“I Lived” music video out today!

The first music video for a song from my brand new CD, “The Ride” is out today! It is for the song, “I Lived”. With the song and video, I wanted to express how life is a personal journey each of us takes, and no matter how things turn out along the way (whether your dreams are fulfilled or not), it is something to be celebrated. I did the animation myself. This is the first of several animated and non-animated music videos I intend to release for songs from “The Ride”. Enjoy and please share it!

TheRideOUTTODAY

My new CD, ‘The Ride” is out today! I’m so excited to finally release this collection of songs, as making them has been a true labor of love. These 11 songs are a combination of my personal brand of trip-hop, electronic dance and soulful ballads, all set against modern day pop influenced arrangements. “The RIde” is available for purchase (physical CD) and/or download at the following sites: iTunes, CD Baby and Amazon, as well as other online music sites. Please give a listen, and if you purchase it, PLEASE leave a review – especially on iTunes and/or Amazon. It will definitely help support me and my music.

I have completed a few music videos for songs from “The RIde”, and am in the process of completing a couple more. To stay on top of them, you can subscribe to my YouTube Channel here: http://www.youtube.com/user/theJayJacobson/ The first video that will be released is for the song “I Lived”, and it will be out on Monday, October 20th.

A thank you to all my fans, friends and family for your continued support. Please leave me a comment or drop me a line and let me know what you think of “The Ride”! Enjoy!

“The RIde” has been getting many rave reviews! Some excerpts:

“Having a well layered background akin to a large act like Coldplay… incredibly radio friendly and has a very large potential for listener reach. I heard a voice that loves not only theatrical novelty, but spreading happiness as well. A warm and influential record, listening should evoke a high risk of encountering gentle tones, warm vibes, and desire to hit repeat.” – HyPursuit

“Jay Jacobson makes a memorable impression… There are classical influences as well as soaring vocals. He has an amazing tenor voice that glides between melodies. All the piano parts are beautifully rendered that they sound magical… uplifting… artfully crafted… You better pick this recording and the rest of his albums because I am sure you will love his kind of music!” – Sphere Music

“Jay Jacobson does an awesome job in the vocals department, hitting such high notes that I could only imagine hitting in my lifetime.” – Indigo Indie

“…bouncy-ness of beats that keeps the music fresh and alive… Jay Jacobson has the talent and style that is indeed worth that listen, because it jumps at you each time you hear it.” – Nataliez World
