“Time Goes Fast” is a soaring success from JANA & JORGE, emphasizing the duo’s lovely blend of rock, pop, soul, and jazz. The introduction finds breezy acoustics joining Ashley Jana’s resonating vocals, casting a riveting spell with the rise past the one-minute mark. “I’ll be here, I will wait,” her majestic vocals conclude. The final two minutes present a spontaneous allure; wordless backing vocal effects intermingle with playful guitars and prancing woodwinds for an effervescent pull. “Time Goes Fast” showcases stellar production and songwriting from this talented duo.
The duo’s collaboration arose from a digital connection. The Peru-based songwriter Jorge Luis Izquierdo came across NYC artist Ashley Jana’s music on the internet. Izquierdo was taken by Jana’s “expressive vocals and expansive collection of performances,” which earned her music spots popular TV series like Empire and Dance Mom. From there, Izquierdo and Jana commenced a fruitful digital collaboration, giving way to tracks like “Come Back Around,” “You Make Me A Mess,” “Live Forever,” and “Time Goes Fast.”
