 Vancouver, British Columbia, CAN
BandJazzFunk

My music is a cross between Funk, Jazz and Blues with a bit of an edge. Think Etta James meets Billy Holiday meets Robert Cray meets David Bowie with a bit of Tower of Power thrown in! Strange and wonderful! I have been called a female James Brown, but it's more than that.

Biography

There are aspects of Blues, Funk, Jazz and heavy RB in her music to give the feel of old school Funk on a bus that runs smack into today.

She has a stage presence that is nothing less than spectacular and has more balls than a monastery. With many years of live performances, Jayleen has played in almost every city in Canada and in many countries around the world. With this amazing line-up of some of Canada's top musicians, she looks forward to many more years of touring and entertaining people of all ages and backgrounds as her music touches all!

Lyrics

Summer Rain

Written By: Jayleen Stonehouse

In the summer rain I can feel the pain I can hear your voice I can see your poise even though you're nowhere near.

The rain tries to wash me clean cleanse my waking dream painfully it seems that you're trapped in my tears

Memories haunt my mind I fall back in time days of kisses past taste too sweet to last all at once I'm filled with fear.

Oh how to let you go never really know answers from within does love ever win I need you here

I love I love I love I love I love I love I love I love I love I love you yes it's true
I love I love I love I love I love I love I love I love I love I love you oh

Pain does fade with time feelings fall behind distance heals the heart make a fresh new start just to see the sun

No matter what I say how I hide away it's too plain to see that you'll always be that special one.

Memories haunt my mind with tears that fall with pain like rain all the time.
