J Pope and the HearNow: Record Release Party!
with special guests
Event Type: music/performance
Celebrate with J Pope and the HearNow as they drop their long-awaited debut album Soul Searching. The two-set show will feature the album performed in its entirety in the first set, followed by a second set stuffed with new material, old favorites, and guest appearances by Eze Jackson (Soul Cannon), Black Root, Love the Poet, Jonathan Gilmore, Brooks Long, Queen Earth, Femi the DriFish (The Out of Water eXperience), Wendel Patrick (Baltimore Boom Bap Society), Jahiti (BrownFISH), and more.
J Pope and the HearNow are a hip hop infused alt-soul group based in Baltimore, Maryland. As one of Baltimore's best kept musical secrets, the band's reputation for eclectic composition, deft improvisation, and profound lyrical content is built on high-energy live performances. After years of questions (and threats) from their supporters and Baltimore's most renowned performers, J Pope and company have finally finished a studio recording that they're confident will leave their supporters satiated for at least a week (fingers crossed! no, seriously... it's great). Their debut album, Soul Searching, is a snapshot of a period that saw shifting band members, failed experiments, and lessons learned, but also intense moments of inspiration and clarity. The project was produced by acclaimed Baltimore artist Wendel Patrick (Professor of Hip Hop at Peabody Conservatory, Co-producer of PRX's Out of the Blocks) and is set to be released in June of 2017. J Pope and the HearNow is: Jasmine Pope (vocals), Jacob Kohlhas (guitar), Dan Samuels (drums), Andrew Freed (bass), Gabriel Pickus (percussion), Daniel Wallace (saxophone).
Proudly presented with Frimfram Productions.
