After listening to love songs by Prince and Lenny Kravitz, a young man named Jamal picked up his guitar and began making music at age 13. Inspired by smooth sounds and heartbreak, he moved to Atlanta to begin interning for Legendary Music producer, Dallas Austin.
He’s only been on Indaba Music for a few months but he’s already won our hearts with his song “Rising Sun.” Check out his winning mix from our Love and Heartbreak Opportunity below!
He’s only 19 years old but Joose has been producing for over 6 years. After testing out a few genres within Hip-Hop, he finally decided to start recording and producing his own music and when a friend introduced him to Indaba Music, he jumped at the opportunity to get more feedback from a community of musicians.
It was his first opportunity on Indaba Music but Joose has already proved himself by winning our Shad and Dallas Opportunity. Check out his winning track and Winner’s Interview below!
