Overview: J. Phoenix has been compared to Jill Scott, Anthony Hamilton, Al Green, Sam Cook, and Eric Benet. Great compliments, but his sound is all his own. He is a singer and songwriter who does not fit into a particular category. The genre-defying scope of his music is impossible to pigeonhole. Check it. He is the same man who wrote contemporary Gospel group Anointed’s Dove Award-nominated “Adore” and the Hook for Tupac’s “Thugz Mansion.” He is the same writer who penned “Whatever It Takes,” featured in From Justin To Kelly and “Be Around,” featured in The Brothers. While the diversity speaks volumes, what’s most impressive is the precision he brings to each song.
In the vernacular of his peers J. Phoenix” is gangsta. In 2007 he incorporated his publishing company, From The Soul Music, and independently released his debut album, MASTERPIECE
