+ There's a style to the music.
+ There's a fashion to the words.

+ There's a seduction in the sound of Jay West, but what makes it provocative is all within the details.

+ The Jay West Perspective is romantic. The Jay West Aesthetic is tailored. The Jay West agenda is to INSPIRE. “Southern California’s Newest Buzzworthy Artist” is preparing a follow-up to the cult classic mixtape, “Drugs+Candy”. The table is set.

+ Say Grace.

Introducing Graham Knox...

Alex Goose’s Faberge Egg.

I met Graham on the rooftop of a boutique hotel in Atlanta in August. We shared the stage in the show that night, not concurrently but you know what I mean. It was also my first time hearing her music. What a nice introduction?! Since meeting Graham this summer, we’ve become friends and we’ve been able to go back and forth on ideas. She’s a gem. It doesn’t hurt that she’s gorgeous but the most glowing thing about Graham is her perspective. I mean her songwriting is awesome! Her ability to playfully walk a line between innocent optimism and grown-ass wit is uncanny (Listen to her lead single “Dollar” and then play her response on Cee-Lo’s “Fuck You” record, its crazy). She balances it all being being cheeky and subtly sexy.

Visit her site now to buy + listen + watch the Goose-Produced record, “DOLLAR”.

Jay West: "STICKS + STONES" video

Jay West- Sticks + Stones from philthegod. on Vimeo.

Jay West
"Sticks + Stones"
Download: DRUGS + CANDY Mixtape LP
Dir: Phil The God

Initially, I never imagined shooting a video for "Sticks + Stones" but after Phil heard the record, he took the reigns and discussed what his vison was for it. After toiling over concepts and images, we decided that the goal was to do something as provocative and jarring as the lyrics to the song. Drugs + Candy came out at the beginning of summer but the ideas and visuals felt cold. We wanted it to stick with the viewer. So we dug deep and created a world --a visual landscape -- that we could draw the viewers into. Its grim. Being so, what better time to release than the month of October. The start to the Fall.

ALSO: This will be the last video for DRUGS+CANDY.

Silly Lovers

I write a lot of songs. A lot of songs never get used. I started writing this to a stolen melody and I would have to find the right voice to sing it. Maybe we can use it one day for a concert. I don't know. I don't have it all figured out.

And when i leave, i’m gon’ take you with me
You’ll never bear their bitter whispers again
Cuz when i leave i’m gon' take you with me.
So say goodbye to your friends

Silly lovers

We’ll wave goodbye as we pass

Silly lovers

And when i leave i’m gon’ take you with me
Pack all your biggest dreams, we’re never coming back
And when i leave i’m gon take you with me
We’ll never argue again

Silly lovers

We’ll wave goodbye to our past
