Whatever happened to Baby Jaymes?
Jan. 24, 2013
-- Oakland, CA -
Los Angeles based, alternative soul artist Baby Jaymes
(Any Given Sunday, Malibu’s Most Wanted, and CBS series NCIS) celebrates a steady stride up the CALIFORNIA MUSIC CHANNEL
In less than a month the “Streets
” video, featuring Bay Area rapper The Jacka
, has moved from the 135th position to number 95. Named the “number one local/regional Pop television station at Billboard Magazine's 21st Annual Music Video Conference, CALIFORNIA MUSIC CHANNEL, (@CMCTV
), is one of the longest running and most successful local music video services in the country,” and is also housed the San Francisco Bay Area where Baby Jaymes grew up.
“Streets” featuring the Jacka, is the creative vision of Ghetto Retro artist Baby Jaymes and director John Primo
. Filmed in Oakland, Baby Jaymes narrates a story that is not his own, but one fueled by an imaginative journey that strikes upon the complexities of urban living. “Streets” was one of those spontaneously created songs. Producer Marc Garvy
started on a track and while creating it, the entire melody and hook popped into my head. I went home and worked out the lyrics and recorded the vocal in one session. It was one of the fastest songs I've ever recorded.”
Slowly and steadily, “Streets” is winning world-wide attention having shown in Sweden and France. Its placement on CMC is significant as, “Nielsen Media Research confirm that during its time period CALIFORNIA MUSIC CHANNEL routinely outdraws all competing national cable music networks,” for the 18-49 demographic, which makes Baby Jaymes success at home more meaningful.
