AUTUMN FALLIN’ CONFIRMED FOR MARCH 11 U.S. RELEASE ON BLUE NOTE
DECEMBER 12 HOMECOMING SHOW AT NEW YORK’S MERCURY LOUNGE
“Poignant pen-pictures of young love in Manhattan, rich in lyrical detail and bursting with sweet acoustic melody”
–Q MAGAZINE 4-star “Q Recommends” review
“Think Woody Allen if he were young and female–and could sing”
–THE OBSERVER, 4-star review
“The raw ingredients for Jaymay’s music are simple and familiar – an appealing drawl, a guitar, a hint of violins – the execution is what makes this a special debut album.”
–METRO (UK) 4-star review
Currently touring the UK where Heavenly Recordings has released Autumn Fallin’ to slew of 4-star reviews (see above), Jaymay got her start at a NYC open mic night in 2003. Soon after she was invited to play at various Lower East Side venues such as Pianos, Mercury Lounge and her much buzzed about (and oversold) Living Room Residency, which moved Gothamist to gush “Girls with Guitars are everywhere in this city, but this one –like a siren–was pulling people into this room and leaving them silent, speechless even. Shocked and lulled into a stupor.”
Jaymay eschewed the inevitable and numerous label offers that came in the wake of these shows, opting to self-release the beautiful Sea Green See Blue EP, which scored an “indie spotlight” on iTunes and frequent rotation on Los Angeles’ influential KCRW). She then began work on Autumn Fallin, a song cycle that vividly details the story of a New York City relationship gone south for the Winter.
Ultimately, EMI made her an offer she creatively couldn’t refuse, resulting in perfect homes at Heavenly Records in the UK and Blue Note here in the states.
Since then, Jaymay (born Jamie Kristine Seerman) has taken up residence in London, touring Europe and the UK with the likes of Bright Eyes, Jose Gonzales and in coming weeks Caribou and Okkervil River.
She will be returning to New York to round out her year with a one-off homecoming show at the Mercury Lounge December 12th at 7pm.
