Jae B

The Soul Man”



Soul music is described by the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as music that arose out of the Black experience in America through the transmutation of Gospel and Rhythm & Blues into a form of funky, secular testifying. That being so, Jae B is a soul man in its purist sense.


Jae B is a Southern Soul/Blues artist who is a recent convert to the genre. He resisted singing Southern Soul/Blues for a long time, but he kept getting requests to sing songs by Soul/Blues artists. Each time he did, the response was overwhelming, and he has finally stepped into his role as a Southern Soul man.


Jae B is now carrying on the tradition of great soul men like Bobby Rush, Mel Waiters, Theodis Ealey, William Bell, Marvin Sease, Willie Clayton, Bobby Womack, Otis Redding, Ray Charles, Johnny Taylor, Sam & Dave, Z. Z. Hill, and Tyrone Davis.


He also respects the genres of Blues and Southern Soul and vows to keep it real just like the great artists did. That includes dressing the part as well as giving the audience all he’s got. Jae B works hard for the audience like the old school performers of the 50s, 60s, and 70s. He pulls his audiences in with high energy performances and a contagious smile. He has the stamina to perform all night long with the same vigor and dynamism from the first song to the last, giving passionate and dramatic performances that endear him to his audiences.


Jae B possesses great versatility as a performing artist. As much as he loves Southern Soul/Blues, Jae B isn’t limited to the genre. He also brings the funk with the sounds of Cameo, the Gap Band, Funkadelic, Maze, and others to get the audience on the dance floor. And he is fantastic when he gets grown and sexy with the mellow Neo Soul sounds of D’Angelo, Raphael Saadiq, Kem, and Maxwell.


Jae B is also a musician, songwriter, and prolific producer. He has completed his first Southern Soul/Blues CD called Shake it Up.


Jae B has something for everybody, and he is one of Atlanta’s best kept secrets. But now, the secret is out.
