+ 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.

The Foil Curtain

"Pae White is the artist responsible for the best damn stage curtain of any damn opera house in the whole damn world. Hot damn. For the main stage curtain of the Oslo Opera House, the L.A.-based artist scanned images of crumpled aluminum foil and sent the scans through a computer numerically-controlled loom which transformed the pixels into a massive tapestry of cotton, wool, and polyester. Called “Metafoil”, the curtain takes an old world staple and gives it a stunning digital twist..."READ MORE >

BB Notes: The Ultimate

>Have you seen Black Swan? That is essentially the tale of The Artist's Struggle. When you are so self-involved that you pick yourself apart to the point of pain. When you are so self aware that you deal with a grave sense of narcissism juxtaposed with intense self-loathing...And you gotta pray that serenity prayer, "Lord grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change, The strength to change the things I can, And the wisdom to know the difference". As an artist, there is a headspace that you enter where you deal with yourself on such a deep level that you get sick of yourself at times. There are days that I get sick of my own voice. I don't wanna hear myself think! Let alone hear another jay west record. I get into myself because as a solo artist I am the CEO of jay west incorporated. It takes accountability. I was a terrible boyfriend but as an ex-boyfriend I was her best friend. Some of us are drug users. Some of us are sex addicts. But that same sex addict might be an amazing lover. These are my highs and lows. My pluses and minuses. My drugs and candy.

>I try to make music for life, for your days. I try to make music for movies. I make music for moments. I make music for memories. From my memories and For your memories. You know...

>Because, ultimately, what is our life? What is history? What are photographs? Since we're here and we all are in this time what are we doing with it? We all spend the the time. We never get it back. We all spending it. The question is what did you buy. I'm investing in inspiration. That is my last will and testament. The work I've done to inspire.
