JES continues her series of impromptu live performance videos with a guitar-based version of her Billboard #1 hit Imagination. Proving that a compelling performance requires nothing more than true talent, JES accompanies herself on a dreamy electric guitar to deliver a stripped-down and deeply personal rendition of her dance classic.
When the underlying rhythm and layers of production are cleared away, what remains of this Billboard favorite and its many dance-themed remixes is an unfettered, emotional authenticity that adds depth to JES' rapturous lead vocal performance. This award-winning New Yorker has packed four solo albums, two Billboard #1 singles, and seemingly incessant international touring into a constantly-evolving career. Since thrilling the world of EDM with her genre-defining track "As the Rush Comes" as Motorcycle (in a collab with SF-based duo Gabriel & Dresden) over a decade ago, JES has never let go of her stunning career ascension, pushing forward with a steady stream of solo hit songs and collaborations with a who’s who of the worlds most prominent DJs that includes Tiësto, Armin Van Buuren, Paul Oakenfold, Above & Beyond, ATB, Kaskade, BT, Richard Durand, Cosmic Gate and Roger Shah. JES has received 3 Grammy nominations, most recently in 2015 for her song "Hold On." This live version of "Imagination" presents JES in a moment that is at once her most vulnerable, and unsurprisingly, her most beautiful. Look forward to enjoying "Memento," JES' future-spective new album, set to drop early in the new year, which will be followed by an acoustic-only album later in 2020.
A dance remix version of this track is available on our Deep Dance playlist.
