Soul Singer Jaz Ellington Releases Powerful New Single "Don't Run"
Following an impressive stint on UK’s The Voice, soul singer Jaz Ellington continues to hypnotize with his moving songs that dabble in gospel, jazz, and funk influence. On his new single “Don’t Run,” Jaz delivers a darker, richer soundscape than most of his previous releases.
Hear what Jaz had to say about the new release below:
“Don’t Run” opens with a flavorful guitar riff, these rolling strums that lay a thick base for what’s to quickly come — Jaz’s soulful voice both powerful and tender, explosive waves of pounding percussion, and backing harmony. During its softest moments, “Don’t Run” is a haunting reflection but at its heaviest, it’s a vibrant crush of shadowy soul, a feat best delivered by Jaz Ellington and his forceful pipes.
In the music video for “Don’t Run,” we watch Jaz sing an emotional, from-the-soul performance as love unravels — then unites — between two characters among a warm palette of cold, deadened landscape, mimicking the track’s icy aspect.
