Let Jay Q - The Soulful Serenader "Take You There"
From One Jam Music comes a new stirring reggae single from The Soulful Serenader better known as JayQ. In "Take You There," JayQ sings of a woman who suffered a broken heart and is reluctant to love again because she is afraid of getting hurt. He implores her, “Let me take you to a place where love is pure and true, where broken hearts are made like new and cynics change their point of view.”
The single produced by famed producer Drezion for One Jam Music, and co-written by JayQ is now available on all major digital outlets. The video for "Take You There" was recently filmed in Montego Bay, Jamaica and will be released in the coming weeks.
JayQ recently received modest international success with his single "Sunshine In The Rain" on the hit rhythm "Harder Than Hard" which boasted singles from Beenie Man, Bounty Killer, Agent Sasco, Laden, and Abby Dallas.
JayQ - Born Llyod Nelson on the beautiful island of Jamaica, the versatile dancehall and reggae artist later adopted the moniker of JayQ. Although he developed a passion for singing at an early age, his career didn't fully bloom until he became a young adult. Influenced by the likes of Beres Hammond, John Legend and R.Kelly, JayQ's love of all music genres is self apparent in his deliveries.
Blending reggae and R&B, JayQ's smooth voice and strong vocals have been compared to those of Richie Stephens and contemporary R&B star Miguel.
Among his numerous accolades, JayQ lists participating in Digicel Rising Stars and taking the main stage at the 2008 Jamaica Jazz & Blues Festival after winning a local talent show as two of the most memorable. Whatever the occasion, JayQ is all about positively impacting his audience, as he states, "Whenever I sing and I am able to make people clap and scream and tell me that I made a positive impact on their day is a memorable performance for me. Just seeing smiles from my audience makes me feel really appreciated and inspires me to want to do more with the talent that God has blessed me."
