Drive Cover_edited_edited.jpg

Excitement today surrounding the new release of Drive (feat. Amanda Hawkins) from Jay Silence! Jay brought on Colorado's own, Amanda Hawkins, to team up on this song and bring her amazing style and grace to the sound. 

"When I first heard Amanda sing, I knew she'd be a perfect fit for this song! Amanda does an amazing job singing all around. Performing the National Anthem at the Colorado Avalanche games at Ball Arena, singing and writing her own music and singing on many songs and records from other artists. She's an awesome talent and I was stoked that she's a part of this song!"

Jay went on to talk about the story behind Drive, "I think this song for me is all about the feelings that come with hard times in any relationship. I think that's something most everyone can relate to and have probably experienced at some point in their life. The analogy of trying to keep it all on the right side and not crossing the center lines towards oncoming traffic really paints a picture of the struggles people can go through while loving somebody." Jay continued, "We were tumblin' in a field of dust, that line kind of sums it up, gave it all we had, and it eventually crashed and burned."

With Drive (feat. Amanda Hawkins) being released in early March 2024, Jay has kept on pace with his single releases and all leading up to the new full-length album coming out later this year called, "Fly Me Away." This song has also already been added to rotations at multiple stations including K4CO Radio.
