Most stories about the ‘American Dream’ either begins at the bottom with the world watching your rise to the top or we witness the unfortunate fall from grace. Whether it’s movies or music, the grey area, the backbone of our very nation is taken for granted. The Middle Class is the engine that keeps America running in a time where wealth and high fashion is glorified.

J. Kendall drops the first Visual from his freshly released debut album “Moving Forward”. This soulful and true RnB gem, also the title track from the album, gives you a good insight into the man behind this memorable voice. An added bonus is the albums intro track “What I Want” included in this double-feature video. Enjoy!
J. Kendall’s newest release, “Moving Forward”, is a perfectly balanced collaboration of his classically smooth singing with the inventive beat making prowess of respected Sacramento veteran N8 the Gr8. Floating, psychedelic soul synths sweep around the sophisticated vocal harmonies, describing tales of love, lust and loneliness in the days and nights of a modern hustle. N8 the Gr8 , whose past tracks have been laced by the likes of Talib Kweli, Devin the Dude and Gucci Mane, creates an expansive spectrum of sounds for this project. From nostalgic, smooth R&B and sexy club hits to eccentric, futuristic compositions spiced with the proper effects, this album stays diverse and exciting throughout all 12 tracks. Guest spots from seasoned spitters Spends Quality and Equipto and angelic vocals from up and coming siren Maryann complete the recipe.

Singles Review ‘ Tell Me Why’
” ‘Not to be confused with the record label with the same name, The Wah Wah Collective come through with their second 12” release, and it’s the best so far. Fiona Faye’s vocals fit really nicely in to this downtempo jazz ditty with its tender fender rhodes and soulful strings. Perfect after-hours listening.”
The Wah Wah Collective is right now what you could call a Trans-Atlantic group with beats from London & France and with vocals and production also stemming from Italy and the US. The Wah released vinyl only EP’s and Singles in the mid-00’s gaining some notoriety for their mixture of neo-soul with alternative dance.
