WINNER AMERICAN IDOL UNDERGROUND
UK soul singer Jag scoops American Idol Underground award for the song “Take you there”, taken from the classic debut album “Whatever it takes”
The release of a cover of the Gap Band classic “Someday”, which featured Jag and the legendary vocalist and Bollywood actor Shankar Mahadeven, took the Indian sub-continent by storm selling over 250,000 copies. Levis Jeans were so impressed with this record that they used it as an integral part of a major advertising campaign.
Since then the British public have had a chance to sample the soulful, dynamic voice of Jag on television, radio and in the live arena. Jag has continued to build a great reputation for himself supporting artists such as Joe, Kelly Price, Donell Jones and Truth Hurts to mention a few.
The forthcoming release by Jag is the soulful “Take You There”, which has already picked up play listings on some of the top US independent radio stations, including 104.7 FM the number one independent station in the United States. Jag has also received great support from UK radio stations such as BBC 1Xtra, BBC Asian network, Choice Fm and the Galaxy Network.
Take you there will be released on VME Records on March 6th 2006
