Malaysian-raised, New York-based JAIE is a self-made solo artiste who produces the entirety of her discography from scratch to finish. With a dedication to old-school soul and contemporary digital beats, JAIE is a bedroom-singer/songwriter/producer that transforms the sonic landscape of her dorm walls into deep R&B sounds. Her background in IT drives musical passion that works hand-in-hand with technology’s continuing evolution. As JAIE believes, ” I came from the Soundcloud world of music makers, and have connected with people from all over the world, so I don’t think there is any real limitation we face in this current technological state when it comes to creating content.”
Her first single, ‘honest oceans’, is a sultry but pulsing love-letter about finding sanctuary in another person during difficult times. Particularly for JAIE, the story of the song is an escape from her days in the bustling metropolis of New York.
The debut is accompanied by a video which features an interpretative dance, performed and choreographed by Rutgers’ dance major, Hui Yi. The video is a must-see that highlights JAIE’s fluid vocals and soundscapes. The cover art is a special contribution by New York-based artist, Stephanie Winarto. ‘honest oceans’ is the first taste of JAIE’s EP and today it makes its way to the Asian Pop Radio 24/7 radio stream.
