J & THE REST
J & The Rest are the result of a series of happy musical coincidences. Front man, Jamal was raised in a musical family, but had never fully considered a career as a vocalist. While he studied music tech at Leeds Met, he left the course feeling that the path was not what he expected. However, his friend invited in to the studio one day to jam, where he met their uni mates John and Louis. The three clicked musically, with their friend from the live circuit Ricky joining them on drums, J & The Rest were born.
As they build towards the release of their heavily anticipated debut EP, ‘4 a.m. Again’, they tease the release with the slick electro-R’n’B vibes of the title track. With Jamal’s soulful vocal showing echoes of D’Angelo and Maxwell married against a hypnotic blend of grooves, it is a flawless and addictive introduction to the UK’s next big thing. The next single to be released from the EP is ‘Kisses On The Mirror’, which is out now.
