"Jay Fleming Releases powerful new single"

Oregon’s Jay Fleming has been perfecting his craft in barrooms across the United States for years, developing a voice that can silence even the rowdiest crowds with just one note. Informed by a century’s worth of outlaw country, earthbound blues, and gritty rock’n’roll, he is now releasing his first original single, ‘Beat The Drum.’

Fleming immediately evokes the old south, describing a journey through Vicksburg and Atlanta with “the devil at the wheel.”
The intensity of the subject matter fits his huge voice perfectly, as he delivers a convincing performance addressing the darkness and lust for violence that sleeps in the heart of man.

Despite its modern production, ’Beat The Drum’ is a song that sounds as though it could have been written anytime in the past 200 years. Addressing America’s abandonment of its working class, Fleming sings “They sold our birthright overseas and told us that we won.”

Through all his frustration, Fleming builds the song to a cathartic chorus, bringing back its message of redemption. It is a song that gets to the core of the American spirit and its constant search for salvation. - XTTRAWAVE
