ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Just when we think the music industry is a wrap with its cookie cutter artists and template tracks and lyrics, something new blooms and this is certainly refreshing. Influenced by an impressive league of writers and performers, Jay Arseno (Jonathan Adam) dares to push the envelope through bypassing his sleeve and laying his heart on the page. Jay is no stranger to the stage, beginning his career as a singer early on in church choirs and musical theatre in his native Baton Rouge, LA. He is passionate about true artistic and emotional expression, so it is no surprise that Jay ventured out into writing and singing his own pop and rock songs. It is clear Jay learned from the best, citing Duncan Sheik, Better Than Ezra, Vertical Horizon and Matchbox 20 as songwriting influences. Their earnest lyricism is apparent in his writing process, one where he chooses to listen critically to the music to hear its voice and then add words that reflect what both Jay and the music have to say. His favorite original tune from his upcoming second album, “Hero”, is a result of that process, a synergy found between music and lyrics. The song speaks to the natural human need for salvation, be it from a situation or ourselves. In addition to performing and writing his own songs, Jay truly appreciates collaborating with other songwriters and producers. He recently worked with platinum hit maker Troy “Radio” Johnson. Working with Radio and others like him was a rewarding experience because Jay believes sharing ideas with great writers makes great music but also helps the individual writer grow. When asked what he wants his fans to know about him most, his response is, “I’m a real person. I write from my heart and I want that to come across. I’m not the bubble gum pop trend and I want to make a mark on the world.” There is no doubt that given the chance, Jay Arseno (Jonathan Adam) will make such a mark and it will be a welcomed return to real music.

Outstanding Pop/Rock CD Filled with Catchy Tunes
“Face In Your Crowd” is the excellent pop rock debut from Texas singer/songwriter Jonathan Adam. Adam (stage name of Jay Arseno) delivers a great vocal performance reminiscent of many of his influences, including Better Than Ezra and Vertical Horizon, and the entire album features outstanding vocal layering and harmonies. His songs have a solid rock foundation with great guitar riffs and solid beats, and Adam fuses it nicely with great pop elements, including electronica keyboards, whistles, flute solos, and Adam’s stellar pop vocal performance. The songs themselves are melodic and catchy, heartfelt and real, and have great lyrics about love and life, often in rhyming verse. “Face In Your Crowd” is well-produced and sounds clean and professional with a great balance of vocals and instruments. “15 Minutes” is a fast-paced arrangement with matching frantic electronic drums and lyrics about the proverbial fifteen minutes of fame. “Cinematic Tragedy” has catchy and metaphorical lyrics and excellent musical transitions with electronica elements. “Face In Your Crowd” is truly an impressive debut from Jonathan Adam with its original pop rock arrangements, electronica elements, and powerful vocals. Fans of pop rock with a great modern rock foundation should definitely pick this one up.
