Jaymes Young will assure you that he's a "songwriter before a singer and performer." That wise and self-aware summation cuts to the core of who the Seattle-born and Los Angeles-based musician/poet really is. He still spends countless hours holed up in his bedroom carefully piecing together compositions, penning lyrics, and exploring sounds. His musical wanderlust yields a sound steeped in pop palatability, dusky cinematic electronics, and stark, stirring instrumentation. He sharpens that signature style on his 2017 full-length debut, Feel Something (Atlantic Records).
