Description

The Quartet project Jay set out to create was documenting his last 10 years experiences and feelings. He was brought up as a stiff upper lipped Brit, then realised that trying to suppress emotions doesn't really work, so cathartically explored the light and shade. The resulting album explored some dark times but it is interspersed with joy and reflection. Some of the darker songs explore bitter sadness, resent and tracks like 'The Fall' and 'Ghost in the Mirror' show the descent into spiraling negativity, whereas 'Smiles' and 'Stronger than you think' reflect on the beauty of life and the joy that fills your soul and makes you dance around the kitchen.
