“Solomon Jaye is AWEsome!”
-Marc Broussard, Island Records
Solomon Jaye taps into “high energy soul” with his unique fusion of original and classic R&B / Soul music, astonishing acrobatics, and his trademarked ElektroTap dancing which brings the classic art of tap dance into the 21st century. Jaye is an accomplished singer, songwriter, guitarist, dancer and acrobat. He delivers vocals reminiscent of Marvin Gaye and Bruno Mars with movement that hints of James Brown and Micheal Jackson. Jaye was also a founding member of the international vocal group, 'The Edge Effect'. He is a featured songwriter and performer on the Grammy considered album, 'Alphabet Radio’.
“Written by Solomon Jaye, “Monsters” is a smooth-groovin’ duet between Jaye and singer / stage actress, Shoshana Bean. Lyrically similar to a recent hit of a similar name by Eminem and Rihanna, I’m not sure which is the “chicken” or the “egg.” However, Jaye’s is an overall better written and more enjoyable song.”
Houston, Texas native, Solomon Jaye studied Voice as a Bachelor of Musical Theatre at Oklahoma City University. Jaye trained as a tap dancer under Heather Cornell (Director of the Manhattan Tap Ensemble), and the late Robert L. Reed (Founder of the annual Robert Reed St. Louis Tap Festival).
“Ordinary Man is a very creative combination of soulful music for every occasion... Ordinary Man keeps you engaged by changing up the content and style... The arrangement is perfect and the vocals really highlight the instrumentation.”
