Power of One
Sometimes we allow ourselves to become lackadaisical and/or nostalgic and let the best of things pass us by unnoticed. Well, if you are amongst the unfortunate and uninformed few, who so sadly let this musical happening pass you by --let this notabene (call)hasten to review this for you. Jakki James is here, musically dynamic and enormously talented, staking her claim, demanding the attention slle so justly deserves, ready and able to take her career to the next level.Her upcoming CD invites her fans and all music lovers to a vocal space and creative dimension never before displayed, as she incorporates tile toe-tapping, hypnotic,pulsating and rhythmic reggae beat to her natural neo-soul genre. The result is a masterpiece worthy of worldwide attention with the potential of catapulting her to the top of the pop charts on every continent. Far from being a newcomer to the music business,Jakki James is just the best kept secret on the Toronto music scene.She has traveled extensively and after visits to South Africa (Sun City) and Bermuda etc. Chose Toronto as her home for over ten (10)years now. No 'diamond in the rough' either but an already polished gem waiting to be snatched by an unsuspecting public as soon as this soon-to-be released recording becomes available. The time is now as the Jakki James mystique has been discovered, and a collaboration ensued, resulting in her best recorded effort yet. The result will be available very soon for the whole world to embrace and her fans to celebrate.In this musical environment where hip-hop, rhythm & blues hybrid and pseudo pop dominates the airwaves and record outlets, this versatile lady of song has successfully juxtaposed the reggae genre in this mainstream arena with professional ease and convincing success. The result is magical.Usually in the recorded music business before one acquires any measure of recognition, it means years of hardshilJs, disappointments, wrong direction, indiscreet and/or unscrupulous management, strength-sapping travels and numerous unsatisfactory studio sessions. Jakki James is no stranger to this journey and has paid her dues --patiently and then some.
