After releasing his new sophomore album, JAZ’S BLUES (SIDE A) via Canadian indie label and collective Day7 Records, Toronto genre-bending artist, songwriter, and musician Jaz Valentino shares the visuals for his single “Life Waters”. The single digs deep into Jaz’s Grenadian roots and background. Bolstered by a cinematic and ominous soundscape, Jaz delivers a heartfelt and ear-gripping performance as he details his growth as an individual finding his center in this crazy world.



The visual makes use of performance shots and multiple motifs that taps into the theme of the song.

Jaz’s Blues (Side A) opens with ‘Farmers Land’, a tribute to Jaz Valentino’s father, who passed away from liver cancer when Jaz was only 13, before digging deeper into his trust issues on ‘Eunoia’, addressing his friendships on songs like ‘King City’ and ‘Like Minds’, refocusing on his faith on ‘Blue F’, and closing out the album with ‘Life Waters’, which is about starting over with a clean slate, and features Jaz’s grandmother, who practically raised him.

Speaking about the inspiration behind the album, Jaz Valentino says, “‘Jaz’s Blues (Side A)’ is me baring my soul in the music about the last three years of my life and what I’ve been going through. Flowers come out of the growth process, but no one talks about the pain the bud or seedling go through in the process, and this is what the album represents. I wrote these songs through the pandemic, through finding my feet in the music industry, through countless rejections and breakups.

Recorded between Phoenix, Atlanta and LA, this album is me venting my pain in its rawest form, but it is also a helping hand and motivation for those that are going through depression, illness, financial loss, loss of a loved one – no matter what shade of the blues. I guarantee it’s not foreign to me! I know how it feels to be the ‘E.T’ in the room and you do too! Don’t let anyone warp your magic into a mistake! Claim your power and claim your blues! Let’s turn the blues into greens and golds!
