CEH April 2023 New Dancehall Releases: Spotlights Jaz Elise

Written by: Nekisha 'Neicy' Cyrus

In this month’s music spotlight, we feature the beautiful and talented, Jamaican born singer Jaz Elise. Born Jasmine Taylor, Jaz Elise hails from the strongly cultured City of Kingston, Jamaica and started singing at the tender age of five years old.

She grew up listening artiste like Sizzla, Stephen Marley, Capleton, Tanya Stephens, Lauryn Hill and even Nina Simone. An interest in the arts led Elise down a creative path that consisted of performing and singing while she was enrolled in school. While Elise’s parents believed she would eventually become a doctor, as her two sisters had, her heart was pulling her towards singing professionally. Once she was enrolled in college, as a psychology student at the University of the West Indies in Mona, Jamaica, she announced to her parents that she’d be pursuing music.
