Who is Recording Artist J. Locke?
National Recording Artist, Rapper-Song Writer, Arranger and all around Businessman J. Locke has had his share of life stories to tell. The NC native was raised in a small town and has always been more of a big picture type of guy.
J. Locke’s album, GOD SENT ME acts as a documentary of the transition he experienced as a lost soul living in the world to a child of God finding a home in the body of Christ. This journey allows J. Locke’s music to be transitional across gospel and secular genres.
Although his first demo sent to Kedar Entertainment did not get him a record deal, it did get him notice as well as an opportunity to write for the label which at that time was home to Neo Soul Sensation Erykah Badu. J .Locke turned it down in pursuit of his own rap career and soon after signed to John Daul Management out of Brooklyn, NY. He was then noticed by Epic Records and offered the chance to be on the” Don’t You Forget It” remix with then new-comer Canadian Neo Soul artist Glen Lewis. After some back and fourth of what to do with his project and how to market him J. Locke was later notified that the label could not see a clear path moving forward with him.
J. Locke was determined not quit and continued to pursue his calling to make music and tour the country. After taking some time off and facing various personal bouts J. Locke decided to do what all great artist often do, he reinvented himself. Completely changing his life and the direction of his music all in one breath.J. Locke’s message and path had been made clear. Now a devout Christian, he began to make music for a starving audience and the timing was perfect. They lacked the kind of music that we all grew up on that was entertaining as well as nurturing to the soul. Not only could J. Locke share the lessons he learned through his personal journey but he realized that most of his fan base was also following the same path.
