HEAR THIS: Jaymes Young

March 07. 2014 | By Mike Gerry


Originally from Seattle, Jaymes Young is one of those chill wave artists with a myriad of influences. When his song “Darkstar” came out in 2013, the blend of pop, R&B, rock and hip hop created a buzz. Now with a full 13 tracks that you can download below on his soundcloud, Young proves to be a prolific songwriter with a knack for making his dark, introspective lyrics still sound uplifting.

The fourth track “Moondust” finds Jaymes sa far away, longing to bury his love away so that person can move on in the world. The atmospheric single hits you with sad emotion like a lot of his songs, but keeps you feeling like he is doing the right by that person.
