*Need To Know - Jaymay (Artist)

Jaymay's album, 'Autumn Fallin' has been bubbling under the surface for a little while now and the bubbles have made their way over here. Initially, I will be honest, I was wary that she wouldn't stand out enough from the other female singer-songwriters around but Jaymay has a charm all her own. The record is full of New York inspired love songs and sweet anecdotal songs about everyday life. Lyrically she is a smart cookie. On 'Gray or Blue' she sweetly sings, 'I cant keep staring at your mouth without wondering how it tastes' and 'Don't second guess your feelings you were right from the start and I notice she's your lover, but she's nowhere near your heart'

If you don't like singer-songwriters then you probably won't like it, but if you do you will probably love it. Calming and hopeful, sometimes reminiscent of Regina Spektor but with less quirkiness, Jaymay should in some way... soothe your soul. - Ill-Willed Person - Blue Skies - Gray Or Blue
