The frequency of pure love transmitted through sound, this is Sonic Visions. A mix of reggae, soul, & jazz, composed & improvised music.


I am influenced by Curtis Mayfield, Marvin Gaye, Papa Mali, Black Uhuru & Van Morrison.


maybe they're right

Written By: Jahrel

well your dady says I don't understand what it takes to be a real man who can provide you with the good things in life. I don't know, maybe they're right. And your mama says you just don't see all the trouble brewing inside me that'll bring me down & bring you down, too. I don't know, maybe they're right. Because my own daddy says I got no control, I got a damaged heart & a wounded soul. I don't know, maybe they're right. But I'm praying, yes I'm praying that they're all wrong. Yes, I'm praying, yes, I'm praying that you'll stay with me.
And if you come with me into the night we can see the city through lovers'eyes & spend a perfect night just you & I. Maybe in the morning you'll awake to see, I was only selling fantasies. I don't know, maybe they're right.

"maybe they're right" may have been on kvrx a few times. I don't currently track radio play.

Set List

My typical set list contains 8 original songs, 1 or 2 covers & 30 to 40 minutes of improvised jams. The titles of my songs are The promised land, waiting on the word, seeds, sunsets, fire & dharma, already written. My sets are typically 1 1/2 hours long. Last show I covered "may this be love" by Jimi Hendrix.
