Review: Jace Heyman – ‘Drunk Text’



Joshua James Heyman, better known by his musical moniker Jace Heyman, has quietly become one of England’s most captivating pop talents. While a newcomer to the music scene, Jace found his love for music at an early age, studying the artists that inspired him and devouring as much music, knowledge, and experience as he could. An established dancer throughout secondary school, it was only a matter of time before he took the plunge and started creating music of his own.


A vibrant take on the current pop and RnB scenes, Jace’s debut single announces him as a unique talent, offering an expansive Caribbean and dancehall infused sound that will fit perfectly within the mainstream. Tiled ‘Drunk Text’, the new single is an enchanting blend of lingering emotions and tropical beats, bringing a new flavour to the traditional post-breakup anthem.


Conjuring up definite pop vibes, Jace’s vocals shine, creating a vibrant and emotive sound that is perfectly complemented by the layered sounds of the piece. Synths sweep through, offering fleeting moments of warmth and stability that break through the island percussion, tracing the anxiety, emotion, and ultimate regret that always arises from drunk texting your ex, creating an experience that we can all relate to in one way or another.



Paired with the official music video that wonderfully emphasises the nature of the single, ‘Drunk Text’ vividly portrays a relatable story that will connect with most, if not all, who listen to it. The first song to be taken from Jace’s upcoming EP, ‘Love Under the Influence’, ‘Drunk Text’ is an impressive and ensnaring debut that promises big things to come.
