Thats Alright Music Video by Rayana Jay - BRASH! Magazine Blog

Following the release of her latest, 7-track EP Love Me Like, Bay-area singer/songwriter Rayana Jay delivers a laid-back visual for “That’s Alright”, via EMPIRE.

Shot in Brooklyn over the summer of 2018, “That’s Alright,” directed by Harlem’s very own Annie Bercy, details the modern-day love story of two long-distance lovers. The visuals encapsulate all of the excitement, anxiety and feelings that come with rekindling an old flame. With only 24-hours to conquer Brooklyn, Rayana and her ex-beau attempt to forget time and live in the moment.

The video is a Brooklyn based love story. It follows young lovers who don’t have the most time together but make the most out of it. I wanted viewers to see it all; the anxiety of getting ready, the joy, and the realization that nothing is forever.
– Rayana Jay.

Cult Classic EP vocalizes the cultural issues and expresses Grey’s vulnerability and anger towards the world we are living in and her desires for the world we are shaping. Produced by Grammy award-winning Mike Schuppan (Paramore, M83, Ziggy Marley) and mastered by Dave Cooley (Fitz & The Tantrums, Stone Temple Pilots), the release is packed with powerful storytelling and imaginative visuals. Grey admits, “Each song has its own identity and story it wants to tell”. Sonically the EP is built around organic instrumentation, fusing modern electronic soundscapes while ensuring that the production doesn’t take away from the honesty of the music. Featuring string arrangements, full choirs and authentic instruments, the release delivers listeners with a dynamic and dimensional experience. Having been described by Galore Magazine as “bringing Hollywood glamour to a sultry story of love, drugs and vanity” and adding theatrical elements, Grey is essentially the Elizabeth Taylor of the modern pop music industry.

Drawing inspiration from the world of Hollywood, it’s unrealistic expectations and the vices that people use as a form of escapism, Grey hopes that her music will help listeners aim to be the most pure and honest versions of themselves. “There is a lot about living in a pop culture centered world that we deem as ‘normal behavior’. I hope that the music can remind the listener that this follower-centric, alternate persona universe we live in is all temporary happiness,” reveals the songstress who is known for her dynamic glittery performances.

Grey has found success having performed on some of the worlds biggest stages including Ravina (Chicago), Walt Disney Concert Hall (Los Angeles) and Irving Plaza (New York).
