REVIEWS FOR "THE RIDE"

"Jay has one of the most distinctive voices in pop music today….demonstrates a uniquely focused and sincere take on what it is to be a singer and a songwriter in the 21st century. His voice and music is at once as endearing, as it is effective in communicating pure, honest emotion!"

"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."

"5 STARS! From the colorfully layered strings on the opening track, “I Need A Change” to the intimate narrative of “I Lived”, a track which Jay describes as, “one of the most personal songs I’ve written,” through to other standouts like, “With Our Love”, “In The Blue”, “Maybe One Day”, “Ghosting” and “Might As Well Sing And Dance Together”, it’s hard to narrow it down to which song is the best, since every song is great in its own way; resulting in a near perfect pop album.."

"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!"

"During this month, Jay Jacobson released his 5th studio effort “The Ride”. This is an incredible album that was so much better than I expected. Jay has one of the most distinctive voices in pop music today. This is definitely the best work that he has ever done, and surpasses his previous albums by a mile, and that’s saying something! First and foremost, this album shows off Jay’s voice, which is pure, emotive and with an unbelievable range. When you listen to him across the 11 tracks on the album, you can just sense the passion, tenderness, inspiriting intensity. It is ridiculous that I’m even trying to describe this. You just need to hear it to believe it."
