Rasha Jay’s ‘Red Coat’ is the blues based alt-rock single that is a must when soundtracking your weekend

From small town Owings, Maryland Rasha Jay’s music is a storm of blues based alt-rock fueled with emotional vocals, powerful rock instrumentals and atmospheric beats and this is illustrated best in her new single  Red Coat. 

Lyrically the song is about protecting yourself from love and the  heavy bass, strong guitar riffs and raw soulful vocals mirror the dark, murky and conflicted notions that come with the harder side of love. With her forthcoming EP High Dive to be released later this year, Rasha Jay comments that the EP will be a continuation of this exploration into love and the tangled mess of relating to each other –  the title ‘High Dive’ referring to the times when it is best to dive in or jump out and the audience that is always there waiting to see what happens.

Taking influence from musical mavericks such as Prince and rock royalty like Foo Fighters, Rasha Jay creates innovative music that bulges real honesty and daring genre-spanning sounds.

Nina Jones with new style single ‘Purple Rain’

Based in Newport, South Wales, Nina Jones is the latest vocal jewel from a country which boasts a stellar musical heritage. At just 17 years old, hers is a voice which already holds the maturity and depth of singers well beyond her years.

Her new single is a cover version of the iconic Prince track ‘Purple Rain’ – one of the songs that saw Prince become a household name in the 1980s. Nina Jones is hoping her version of the song may go some way to doing the same for her with its UK release, bringing the track back to basics to showcase her superb vocals.

The languid, artistic video is available online now, and you can see it below:
