Of Note: ‘Stranger’
by Jay Hayden and King Vodka
Ahh… there was a time in my life when this song would have pretty much summed up many of my wonderful one-off sexual encounters. Those days (for me) are gone, but this song still resonates with a sensual vibe which cannot be denied.
Jay Hayden (not to be confused with the actor of the same name), hails from Washington D.C. He is primarily a songwriter and producer, though he does perform live, as a solo artist, in the D.C. area, quite frequently. Back in 2010, Hayden hit the Billboard Top 100 with a single from his first album, ‘Love Counseling’, called ‘Nowhere’.
‘Stranger’, his latest release, with King Vodka, glides by on a voluptuous feather bed of late night lust inspired by one-too-many cocktails. Subtle and arousing, it’s the kind of old school, tasteful carnality one hears all too infrequently these days. Whether it finds a place on radio, other than urban R&B stations, remains to be seen.
