JHRL is a high energy assault of hard rock and hip-hop that has to be experienced live for full impact.


Biography

Johnnie Heartbreak & The Radical Legs (JHRL) is a Los Angeles based Urban Rock band whose sound has been best described as “a familiar sound that you’ve never heard before”. JHRL’s genre-shattering sound is an open marriage between rock and hip-hop, with elements of soul, and funk often working their way in the mix. This fusion creates as unmistakable energy that cannot be defined, but must experienced.

The group was formed by female lead-vocalist Johnnie Heartbreak, rapper/guitarist The Radical Legs, and guitarist/producer JT aka “Sensei”. The trio teamed up initially in 2010 in an attempt to explore new sounds and musical depths and soon discovered that they had a rare synergy that could not be ignored.

From Hustle On, the dark, bass-driven anthem for a generation of non-conformists, to Blow, the unapologetically suggestive hip-hop head-banger that promises to “take it's time” and “blow your mind”, JHRL will stimulate your senses, open your mind, and leave you wanting more.

"Our music is born from the legacy of rebellion that inspired the founders of America's only true art form. We have a wide range of influences that include artist like Amy Winehouse, Dead Prez, Bob Marley, Thelonius Monk, Marilyn Manson and Ozzy Osbourne."

Lyrics

Blow

Written By: JHRL

Verse 1:
I need my mind blown like a hurricane
Be my Katrina your demeanor’s sparking up a flame
and then you blow it out
girl you showin’ out
make em scream your name
show em what you’re about
give me that Miles Davis, Coltrane
blow my mind baby just like Cobain
high off your cocaine
blow baby I’ve heard enough talking why don’t you show me baby

Chorus:
When you see me around don’t be surprised
i keep my head in the game yeah I keep my shit tight
they say the glory is worth all the sweat and the pain
its all for the the thrill of you saying my name
Cuz I just wanna blow your mind
I just wanna blow your mind
Just let me take my time
I just wanna blow your mind

Verse 2:
We gonna blow baby blow
show em how high we can go baby go
Let it hang out and let know baby know
this is the new ya never heard this befo’
We gonna blow baby blow
show em how high we can go baby go
Let it hang out and let know baby know
this is the new ya never seen this befo’ let the energy flow
put ya hands up high reach for the sky
for my independent artist that’s barely getting by
time bomb ticking get it while the getting is good nigga stop bull shittin’
stay on the grind always on the hustle
day in the life of a beautiful struggle
mind is my muscle
bout to blow up jutst like an i.d.e.
so don’t fuck with me cause I’ll blow your mind

Chorus:
When you see me around don’t be surprised
i keep my head in the game yeah I keep my shit tight
they say the glory is worth all the sweat and the pain
its all for the the thrill of you saying my name
Cuz I just wanna blow your mind
I just wanna blow your mind
Just let me take my time
I just wanna blow your mind Just let me take my time
I just wanna blow your mind
