JES - Disconnect
JES - Disconnect
This is it, this is now. Cause this is all, you can have it. If you just listen to the soul, you become. Cause Im crying out, to every corner of the Earth. Why cant we live as one? In Ohm. JES; Singer, Songwriter, Producer, Artist. DISCONNECT, the debut solo album.
One could call it a debut, but in reality it is a logical progression for her. Born and raised in New York City, Jes realized at a young age that singing was her passion. While enrolled in art school, her truly unique vocal style, and range was discovered, and she quickly progressed to working in professional situations. All the while she continued to write and work in friends studios, always making music. While working at a popular recording studio in L.A., JES met Mike Olson, and the two formed Gaurdians of the Earth, which was a hit on the very popular Mp3.com, with songs like Starchildren and One Moon Circling.
"Starchildren" was released on Paul VanDyks The Politics Of Dancing series, and through hearing that, Jes began collaborating with more DJ's like D:fuse and Deepsky, producing tracks like "Living The Dream" and "Ghost" and many others. Ultimately this lead to the collaboration with G&D to form Motorcycle, producing the Billboard..1 Dance Hit "As The Rush Comes". Now JES comes full circle, putting a different twist on some of her favorites, while continuing to write new songs to bring you DISCONNECT, her debut solo artist album. By tapping into her rock roots, and mashing it with the big dance grooves she is known for we bring you this infectious new style we call Roctronica.
