Jay Elle is uniquely gifted with a voice that is smooth and soothing. Folk music is defined as typically being of unknown authorship and is transmitted orally from generation to generation. Twelve on Sunday is in my opinion is a folk song that is easy to remember, relatable, and sounds like it could easily pass from generation to generation. There are no over-bearing instruments and drum patterns, just an acoustic guitar the voice of the storyteller.
This songs presents an interesting storyline. Jay talks about a father reminiscing about his daughter, a girl he clearly cherishes, despite her tantrums’. The careful arrangement of the story keeps the listener glued to the song from start to finish. It’s hard to realize how fast it comes to an end as the story easily carries away one’s attention. This is an important plus to this track. The lyrics are easy to follow with the refrain reminding the listener about the key theme.
