Still working on that hot first release.



J. Crist (James Crist) is an American recording artist originally from Northwest Indiana and now currently spends his time between Los Angeles and Chicago. His musical style is a hybrid sound with a mixture of Pop, Hip Hop, Rock, and R&B combined with powerful and dynamic vocals that immediately grab your attention with every verse, bridge, and chorus.

In 2011, J. Crist released a 7-track album titled "Grown Man Street" which was distributed independently through ten Chicagoland Best Buy locations and showcases J's true ability as a crossover artist. Since, J has gone on to release several singles, including "Feelin Fine" which debuted on Chicago's 103.5 KISS FM in early 2012.

J. Crist's latest release "Shining (Party at the Bar)" is a dance song that has gained traction in the Chicago market with a live-in-studio debut on 103.5 KISS FM, in addition to a live performance at the official KISS FM "Fantabuloso" after party at Enclave Nightclub. J is currently hitting up the Chicago and L.A. nightlife scene performing the new single at area clubs and events.
