J. Morris is on a trajectory to change the face, feel and sound of music.
With an uncompromised work ethic and sincerity for the authenticity of music, this well-versed singer, song writer and percussionist has the power to alleviate the nostalgia for the real melodic experience the industry craves. “My heart is with the independent artist. I believe a dope artist should never be a starving artist.” he is a Virginia native. His bond with the arts was solidified when he became a church drummer as a youth—that’s where the foundation was built. J finally gained the confidence to pursue a full-time music career after being selected for the 2006 Army Soldier Show Tour. He is currently co-coordinator for “New Music Wednesday” at Radio One Atlanta.
Largely due to the tone of his voice, J has been compared to the likes of other extremely talented artists, and while he finds it humbling and complimentary, he’s comfortable in his own lane. As a new artist, his resume boasts impressive collaborations with GRAMMY Award winning artists, songwriters, and producers. Citing Louis Armstrong, James Brown, Kanye West, Luther Vandross and Ray Charles as his original musical influences, J strives to impact the music industry positively like his predecessors. Truly a lover of people, he also hopes to enrich the human experience with his efforts.
