Having attended the NAMA awards (Native American Music Awards) to cover the historic presentation by Chinese star Ayi Jihu it was obvious to us that Native Americans have some amazing artists and talent. However not many seem to break through and the music scene is missing out here. Hold the phone though. Perhaps that is about to change as a new voice has emerged. Singer and Songwriter Jezz Harvey is a Native American artist who may change things. Her debut single produced by Stevie Eagle E (The man who discovered and managed the historic Ayi Jihu) ‘You haunt me‘ is not only brilliant, haunting and touching, but it also has a great chance of crossing over and gaining her a mainstream audience. The track also features a RAP by Stevie Eagle E.
It is the connection with Shlepp Entertainment that is the big difference with Jezz Harvey. Shlepp Entertainment Ltd have a history of turning a global gaze on anything they put their hands on. Perhaps there most famous example being ‘The Chinese Madonna‘ Ayi Jihu. This bodes well for Jezz Harvey. ‘You haunt me’ is already a testimony to the delicate balance of fusing Native American overtones with pop and making it seamless. It’s hard to define whether we call this track soul, blues, pop or whatever, it just works and the Native American influences are subtle but present. It’s a powerful track that throws up many questions about Jezz Harvey and her past as you listen to it.
You haunt me is available to download for free until Christmas day as a special gift from Shlepp Entertainment and Jezz harvey. We suggest you click the image above and get yours asap. It is one you will like to have in your collection. There is a fire and angst in this girl that comes across strongly when she sings. She has something to say and she is going to say it.
Jezz Harvey’s debut you album (untitled) is set to be released summer of 2017 no firm date has been set as yet but we look forward to it and hope that more Native American talent will begin to shine through into the mainstream. We shall be looking out for it. In the meantime we shall keep you up to day with all things Jezz Harvey as she progresses.
