Introducing Alex Jaymes, Debut Single ‘I’ll Write You A Song’ To Premiere July 10

Alex Jaymes is 20-years-old and has been performing since he could talk.

Raised in northwest Iowa – though he was adopted at 15 days old from Lima, Peru – he got his big break in an increasingly familiar way. After posting a video of himself covering Justin Bieber’s “Born To Be Somebody” from the movie “Never Say Never” on YouTube, the song’s Grammy-winning writer Diane Warren took a liking to his rendition. Soon after, Jaymes hooked up with producer Mikal Blue (Colbie Cailliat, Jason Mraz), who took on the young singer at Revolver Records.

Jaymes’ catchy, soulful debut single, “I’ll Write You A Song,” will be released on July 10, but you can get a first look at the up-and-coming artist right here right now!
