Biography

Many artists struggle to discover their identity in music, laboriously trying different methods of delivery and styles, to help them define who they are as an artist. Meanwhile other artists emerge brimming with full command of their craft and musical landscape. Jason “Da Publicʼs Eye” Stanley is unyieldingly in the second category. Da Publicʼs Eye is an eccentric artist that represents the next wave of musical fusion transcending various genres, from hip-hop to funk. His latest mixtape, Secret Faneyesee, is a shining example of his ability to create music that resonates in a familiar way while showcasing his own lane of creativity as well as sets him apart as an artist.

A native of Maxton, North Carolina (just outside of Fayetteville) Da Publicʼs Eye came from a musical family. His uncle was a jazz performer and his mother was a singer but he got his real taste in music by working with his older brother, a rapper. “I wanted to impress my brother so I started free styling against older cats and getting my name and face all over. With all the attention I was getting my brother started working with me and teaching me how to perfect my style and learning the game.

Describing his sound as “flowing water that, once it touches you, it nurtures you.” He says listeners are instantly drawn to his music because it speaks to everyone, regardless of who they are. “Itʼs pure hip-hop, soul and straight funk,” he says. Da Publicʼs Eye says his musical influences are vast. “I have been influenced by so many genres of music; everyone from Curtis Mayfield and Jay-Z to Queen and 2Pac.”

Da Publicʼs Eye says his sound is well-thought out and meticulously crafted. He approaches his music like a surgeon approaching a complicated surgery -- choosing just the right tools for the job and targeting his audience with skill, wit and precision. “My style is a combination of lyrics over different beats. I feel the beat and thatʼs what drives me to be my best, to deliver what comes from the heart.”

As his name continues to grow, Da Publicʼs Eye has been featured on VH1ʼs R&B Divas, BET, TV One, Global Grind, USA Today, Eurweb, The Bronners Brothers International Hair Show and Hype Magazine to name a few. In an industry that is forever changing and looking for the next big thing, Da Publicʼs Eye continues to use his raw talent in collaboration with his self taught elements of musical production and videography to enhance his forthcoming projects. When asked about the pivotal moments or highlights of his career he respond- ed “not being able to define a pivotal moment in my career is intentional, because I feel that when you can pinpoint or have reached that point in your career there is so much room for downfall. I donʼt plan on coming down, thatʼs why I strive to reach farther and wider in anything I do.” After performing at the 2015 Bronner Brother International Hair show and rebooking the gig for the fall, there is not doubt that Da Publicʼs Eye is accomplishing that goal.

Da Publicʼs Eye says heʼs definitely looking to make moves on the music scene and beyond. “I am not looking to be the next trendy artist or a one-hit wonder,” he affirms. “My goal is longevity. My goal is to make a mark that allows me to be able to open doors for artists that Iʼm developing so that my style of music and character are respected and inspiring to other artists as well.” 


Lyrics

Don’t Hold Back

Written By: Written by: Floyd Grant & Jason “Da Public’s Eye” Stanley

FG 1st Verse:
I’m about to set it off, the weekends just begin, it feels like forever, just to get it in
Now we in the club we rocking, popping bottles and shot calling, this girl came over to me
She said come and dance with her

B Hook:
I, I love it so much, that I’ll never let you go, about to replace you, I’ll never let you know
I, I want it so bad, that I’ll never let you go, but I need a rain check, cause I’m about to let you go

Hook:
Everybody to my left let me see your hands up one time, Everybody to my right let me see your hands up one time, All the girls in the club let me see your hands up one time, All the guys get a girl let me see you just do it one time, Don’t Hold Back

FG 2nd Verse:
The club is jumping off right, feeling kind of good now, we about to put in work, its bout to go done, now I’m ready for whatever, I got this feeling and I gotta get loose, Girl I gotta get next to you, cause I know that you are digging me to.

B Hook:
I, I love it so much, that I’ll never let you go, about to replace you, I’ll never let you know
I, I want it so bad, that I’ll never let you go, but I need a rain check, cause I’m about to let you go

Hook:
Everybody to my left let me see your hands up one time, Everybody to my right let me see your hands up one time, All the girls in the club let me see your hands up one time, All the guys get a girl let me see you just do it one time, Don’t Hold Back

DPE Verse:
Hey baby don’t you hold back, you see this money in my hand, I can’t fold that and the way you throw it back, I gotta spending limit but I can’t control that, you got a hold on me, don’t let it slip away, and we done bought the bottles so baby you can sip away, where you wanna go, we can take a trip today, Got an app in my phone book a flight and pay… I, I love it. and you know how it feels when you deal with Da Public’s Eye, and aint no reason not to try but the hating from these guys maybe something they despise, I know a lot of people pray for my demise, they digging ditches for me but they see me rise, so its whatever they know that my life is better, and I’m gone keep getting cheddar, and my name gonna live forever come on.

Hook:
Everybody to my left let me see your hands up one time, Everybody to my right let me see your hands up one time, All the girls in the club let me see your hands up one time, All the guys get a girl let me see you just do it one time, Don’t Hold Back
