Today marks 2 years exactly since we started to record my 3rd album and I’m happy to announce that it’s nearly finished! In the meantime, practice your chops!




There is a Now, but no apocalypse…to say thank you for 2012!

So as we are all still here so far, I like to take the opportunity while I have it to thank everyone for their support of my music over the past year in the US, UK, and Sweden and beyond by sharing my first and second album as free downloads for you all! I’d also like to thank among others Woody West, Late Night-Club At Henriksbergt, Nefertiti Jazz Club, PIANOS, Knitting Factory Brooklyn, Zebulon Café Concert, Pete’s Candy Store, Rockwood Music Hall, Teater Trixter, Fotografiska, for inviting me to play. Also would like to thank all the amazing friends and fans who have helped support me off and on the stage for your words of advice, encouragement, friendship, musicianship, belief, undertsanding and introductions to others and overall support and everyone else I have had the pleasure to spend time and share thoughts with over this past year! I wish you all a very happy holidays and look forward to seeing what 2013 holds for us all!? Love, J.

We have this great great ability, tool, to share online, come together, take action, start a revolution, make change, share ideas, opinions and come to an accord, to come to peace, make peace a reality. And yet instead all I see most everyday in my news feed is posts of pictures of your food in fancy restaurants when more than 1 million children in Africa alone die from starvation each year, peopl

e bullying and picking on one another, forming hate groups and spewing racist, homophobic, and sexist slanders, bragging, trying to climb the social ladder, concerned with status and their immediate selves. One could go on and on. Pull yoursleves up and grab the hand closest to you, lift them up, ask that person whose hand you grabbed to grab the next they can reach and so on till you are out your door, on the streets, singing, shouting, protesting as you walk from wherever you are to the gates of wherever your so called leader resides no matter how far from your dwelings, sit down and stop, listen, love, and don’t let go. Imagine that. Believe that that is possibile in your heart and mind. The time is now, not tomorrow for soon there could be no more tomorrow for us, our children or any generation to follow. Eat, breathe, dream peace. Who wants to hold my hand?




Swedish Fish
