Whats' Being Said ...

J.Ramada – whose fascinating latest EP Turquoise needs only five tracks to offer a master class in fusing edgy rock, Americana, jazz, EDM, folk, Latin/flamenco and soulful and grooving trap vibes. Freewheeling effortlessly from exotic, clapping flamenco funk (“The Last in Line”) and gentle acoustic grace (“Any Other Way”) to atmospheric, piano driven R&B/pop (“King of Hearts”) and trippy sensual ambience (“Too Far To Go”), each track is an impactful showcase for Ramada’s expansive compositional artistry and breathy, emotionally raw vocals. ” - Jonathan Widran LA Times - Billboard

"I began the Turquoise Sessions while recording with César Callirgos at his studio SOMA in Lima Peru. When I returned to LA in the Spring Covid had hit. Turquoise EP was produced in the peak of Covid. Seth and I found ways to work remote from our studios and were able to track our sessions and ultimately mix. Turquoise has a loneliness to it that couldn’t be escaped during those days. Yet it’s also a celebration of love and the triumph of imagination.

Ultimately a song “Feels About Something”. The first single, Imaginary Thunder, feels about staying together. Holding on to dreams and positive imagination while acknowledging, that almost always, the source of wisdom is pain. But still, through the toughest of times and the storms of challenge, to never give up no matter what “the clowns” may say or think. It seems to be working for me… 💫" J.Ramada

THE LAST IN LINE AVAILABLE NOW The Newest Single, complete with HD cover art. “I was paddling out at Malecon (Peru) one evening when I heard a local wail ‘¡El último! ¡Afuera!’, meaning… the last one – outside! The Last In Line! It was the last wave in a set of waves and it was epic. I did not catch that wave but a couple of my brothers and sisters did. Watching one of them gracefully drop in and arc up into the tube while screaming with joy blew a hole in my soul. Time stopped and I heard the tune. ‘Outside The Last In Line The Sun Still Shines And I’m Gonna Catch A Ride.’

“So many words started coursing through my head … the verses. I ultimately melded them together. All about Escaping The Rat Race … looking at life from another dimension, jumping off into the unknown. A true feeling that ultimately, everything would be alright. It hit me like that. All at once and it felt like a mixture of light, dark, acceptance and total celebration!”

“I was in Cusco the previous week and a legendary luthier named Sabino had just finished making a marimacho that would become one of my studio instruments. It’s a traditional Peruvian lute – similar to a bandurria and it sounds a bit like a mandolin. It has amazing lightening energy if you play it fast and gentle. I returned to my flat by the ocean that night and wrote ‘The Last In Line’ on the marimacho. We recorded the original tracks in Peru. David Leach and I finished the groove and vocals in Los Angeles. It was the first song finished on the record that would become the EP Turquoise. It happened so fast. Kind of like lightening, lifting from the strings of the marimacho with the roar of the ocean just outside my door. ‘The Last In Line’ feels like all of that.” Follow us on all major streaming services worldwide!
