The Ride’ delivers a one-of-a-kind experience of emotional trip-hop, electronic dance and soulful ballads framed by exquisite pop-infused orchestrations.”
Tranquil, that’s the best way to describe this very down to earth album from start to finish. Jay Jacobson does an awesome job in the vocals department, hitting such high notes that I could only imagine hitting in my lifetime. Each song in the album (total of 11) have their own unique sound and pacing yet perfectly fit in with the preceding and following song, which I think more artists should do in their albums to have that overall cohesiveness to listening to the album as one large song in a sitting. It’s hard to pick my fav. song right now, but i’m leaning with “Taking the Long Way Home” and “I need A change” at the moment. The album comes out Oct.14th, one week from today!

A Los Angeles based singer and songwriter (originally from Philadelphia), Jay Jacobson, has released five full length CDs of his original music which have been played on radio and podcasts around the world. He was recently named “The One to Watch” on the “Off the Charts” UK radio show. His CD, “Ready”, includes the Top Ten internationally charting single, “Boy”. In 2010 he released his first music video for the song, “Love is Love”, (from his CD “Revelations”) which created a buzz (including stories in USA Today Online, On Top Magazine, and Towleroad), and went on to win multiple awards in film festivals. Jay wrote, performed and produced a hugely successful live one-man-show, “Mental Creatures”, which followed the journeys of three different people (a young painter, a widowed woman, and an elderly man) along with several supporting characters, weaving songs from his catalogue of CDs throughout the show. This critically acclaimed show and audience favorite had a successful six week run in Hollywood, California at “The Lounge Theater 2”. It was his first play as a writer or producer.
