Biography

Within the panorama of the El Paso music scene, Jayden's Playground is a rare diamond. No other band sounds like them or does music in a similar style. Female fronted, Trip-hop, alternative, ambient, indie, and experimental are the terms used to describe this trio's special sound. From the warm vibrations of the cello, the sweet keys of the piano, a guitar that executes a diverse sonance, jazzy and soulful vocals influenced by many genres from country to rock and the heavy rock drumming that grounds the band. It’s a New York style of modern rock jazz, something you would find if you walked into a hip N.Y. lounge at 3 am. Their uniqueness offers them the luxury to be able to fit perfectly in a small coffeehouse or crank up the sound to play for a stadium crowd.

The trio is comprised of: Jamie Hernandez on vocals and keyboards/cello, Saul Ibarquen on drums, and Luis Ortega on guitar. Each individual solidly lends their talents to create the musical landscape that is Jayden's Playground. Hernandez' heart wrenching vocals take center stage. Ibarquen's drumming is the driving force that sets the pace and intensifies the passion of the music, a symphonic dance and duel with Hernandez' keyboards and vocals. Guitarist Luis Ortega, plays the jazz chord rhythms, doubling the sound of Hernandez' keyboard playing. Seeing the band live you will be impressed with the music coming from this trio. Jayden's Playground is a live band who thrives on playing for a crowd.

Each of our songs are written from all 3 of our life experiences, but are told through Jayden (our own fictional character) living those experiences. The listener will be able to identify him/herself as Jayden. Jayden’s “Playground” is where she finds serenity and peace and where she finds that is through music…that is her playground.

Lyrics

Heart Invasion

Written By: Jamie Hernandez

Since the day you met me
I've lived to see
Since the day you let me inside
Your history

Chorus
I have fallen
Fallen in love again
So catch me
Catch me when I fall

Since the day you met me
The music played
Since the day I gave you my heart
To invade

Chorus
I have fallen
Fallen in love again
So catch me
Catch me when I fall

I have fallen
Fallen in love again
So catch me
Catch me when I fall

Bridge

Chorus
I have fallen
Fallen in love again
So catch me
Catch me when I fall

I have fallen fallen fallen in love again
So catch me catch me catch me when I fall

Josephine

Written By: Jamie Hernandez


Today is your day

Same time same place

Red roses never make a sound

When he lays them on the ground

Chorus

Time that’s lost is

Time that’s still

No one could ever know

How he feels

Nothing more grows in between

When he’s without his

He’s without his Josephine.

One scent brings a memory of their love

And every color that surrounds him

Paints a melody she used to sing

Dance with me baby

Please don’t cry

We’ll always have each other

This won’t be our last goodbye

He always brought red roses when she had enough

And as the casket closes it will be red he’ll dream of

Chorus

Time that’s lost is

Time that’s still

No one could ever know

How he feels

Nothing more grows in between

When he’s without his

He’s without his Josephine.
