๐ŸŽถAlex Jay

Stephy Says ๐Ÿ’‹ meet Alex Jay, the angelic voice behind my favorite covers & musical genius behind his original musical art.

I began following Alex Jay on Twitter after coming across a video of him playing the guitar in the most melodic rhythm & singing with the most pure voice (Don’t believe me? Take a listen here).

His love for singing is apparent by the passion in his vocals. If you were to ask me what his music is like, I would use the words: refined, distinctive, & invoking. His voice is soothing & has a way of creating emotions, jarring feelings, & reviving life. It grasps your attention the moment he opens his mouth.

Normally, I am a reader, however his music & voice does for me what a good book does; it impacts me. As a listener, it affects me in unanticipated & unmeasured ways. It echos long after the music has come to an end.

The rhythm & tone he creates is distinctive & unique to him. His voice becomes an art of storytelling & causes you to reminisce about a particular moment. Not only do you reminisce about the moment, his voice seems to place you in that exact place. He sings in a way that makes you remember the moment, the feeling you had when the moment occurred, & brings it to the present.

His music sends sweet vibrations to the core of you heart & soul. His style of singing is intimate, inviting, & he puts you at ease. Personally, his voice has a way of calming my anxiety, enough to keep me grounded.

He has a sound that will transport you to your own world. Each song, whether it be a cover or an originally composed work or art, is written & sung with passion & heart wrenching emotion. His passion transmits to his listeners. Each rift & run that he flawlessly completes resounds within his listeners.

One of his goals & desires is to appear on the Ellen Degeneres Show–๐Ÿšจ๐Ÿšจcomplete this form to request him as a guest. ๐Ÿšจ๐Ÿšจ

Stephy Says ๐Ÿ’‹ I personally won’t stop tweeting, retweeting, or completing request forms until the world knows the starโญ๏ธ he truly is!

๐ŸคชThe Weirdo : R.A.W.E

Stephy Says ๐Ÿ’‹ I first stumbled across Devvon Terrell some years ago on Facebook recording covers (which I’ll admit, I enjoyed more than the artist version). I instantly became a fan & began saving all of his videos, liking his page, & following him on Facebook. During this time, he was known as the Living Weirdo. That name stood out to me, partially because of the logo & the other part was because it was relatable. He made being a weirdo kind of cool, something to wear on your chest as an honor.

I became such a crazed fan, that I joined the group Devvon Terrell’s RAWE group. The group is so much more than a group, we are Devvon’s extended weirdo family. Shortly before I joined the group, (July) Facebook sent a notification giving me a badge as a top fan โญ๏ธ.

Here’s why I HAD to write a post on Devvon Terrell: First, he DESERVES this recognition plus so much more than I could ever give him. He worked his way to this spot, & put in the time to build this fan base. I’ve said it before & I’m going to say it again–he’s completely UNDERRATED.

(One of my common questions is, “do you listen to Devvon Terrell?” If the answer is no, I’m sending a link to his music–right that second. If the answer is yes, I insert how amazing he is & they agree.) If you’ve never heard of him– click here & you’ll see he’s a big deal. He’s reinvented himself & his brand–& leveled up.

He & his music brought together fans & supporters of different races, age, & gender. Because of the growing hatred in the world today, this is big because Devvon Terrell has accomplished a common goal–unity. I guess it’s true after all, music is a universal language.

Secondly, he has OVER a million fans, followers, & supporters, but still takes time out of his busy schedule to actually comment & interact with his fans.

**(He’s made my night on a few occasions by liking my tweets & responding to my comments)

When he goes live, he actually reads comments & responds to them by calling names. Not a generic, “thank you” or response, but an actual acknowledgement of you as an individual.

Thirdly, his music (along with himself as artist) is RAWE —Real And Well Evolved. Musically, his sound is unique, but signature. His voice is intoxicating, notable & one you can never forget. When the beat drops, you know he’s going to snap on the mic. You get lost in his music, & his music comes complete with songs to fit any mood you may be feeling. New dimensions in his music are discovered with each subsequent listen as his songs get better with each repeated play. The bar is raised with each song, but he continues to outdo himself. The combination of dope songs & superb production make for very strong albums. His music not only evoke feelings, it creates an experience. He has created albums that are well versed and profoundly executed. Stephy Says ๐Ÿ’‹ his music & albums can be described as:

โœ…a perfect treasure of melodies sung with passion

โœ…exclusively unique ventures

โœ…works of instrumental genius

โœ…melodies that seep into your brain that will leave you singing

โœ…memorable with quotable lyrics

โœ…embroidered with polished effects

โœ…some of the most intriguing albums of the year

โœ…proves to be a rousing showcase of the artist’s talents

โœ… rich in quality and balanced complexity

Stephy Says ๐Ÿ’‹ Devvon Terrell comes highly recommended because he is highly listenable, & highly humble. From start to finish, his albums grasp your attention.

AU Wood ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿ„๐Ÿฝโ€โ™‚๏ธ

Stephy Says ๐Ÿ’‹ meet AU Wood, the lyrical genius behind some of your favorite songs & dopest hits that you probably haven’t heard yet.

On a day to day basis, Wood is a respectable & friendly individual, but drop a beat & watch him transform into a beast as he bodies a beat.

Wood delivers metaphors & punchlines bar after bar with an effortless delivery. He drops so much fire that you literally have to start the song over so you can hear the bars again–so much heat that you have to pause, regain your composure, & let others hear it. Overall, itโ€™s safe to say he delivers real music.

His level of humble confidence makes you do one of two things –love him or hate him. For most, it’s the first one. Whether it’s love or hate, either way he’s respected.

He studies the art & the technique of the art to develop his rapping technique. He pays homage to the greatest rappers in the industry through his music & his verses. His music production is crisp, high quality, & professional which makes it obvious that he takes pride in his art. The structure of his songs are is flawless & has a way of leaving you wanting to hear more even after the song is over. The harmonic blend of instruments & melodies gives you smooth beats that you can vibe to or hard beats that slap & hype you up with an old school vibe. His creativity is unmatched as seen by cover art of his album.

The ingenuity of his music capitalizes on his individuality & places him in a league of his own. Hear some of my favorites here:

Ms. Cookies Baby

Summer’s Mine

Open Letter to Jay-Z

Amerikkka

His voice over the beat is smooth yet authoritative, but the confidence is what grabs your attention. He recently dropped Summer’s Mine & it painted the Facebook timeline with profile pictures of the album cover in support of him. Since it’s dropped, it’s gotten nothing but positive feedback & reviews. (If you Instagram- #Summersmine ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿ„๐Ÿฝโ€โ™‚๏ธ) In addition to Summer’s Mine dropping, he added a fire jersey to pay respect to his block ๐Ÿ”ฅ

He is lyrically a genius & places his words strategically so the flow is undeniably sick. He speaks on relatable real life issues & tells stories through his music.

His music has thousands of streams on Spotify & his fans & supporters continue to rock with him because he continues to put out dope music. Catch the wave, you may be listening to the next GOAT ๐Ÿ.
