ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
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.

"Future Stars are built around passion. I personally see this potential in her." - Joel Marsigan, on Required Audio. IMPORT TUNER MAGAZINE 2003.

Brad at CD Baby


Simultaneously abstract and raw, the thick blend of hip hop, spoken word, and neo-soul from this Los Angeles MC is something worth wrapping your head around. With a voice that is tailor made for rapping as well as singing, she uses discretion when saturating the tracks, creeping in and out of the forefront while echoing the beats with vocal hits and jabs that are well placed and add a real density to the mix. While the feel is at times somber and on the verge of deadly serious, the songs maintain an allegiance to positivity that isn't far beneath the surface. It's this look at the bright side that really carries these songs and renders them so memorable and effective. While she often gives the vibe of a hardened and street savvy woman, she is equally delicate and feminine when it counts. The juxtaposition between this vocal/lyrical approach and the heavy, haunting beats is a risk, but it works to her advantage, really giving her a push while smoothing out the edges of the music. With guest vocalists that are as adept as she is at commanding and taking hold of a track, this album offers enough variety and intricacy to keep the heads spinning for a long time to come.
