Rooted in songwriting, Jayme Ivison delivers a rustic honesty with ambience, soaring vocals, and edgy pop dynamics. Seemingly competing qualities - visceral and intellectual, complex and raw - enveloped in intricate layers and unexpected changes throughout, make Jayme Ivison’s new release Move Like Music a fresh yet familiar sound. Ivison's vocals travel from the haunting falsetto of Stay Up, to a deep candor and belt-it-out freedom on Saved, to the hook-laden cadence of the title track.
As a prolific songwriter, Jayme Ivison embraces genre strengths, while boldly stretching boundaries to serve listeners with an accessible path to truly unique experiences. His evocative writing and production style have been a natural fit for film, including the recent placement of his works Ni Su Nave and Like A Dog in the new theatrical release from Henry Alex Rubin, Disconnect (Jason Bateman, Alexander Skarsgard, Paula Patton). On the current EP release, Ivison's arrangements paint an aural landscape that carefully unfolds to every emotional edge - effortless euphoria to weighty, thought-provoking stillness.
While warm 70s era drum sounds groove heavily in Cope, tracks like Yours Truly and Hold on to Me provoke powerful questions of love, faith, waiting, and wanting – a hopeful despondence that is reassuring, excruciating, and beautiful. Move Like Music is an album that quickly clears your agenda, allowing you to freely give in to absolute immersion, stop the world for a bit, and just glide.
