Jaimeo Brown Transcendence
Sometimes, when you find a voice, your life is no longer your own. It belongs to those you speak to, speak for and speak of. Jaimeo Brown found his voice in struggle and hope. His work, grounded in jazz’s long tradition as a protest art form, features samples of historical work songs blended with contemporary jazz, blues and hip-hop. Sung with fire, healed with love, his notes are the echoes of protest and his rhythms are the universal beat of freedom and solidarity. His experience includes working with storied artists including Stevie Wonder and Carlos Santana, and as an ambassador for the US State Department.
“One of the most exciting, experimental and important albums set to drop this year.” -VICE
