Getting ready to release a 5 song EP on iTunes.



With a bass guitar in hand, singer-songwriter Emily Jaye takes a unique lead position fronting a powerful four piece band. Influenced by Paramore, The Killers, Garbage and Sheryl Crow, Emily’s sound is distinct vocally and lyrically - expressing her belief that “confidence is the sexiest thing you can wear.”

Growing up in Fort Collins, Colorado, Emily moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in music. She worked three jobs to put herself through school, graduating from USC with a business degree in music. Through her studies Emily learned about the odds of making it as an artist, but ever determined forged ahead anyway.

Within four months of picking up the guitar she started playing at open mic nights and coffeehouses around Los Angeles, singing her own material. Playing then in a folk/rock style it wasn’t until Emily picked up a bass guitar and started writing more up-tempo rock songs that everything really clicked. “I started out doing the folk/acoustic thing, but it didn't quite fit. I'm kinda feisty and sassy, and I found myself toning down my lyrics to be more relatable for the folk singer-songwriter audience,” states Emily. Defying those earlier doomsday career forecasts Emily landed an ad campaign in 2008 with Fruit of the Loom's subsidiary company "Vassarette.” Emily modeled the company's new product line, sang the campaign’s theme song "Are You Ready” and secured a Gibson bass guitar endorsement. Her ads can be seen in entertainment publications and women's magazines nationwide, throughout 2009. She also did a live performance of the song on The Style Network's new reality show, Running In Heels.

Emily is also currently working in the studio on a solo CD with producer/guitarist Eric Fraley set for a late summer/early fall release.
