Tell Us About You and Your Career
Brooklyn born and raised, renowned and respected song writer/singer JKeyz is known for his work with 98 Degrees, Timothy Wright, Puff Johnson, Red Rum and Def Jam’s group Flatliners. He is also known for his collaborations with the “ Specialist “ – [Producers from Pink’s freshman album, self titled “Can’t Take me Home” 7x platinum] and the recent billboard charting single “It’s only you” by Kristina Halloway. JKeyz now steps up to the microphone with his own brand.
Like so many others, as a child, JKeyz got his start in music by singing at home with siblings and cousins to entertain his family, eventually leading him to sing and play within his local church. Quickly, he developed a deep passion for music. His musicianship was inspired by Joe Sample and his singing was greatly influenced and inspired by such legends as The Bee Gees, Marvin Gaye and Curtis Mayfield. While witnessing the way music brought happiness to others, he knew then that he wanted to create music for the world.
With the release of his 2010 mixtape “My Journey”, JKeyz showed he was not to be taken lightly. His hot verses and crowd-rocking performances quickly gained him national and international recognition, earning him a nomination as “Best R&B Male Artist” for the 2011 Underground Music Awards. It also created an opportunity to tour as the only music artist on Tracy Morgan’s 2011 tour. In 2011, JKeyz released his first single and music video entitled “Love Spell”- which was featured as a “top played video” on Victoria Secrets Twitter feed during their annual fashion show. He also made giving back to the community a priority of his. He took part in many charitable events by partnering with “The Watchful Eye” an HIV/AIDS community awareness organization and the “Leukemia and Lymphoma Society “ and donated all proceeds of his inspirational song “BNSpired” towards research for a cure for these illnesses.
Currently, JKeyz looks forward to the release his next two smash hit singles – “All On Me “ featuring Wale (Produced by his cousin Travis Sayles of Darkchild| Justin Bieber, T.I, Meek Mill, Mary J. Blige, R.A.G.S, American Idol, etc) & “ La La La “ featuring Sean Perry. Both singles are high-energy tracks that are set to quickly take off on both the club scene, radio and billboard charts. With the upcoming emergence of his highly anticipated Spring 2013 debut album “ Jambalaya ”, JKeyz’s unique style leaves no genre untouched. Delving into real life events his lyrics are an emotion driven, insightful and intense story molded out of infectious pop and R&B music that begs to be performed.
With more smash singles on deck, keep your ears open for a fresh, new sound that will move and rock many by leaving an indelible mark as a new artist. JKeyz’s one desire is to share his message with the world... “I'm not trying to reinvent the wheel, just become the new tires”.
