J.Red, North Carolina native, knew from a very young age that music was his true passion. Growing up listening to his radio he would often imitate the vocal styling of his musical influences: Marvin Gaye, Teddy Pendergrass, Luther Vandross, Charlie Wilson and the Peabo Bryson. Further being, taken in by the New Jack Swing sound he also aspired to have the ear and production skills of its founding father, Teddy Riley. Red also knew that ultimately music was his true calling and made the steps to follow it as a career path. Though, his genre of choice is Soul and R&B, this versatile artist is also a talented songwriter and producer. Owner of WRSV 92.1 Jams, Chuck Johnson said of J. Red, “He has the best production and song quality I have ever heard from an artist based out of North Carolina, his music is as competitive with product from major labels in rotation now”.
J.Red began his official musical career as a member of the R&B group Average Guyz. While with the group J. Red began what would be preparation for his solo career. Taking advantage of every opportunity his success afforded him, Red found himself recording at “Master Sound Studio” in Virginia Beach. During this time he had the opportunity to record with such artists as Missy Elliot, Chad Hugo of “The Neptunes” as well as Big Bub (former lead singer of the 90’s New Jack Swing group, “Today”). Red’s knowledge of studio engineering, production and songwriting enabled him to pursue the vision of owning his own production company, “Soul Mop Music Group, Inc.”
J. Red's single “In Your Dream” was rated 35 of the top 50 songs for 2005 in the UK at www.soulsorts.com beating out such artists as Mary J. Blige, Usher, Jeffery Osborne and Earth, Wind & Fire to name a few. The single also made it to the number 5 spot of the top 50 singles in the UK for 2007 on the Hip List at www.bluesandsoul.com .
