“It is with great humility that I look upon the relationships I have formed with these legends. The bar has been set.”
Jaxon co-wrote with Geoff Levin and performed the track” Love Conquers All” for the feature film,” Who Made The Potatoe Salad” (starring actor /comedians Jaleel White and Eddie Griffen, released November 6, 2006 by 20th Century Fox).
Jaxon communicates a global viewpoint. He depicts love as a sensation of soul beyond the mere physical, where true beauty resides. He needs only to step outside and observe to find endless inspiration. Soul music is his medium of choice. He merges yesterday’s sounds of soulful wisdom with today’s hip-hop rhythm and progress toward tomorrow.”
Jaxon's time has finally come with the communication reaching across the Atlantic to European shores, to the wise ears of England's own Di-Lee of Soulchoonz Records, his international debute EP "Look" has arrived.
