Jam-L

BandRockHip Hop

Classic Rock and Rap, Funk and Metal - making old school modern, mixing sounds as diverse as Prince, Frank Zappa, Ice-T, and Eminem. Lyrics that give you something to think about, music that is sample-free, and a show that entertains and leaves you with vivid memories - that is the power of Jam-L.

Biography

Weaned on classic rock, what's a black guy from the islands living with a white family in Montana gonna do? Write songs that mix the modern and the classic, spend fifteen years honing his skills, then leave the Big Sky country for a sunny beach in Florida where he can spread the music. Jam-L's music is about the good and bad in life - taking the fall for a friend's mistakes; learning the hard way about life on the street; or just partying with friends. The combined influences of classic rock, heavy metal, rap, hip hop and funk provide a sizzling backdrop for this unique sound, something that transcends the "bling & forty" styles so popular in hip hop today. Jam-L fronts a four-piece band of seasoned professionals. Could Jam-L be the next multi-platinum crossover? Here's what one reviewer said:

"Rap and metal, infused with a bit of funk and even classic rock, Jam-L evokes a unique style, showing as much influence from Richard Marx and Prince as he does from Busta and Snoop. Is Jam-L the next crossover king, bringing urban style to the masses? No tellin 'til the ink is on the contract."
