Jay Elle - Take a Holiday

"Take a Holiday" starts with a slide guitar that draws you in like rays of sunshine. The inviting and warm sound to Jay Elle's "Take a Holiday" is just the beginning. After the slide guitar welcomes you in, the door opens to a full island-pop groove that sounds like a breath of fresh tropical air. Not since Jimmy Buffet has a song about unwinding and leaving your cares behind felt this good to the ears.

"Need a break to clear up my mind. Need a break from the daily grind. Sipping cocktails by the pool, while the rest of the world acts a fool."

Jay Elle is a songwriter and performer who pays attention; every nuance and detail of the song's fabric has been attended to and the end result is masterful. The entire production is very tasteful yielding an award-winning, radio-ready sound that simply washes over you like a holiday at the beach. You will even hear a carefree whistling of the tune that adds to the positive vibe.

Jay Elle's vocals have an irresistible pop pureness on "Take a Holiday." His voice is down to earth and very clear as he expresses the laid-back lyrics.

Jay Elle's vocal performance speaks to us with a positive, universal appeal that flows like an easy river; he is so pleasant on the ears that his singing washes away your worries and takes you on a holiday.

"Why don't we take off and leave all this behind. Find a nice place for us to unwind. Take a holiday. Oh, take a holiday."

When a song makes you forget about time, when it takes you away from life's worries and troubles, and brings you to a place that literally relaxes the muscles in your body, eases your mind from the daily grind, and makes you smile - that is more than a good pop song or a great melody - that is art because it takes an artist to compose music that takes you away to a better place and kindles your imagination.
