Where are you from?
I was born and raised in Houston, Texas, USA, where I currently reside.
Name of band:
I am a solo artist, who goes by the name K Jazz.
How would you describe yourselves?
I am an R&B artist with a background of gospel and soul which I incorporate into my music vocally. I have been singing since the age of five and have been musically inclined professionally since high school, some people have presumed me to be the girl with a light speaking voice that comes across shy or reserved, but when I sing, the power and vocal abilities brought forth are way beyond people’s expectations. I have a true passion for music, and though every experience is energetic, fun and joyful, I take my music career very seriously. It is my belief that if a person does not see themselves and their talent as professional and valued no one else will either.
Who are your main influences musically?
My main influences are some of the greats of R&B and soul music like, Aretha Franklin, Patty Labelle, Gladys Knight, Isley Brothers, the late Whitney Houston among others, as well as some of the new school like Mary J. Blige, Kelly Price and others. These artists have influences my in many ways from vocal abilities to soulful persona.
What do you hope to achieve in music?
My goal in the music industry is to become among some of these great artists one to remember for talent, creativity, professionalism and music/messages that will last a lifetime. With all these things in place, all the other blessings will follow.
What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
The highlight of my career so far has been to be able to make music for my fans to enjoy; and though stumbling blocks have and will always cross the path, as long as I can do that, while continuing to build a rapport with my fans, I am good.
And what’s the moment you want to forget?
So far I do not have a moment that I just want to forget. I have had issues that have come about during my journey in my music career, but I take those moments as lessons learned. In order to excel at something, we must first overcome some things; and as we all know being an artist, not everyone in the music industry has our best interest at heart, but continuing to be true to ourselves, is the utmost importance in any situation.
If you could choose just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
To choose just one of my songs to represent my music, I would have to say "Southern Comfort Lover", my newest single. This song reflects my southern background, with a mix of soulful, blues and gospel feel.
