Hi J-Kel, thanks for talking with us! Can you tell your listener a bit about yourself and what made you get into creating music?
I go by J-Kel and I’m 20 years old. I grew up outside Chicago and started putting out songs when I was 15. Once I got introduced to Hip-Hop it was over.
Who are your biggest musical influences?
Big Sean, Drake, and Khalid all changed the way I looked at music and had significant influences on me. I love great songwriters because I aspire to be one myself.
What contributes to your song creating and writing process?
My song writing process is all about finding the “right” mood, and by that I mean matching production with what emotions I convey through lyrics and flows. I feel as if I always have something to say, it’s just about getting it out.
Who would you love to collaborate with?
I would love to calaborate with Jay Prince out of the U.K. he is an incredible artist. Another collab I would love to do is 24hrs, he’s awesome and we would make hits.
Can you tell us a bit about your song "Glow", what's the meaning behind the song?
Glow is a song about the ups and downs of a relationship and looking for who to blame when in the end it’s not a blame game and we all have to look at things a little more cool, calm and collected.
What are you hoping the next year brings to your musical career?
I’m hoping to really open some doors and break into the industry this year. I just moved to North Hollywood so I am super excited for what is in store!
