Singer/songwriter JJ Soulx flows soulfully and poetically, with lyrically conscious music and a tone that expresses great passion.
Spending her early years surrounded by the sounds of jazz, soul and gospel, she grasped a great sound & feel for music. In her teenage years, JJ would dedicate any free time she had in the studio and on the stage.
In 2011, JJ received her first official airplay from BBC’s Tony Blackburn and Gary Crowley. In the same year she became a law graduate and soon found herself trying to juggle two career paths.
In 2012, JJ landed a project with EMI where she recorded the crowd favorite “Looking Forward”. She continued to spend her hours outside of work exploring her creativity, performing in some of London’s most respectable venues including The Jazz Café and The Roundhouse; gaining a lot of experience along the way.
“Is the city life worth all the stress it’s given”, sings JJ Soulx. In November 2014 she made the biggest decision of her musical journey so far, putting her full-time legal career on hold to fulfill her music passion.
“My musical gift has come from and has been inspired by the divine source, so to me, it is and should be a lifestyle. To do this I have gone ‘Back to the Basics’, which represents a new verse in my life”.
JJ has been developing a dynamic and inspiring collection of material due to be released in 2015. This includes her current single “Back To The Basics”, an acoustic soul rhythmic track featuring the Kora played by “Jally Keba Susso”; which marries the sound of West Africa with JJ’s soulful melodies and harmonies
