Take a Journey with Jay Ammo in His EP, “Red”

Take a Journey with Jay Ammo in His EP, “Red”

In Red, Jay Ammo delivers everything that we love about R&B - smooth, honest, and atmospheric - with his own experimental flair. With each track, listeners are invited to embark on a cathartic journey, navigating love and loss while finding solace in the lessons learned along the way. 

Give Red a listen here.

Ammo comes out of the gate with raw and emotional lyrics in "Drunk (Interlude)", with his soulful vocals and stripped-back acoustic guitar fusing seamlessly for a fresh sound that can be traced back to his Clarksville roots. In the second track, "Parachute", we can feel the internal strife in the verses pleading for requited love, a nostalgic theme in R&B. Jay brings us to an emotional apex with the irresistible beat weaved through "Counting my days", and "The Blues" melds violin and melodic keys for a dramatic and old-school sound. 

Red takes listeners on a journey that parallels the emotional journey that many go through during heartbreak or the grieving process more broadly. The final track, "Still Love", provides a resolution to the raw and emotional, leaving listeners with hope. Ammo told us that he hopes from Red, people can be reminded there is always a better day “waiting to happen”. 

Ammo is a self-proclaimed connector and he wants his music to do just that: through his musical journey, he hopes that Red will help him to share his story with many. Viewing music as “our universal code,” Ammo delivered a testament to the many stages of love and loss that is equally as lyrically strong as it is emotionally authentic.
