Jay’s single “Twelve On Sunday” is about a father worried about his daughter out there on the streets. Initially I thought just by listening that the song was about a girlfriend. I suppose it could be construed either way. Apparently though Jay wanted it to be the way it is as I read in an interview while researching him. He knows that lyrics should be written for the masses, but with this song he knew what he wanted it to be about. He wanted to convey a less written about emotion such as this; about a father and his daughter.

Like I said before, he has studied classical guitar and it shows in his songwriting. His structure and progression of the song is not one traditional pop listeners will be used to. However, he lists his influences as Billy Joel, Freddie Mercury, Paul McCartney, and Sting so he may be able to connect with more listeners than I think. I mean after all, his Soundcloud has over 1 million plays alone. Someone is listening.
I wish there were more songs out by Jay Elle to get a better feel for his music. Unfortunately I have only been able to find this one. It’s a great song and Jay Elle is an amazing singer and guitarist but it would be great if there were more. I mean, I’m all for “make ’em want more” but c’mon man! 😛
Jay is expected to be on tour over the summer in Europe so make sure to visit his website for more info! Thanks for reading and as always SUPPORT INDIE MUSIC!!
