("I come/ to wipe the tears from your eyes/ I come to be the break in your cloudy skies") This music is for grown folks, ya'll. Put the kids to bed, turn off the television and slip in this disc. This one is a keeper, feel me? Searcy Lewis Power Play Magazine July/August 2003 Band History: J.Feel was born in the city that never sleeps. No not 'New York City', try Las Vegas. When he was 14 Years old he and his family moved to Little Rock, Arkansas. This is where his journey began. Little Rock is a city that's not too big and not too small. It's a comfortable size and has been an enriching place for J.Feel to explore the magic of music. Here, he has learned about the power music has to heal, to set free, and to generate love. Living in the 'Natural State' has inspired him to sing and write songs with harmonies and lyrics that are soothing, complex, and personal. Although J.Feel is sometimes classified as a 'Neo Soul' artist, he believes that his style is indicative of the old school true R&B and Funk. Something he likes to call Neo-Funk Soul". His creativity has no boundaries, so his music is extraordinarily versatile. He only knows one way to write from the heart. His number one goal is to create lyrics that speak to the mind, body, and soul. His music is designed to spark a groove that draws the masses. Artists who keep growing, exploring, and reaching higher heights such as a Donnie Hathaway, Sade, Jill Scott, India Arie, Musiq Soul Child and Stevie Wonder inspire him.
