“Behold the work of a fully realized artist at his creative peak.” ~ Andy Frank, Roots Music Canada
Your Perfect Matador adorns the colossal battles between love and art with a poets sense of right and wrong
Through orchestrated layers reminiscent of the plushest art galleries, Jay Aymar (pronounced Ay-Mar), consummate songwriter and poet, rises from shadowed concrete beds to bring us a cinematic view of the colossal battles between love and art, bred through the transience and demands of touring. Your Perfect Matador celebrates the juxtaposition and necessity to “do a little wrong, to make things right,” illustrated by visual artists Banksy, Vincent van Gogh and Leonardo da Vinci. It’s a narcotic cocktail of edgy post-Americana, swampy southern roots-rock with touches of soul and funk.
Produced by Michael Phillip Wojewoda, featuring guest vocals from Shakura S’aida, Alejandra Ribera and Chloe Charles and string arrangements from Drew Jurecka.
