North Carolina’s own Jason Jetplane is a breath of fresh air to the world of music. His music is soulful, it’s R&B, it’s universal, it’s relatable, it’s honest, it’s young, it’s fun! It’s what we need to hear more of.
Jetplane’s refreshing approach, musical sincerity and exciting production give him an edge up on the competition.
Vocally he could be compared, Musiq Soulchild and John Legend, but be clear, Jetplane’s style and voice is all his own. Musically, along with Janelle Monae, Jetplane’s sound is genre-bending, with its mass appeal and could be played on a number of formats.
Not only is Jetplane a singer, he writes, produces, arranges and engineers his own music, similar to R&B genius Ryan Leslie. With talented young upcoming acts such as Jetplane, the future of R&B shows great promise.
