Pelagic Records sign JAYE JAYLE

Louisville, Kentucky-based musician and artist Evan Patterson never planned for @jayejayle to blossom from a stripped-down solo project into the otherworldly, full-band sonic experience that it is today.⁠

In the beginning, the songs were short and lighthearted, written on acoustic guitar with no intention of performing publicly or even releasing the music. Yet, within a year JAYE JAYLE had released a string of limited-edition seven-inch records and recorded a full-length album, House Cricks, with a complete backing band.⁠

After a North American tour in 2016 with alt-country originators FREAKWATER and then another tour of the States with avant-garde metal band @sumacbandofficial, JAYE JAYLE found themselves sharing stages with artists from a plethora of musical genres. Shortly thereafter, JAYE JAYLE toured Europe for the first time and joined EMMA RUTH RUNDLE’s band as full-time members. By the second full-length, No Trail, the band was diving deeper into the abyss of minimalism and experimental art rock while working with David Lynch’s longtime sound engineer Dean Hurley, who produced and mixed the album.⁠

In 2018 and 2019 Evan performed over 400 shows across North America and Europe, not only with JAYE JAYLE but also fronting his longtime group @youngwidowsband, as well as being the touring and recording guitarist for @emmaruthrundle. The constant traveling inspired Evan to compose an entirely electronic album on his phone while on tour, JAYE JAYLE’s third full-length, Prisyn, and work with Ben Chisholm of @cchelseawwolfe as the album’s producer.⁠

In 2023, JAYE JAYLE will be back on tour to support their most devastatingly beautiful work to date, their soon-to-be-announced fourth album.
