic. But what choice do we have? I take life as it comes, and ride the wave.”
All of the songs on this new album are fun waves to ride. “Ride the Wave”, of course, and “Want Me Bad”, “Miss Mess”, “Rainy Day”, and a song written for The Vampire Diaries actress, Nina Dobrev: “Tequila Kiss” (Instagram @nina).
“I am a big fan of Ms. Dobrev. I wrote ‘TEQUILA KISS’ about Nina and my experience as a fan and follower. I think Nina is a terrific actress. If we ever meet, I would love to discuss how she prepares for a part. She is “all emotion”. And always very precise. Her energy is amazing. She is very entertaining, on screen and on Instagram. It’s very inspiring to watch her work and follow her as she travels around the world.”
