JNaturaL was born and raised in Los Angeles California. She has been involved in music all her life learning various instruments and perfecting her vocal quality. She found her place as a poet and a singer in early adolescence later to evolve into an emcee with a very unusual style.
JNaturaL is truly an original sound. Mixing verbal stylings with melodic dynamics, heart, wisdom and the cheeky sarcasm of someone who means to challenge present views of the world and of self, JNaturaL has been compared to such artists as Lauryn Hill, Bahamadia, and Los Angeles's very own Medusa. She however would argue the claim that it is not just because she is a female artist, that her music should automatically be comparable to that of the aforementioned artists. But that she is indeed deserving of those weighty comparisons. Heavily influenced by the west coast underground of the 90's, such as Freestyle Fellowship, Aceyalone, Heiroglyphics and Pharcyde, JNaturaL brings style to dramatic storytelling, always bringing truth to the light through personal experiences.
Not only does JNaturaL have the raw skill of a true emcee, but she also composes her rhymes with thought provoking content, and delivers with vocal mastery. The true craft at hand is the presentation of cohesive ideas throughout the body of work that create the concept album. This craft coupled with her extraordinary vocal ability is what sets JNaturaL apart from other emcees, male or female. In all bodies of work JNaturaL brings the art of storytelling, creativity, and original angles of approach to the table. A true artist, breeding positive vibes, JNaturaL is someone you will want to see live, as she catches and holds the attention of audiences with her emotional on stage presence. She has already opened for such artists as Jeru the Damaja, Slug of Atmosphere, CMA (Grouch and PSC), El Roneous and Brother Ali. Her music has also been played on the airwaves of KUCI, 90.7 Los Angeles, THIRD FLOOR and EARTHBOUND internet radio stations. Look out for JNaturaL, she is someone you will definitely want in your speakers, live at your local venue and on your radio frequencies.
