THE COFFEE AND SOCKS SESSIONS PODCAST

A podcast series dedicated to connecting with people from South Africa and around the world. In this series, we connect with interesting people with great stories about life, history, music, mental health, technology, and more. It's basically conversations that I believe could inspire us all to become more curious about the world around us, to follow our passions, and how we can learn from each other when trying to navigate through life.

ESJAY JONES

Esjay Jones is a South African-born producer & songwriter now based between Los Angeles and Joshua Tree, California. She had her first major cut in the U.S. alongside co-writer Justin Tranter in 2013 with the single “I Choose U” by TimeFlies on Def Jam Records.  We have a long-standing history but haven't connected as much as we would like since she moved to the United States.  I was really excited to host her on this episode to chat about life, music, living in America, mental health, politics, and what it took to make the move from South Africa.  In the interview, we chat in-depth about her work on Grey Daze's album (Chester Pennington of Linkin Park's first band), working with Head from Korn, Billy Corgan from the Smashing Pumpkins, and the various projects she's been working on since moving to the States.   We reference moments from her production sessions with French producer Lucas 'D'Angelo and what it was like listening to outtakes of Chester Bennington recording vocals in his late teens with Grey Daze. Follow Esjay on social media:  Facebook  Twitter  Instagram   You can also follow her LIVE FROM THE COOP sessions.
