The story behind the hit song "Twelve on Sunday": 

Fathers and daughters' relationships are often discussed. They are the subject of studies. (10 Reasons Fathers are so Important to their Daughters). They make for good drama in films and television shows. The new single by Jay Elle, "Twelve on Sunday," relates how a father, single, reacts to his twelve year old daughter having a tantrum and leaving the house. (Raising Your Daughter as a Single Dad

Where is she going? Will she come back soon? She’s much too young to be out there on her own. Will she runaway and never come back? It’s a nightmare for every parent that has to live through the experience.  His daughter leaving takes him back in time to when she was much younger. She reminds him of her mother.


The song is performed by Jay Elle singing and accompanying himself on the guitar with no other instrument. Jay Elle plays a nylon string Ovation guitar that brings the classical sound gravitas to the mix. This bare arrangement is meant to accentuate the raw emotions the father feels for his daughter growing up in front of his eyes. The sound is unique and Jay Elle stands out from the crowd big time.


The production focuses on capturing a truly emotional vocal performance. And it works. Jay Elle nails it. What a great voice. It’s a true break from the norm for a new artist releasing his first single. No one else sounds like him. This is not about a band, slick production values, it's about a unique, real life, emotional situation between a father and his daughter.


Twelve on Sunday is a great song with a beautiful melody and unique, poignant lyrics touching on a rare subject matter. The presentation and performance, bringing us Jay Elle “naked” for his first release is inspired by "She's Got A Way" by Billy Joel who performs his song at the piano without any other instrument. Twelve on Sunday is already playing on over 100 radio stations.

"Twelve on Sunday" Lyrics:

Words and Music by Jay Elle

Copyright 2016


Could be she went for a walk

Could be she needed fresh air

Maybe that will calm her down

You should see what’s left of her room

It wasn’t the usual tantrum

Then again she’s turning twelve on Sunday


There is no misunderstanding

There is a volcano in her mind

I’m no longer superman

Now I’m just an old brick wall

Freight trains run through my head

Then again she’s turning twelve on Sunday


I know

She loves to play

Her mother was the same way

She’ll try everything she can to get in trouble today

She knows

I’m in a panic

Worry myself sick

She knows I’ll try to get her face on a few quarts of milk


Maybe she’ll remember when

I used to check under her bed

Chase the scary monsters away

Bring her milk and honey

Since it’s been just her and me

Then again she’s turning twelve on Sunday


I know

She loves to play

Her mother was the same way

She’ll try everything she can to get in trouble today

She knows

I’m in a panic

Worry myself sick

She knows I’ll try to get her face on a few quarts of milk


Could be she went for a walk

Could be she needed fresh air

Maybe that will calm her down

You should see what’s left of her room

It wasn’t the usual tantrum

Then again she’s turning twelve on Sunday


It wasn’t the usual tantrum

Then again she’s turning twelve on Sunday

Then again she’s turning twelve on Sunday

"We enjoyed your song "Twelve on Sunday." Your voice is wonderful. Smooth and flexible with a fresh and unusual tone. You capture attention with your intonation and clarity, that's your strength. It's nice to see an artist being innovative with their sound."

A.V.A Live Radio


"Twelve on Sunday is an incredible song by artist Jay Elle... He also explains that this girl likes to do anything she feel that may get her in trouble. Could this be the reason she's no longer around? This single left me with many unanswered questions as a story was revealed in my ears through melody. What ever happened to the girl? For that reason is why I'm in deep hopes for a part two. A beautiful guitar playing in the background, with smooth & passionate lyrics by Jay Elle."


4 out of 5 Flames is the rating I feel this single deserves. But take a listen for yourself & you be the judge!
