JES: Reinventing The Cure’s “Love Song”

Reinventing The Cure

So I posted a Cure story earlier this week. And my friend Sarah (thanks Sarah!) pointed me in the direction of JES. Wow. Check it out. Rocktronica. Who knew this genre existed but I like it! Her vocal are smooth, emotive, and earnest. Turn it on baby! “Unfolding around a truly breathtaking vocal, JES reinvents The Cure’s 80’s classic for a whole new generation.” Yes!

She’s apparently a chart-topping and award-winning artist. She’s got a newish album called High Glow with Black Hole Recordings and Ultra Records. The reason her voice is immediately familiar is because of her work with superstar dance artists like Tiësto, Armin Van Buuren, BT, Gabriel & Dresden and more. JES has topped numerous charts worldwide and earned two honors on Billboards famed Decade End Charts including the #4 Hot Dance Airplay song of the decade. The latest chapter in this American pioneer’s sonic adventures with her newest release will shatter all preconceptions of where EDM starts and stops. The new album, High Glow goes beyond JES’ EDM fan base by combining her song writing and performances into a wider range of styles. She stretches her talents over electronic sounds to combine her favorite elements of contemporary pop and rock music. The album marks a bright transition for JES, elevating her to new heights of accessibility. This passionate collection of songs lives up to its title, creating an ultimately uplifting feeling of hope and new beginnings that only a true shining star can bring. Bravo Baby!
