J. Hoard is a Brooklyn based singer and songwriter. Summer 2015 he released an EP entitled "Feel Good". The songs on the EP are reflective and intended to provide healing and peace to the listener via urban beat production and vibrant melodies. In the past year, he's performed and shared bills with Bilal, Sonnymoon, The Stepkids, Kimbra, and Pharoahe Monch. Additionally, in the last two years he successfully provided a jazz choral program for the 1st & 2nd Annual Jazz Festival of Xalapa, Mexico (resulting in a feature in “DownBeat Magazine”) as well as made his debut Montreal Jazz Festival and CMJ performances. J. Hoard's single, "Arctic", received excellent response in July '16 when Sofar Sounds premiered his live acoustic performance of the single. This year, his new single, "Sirens", was premiered on Okayplayer during Grammy week and went on to be featured on Noisey Radio (Beats1 Apple Music Station). It has since remained in rotation on the playlist as well as on Rockwood Music's February playlist. Lastly, J. Hoard is a recent two time Grammy recipient due to his songwriting contribution on Chance the Rapper's hit, "No Problem".
This year, J. Hoard will release a three volume EP that best showcases his versatile style. His new music video, "Debbie Downer" will be available for viewing pleasure this month. This is just the beginning of an amazing ascension.
