13thStreetPromo: Thanks for taking the time out to have a quick chat with 13thStreetPromotions.com. We’ve heard and enjoyed the tracks, but for those who don’t know, who is the Singer named Jaz Elise?
Jaz Elise: I am just a girl who decided to take a leap of faith less than a year ago to do music for a living. I love singing, wholeheartedly. It brings me a joy, and I’ve found that the best way I can reach people is through my voice. I am fully born and raised in Jamaica also.
13thSP: When did you realize you could have a career in music? How did you get your start?
JE: I have always been singing (church, school etc), but never really took it seriously. I was mainly empowered to only do a 9-5. My exposure to the arts however empowered me to really see a career being a Recording Artist. I really got the calling and courage to do it as a career a few years ago and that’s when I started going to studio, and did a few singing gigs all while still being in school. Encouragement from my friends and family as well as a personal conviction really pushed me to decide to do it as a career though. I would say when I released my first single (“For You“) in November 2018 that’s when I decided to go full force into it.
It’s a new year, and that means a lot more music is coming your way. While we gave you some Artists to check out in Summer 2017, Producers to work with, a list of lovely ladies you need to get familiar with, and a few more Artists to keep on your musical radars, we’re gonna put you on to even more who made moves in 2018 so 2019 could welcome them with open arms.
*These Artists are not ranked in any way, so nuh badda wid di mixup!
Matt Dewar has been working his way up to be heard. Armed with a melodic delivery and ability to adjust no matter the subject matter, Matt could be the next Artist you keep on repeat. Having performed at “New Breath” last year and “Imprint” recently, be sure to catch him performing sometime soon. Get familiar with “I Get Lonely Too” with Sara Bloom, “Slow Whine” with Sara and Jeeby Lyricist, and “We$t Island” below.
Jaz Elise definitely made some noise in 2018. Having made her debut on the scene with the singles “Forever Guide” and “For You“, she has brought a vibe that made everyone rock wherever she goes. From performing at “Jam We A Jam” and being called up by Lila Ike at “Live From KGN”, 2019 will find Jaz everywhere.
