Jaz Elise releases “Good Over Evil” from her forthcoming debut EP The Golden Hour, available March 5, 2021 via In.Digg.Nation Collective/Six Course Music/RCA Records. The singer practices a positive mindset in order to execute her vision on this triumphant song produced by Natural High and Protoje. “Good Over Evil” stands out as a salute to her Jamaican roots and lays the foundation for her EP.
“I’ve had to be strong like many people that look like me. The song is just a note to keep going and remain focused no matter what. At the core, it says all things lead with good intentions, burn evil and to speak life,” Jaz says about the single.
Jaz Elise is the newest member of In.Digg.Nation Collective’s roster, the record label and management company founded by Grammy-nominated artist Protoje. She joins Lila Iké, Sevana and Protoje in the label’s joint venture with Six Course Music and RCA Records. In.Digg.Nation Collective has been lauded as “Jamaica’s new reggae empire” (Uproxx) and the contingent “pushing Jamaica’s sound forward” (NYLON).
Jaz Elise embodies this contemporary sound of the island on her upcoming body of work, The Golden Hour. The 7-track EP is an ethereal blend of reggae-infused R&B with jazz undertones. She delivers breezy confident melodies on the self-loving opener “Elevated,” the instantly contagious anthem “Radio” and her recently released hit “Fresh & Clean” feat. Govana. The latter part of the EP is filled with slow burns, allowing her soft sultry vocals and honest songwriting to float over spacious and thoughtful instrumentation. “After 3” is a cosmic exchange between her and rising singer Mortimer, and “Breathe” soothes the soul over light jazz and dub grooves. The EP’s infectious mix of beats are composed by a variety of In.Digg.Nation Collective’s go-to producers including IzyBeats, Natural High, J.L.L., iotosh, Ziah and Protoje.
