ABOUT

Kinda created my own sound. Mix of alt rock, alternative pop, Caribbean sounds, some indie-ish vibes...whatever's clever. Sometimes catchy, sometimes music to get folks right in the feels. I know it sounds wacked out, but it's actually cohesive and really, really fun.

Have been producing and playing everything myself up until now. Looking to put together a band. Hit me up at jaymez [dot] d [dot] strong at gee-mail [dot] com (spelled the normal way of course).
