New York City-based singer-songwriter Jay Elle has released his new single, the vibrant and uplifiting acoustic-pop track Ease Up (Into Love), on all download and streaming platforms.
The new song is the lead track from his new Ease Up EP and showcases his timeless and immediate songwriting against a backdrop of chiming folk-pop guitars and a mellow, summery energy. Fans of The Lumineers, Counting Crows, Jack Johnson – you just found your new jam….
“With Ease Up (Into Love), I wanted to share an optimistic and positive message and talk about moving on from situations that may not be perfect or not working out at all,” explains Jay on the new single.
“There is enough negativity around. We should keep in mind that negative headlines get us going – some folks out there know how to push our buttons. We don’t have to get roped in. I am optimistic about the future, and I wanted to share that view.”
Jay Elle takes his inspiration from all kinds of music genres and artists, like Cole Porter, Freddie Mercury, Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder, Jay-Z and Billy Joel. He is also a fan of more contemporary artists like Selena Gomez, Avril Lavigne, Katy Perry and others. His music is influenced by the artists he admires, as well as the people in his life, nature, pets, current events and whatever strikes his creative chords.
He also had the pleasure of working with a number of studio and live musicians in New York City, such as Margaret Dorn, Jett Harris, Byron Estep, and others. With Ease Up (Into Love) enjoying widespread USA Adult Contemporary and County radio support, Jay’s honest and organic music will continue to make a connection with listeners wherever it is heard.
