Born to an African American father and Latina mother, JM first picked up a guitar at the tender age of 11. Inspired by greats like Nat “King” Cole, Wes Montgomery and Jimi Hendrix, he began the mash up of these sounds which has always influenced and shaped his personal style/brand. By 17, he was the guitarist for the Rap/Rock group Proper Grounds, a pioneer of that genre in the 90’s that influenced bands like Limp Bizkit and ICP; they were first signed to Madonna’s Maverick Records. Surprisingly enough, J Mosley stepped away from music temporarily as an adult and sought to establish a career as a first responder in the fire service by being hired on as an Emergency Medical Technician, before promoting to Sergeant with the Los Angeles Police Department where he served for six years. However, it was his passion for music which was being under serviced that prompted him to resign and pursue his musical talents full time. J Mosley’s versatility lends to him participating on projects of all genres Rock, Pop, R&B, HipHop, Jazz and Latin sounds. In 2013 The J Mosley Experience was conceived, forming a band the JME All Stars who started touring and playing jazz festivals in California, Arizona and establishing residency with Arts Brookfield. What began as a Contemporary Jazz band quickly garnered the moniker of Fusion Group. Among his most recent accomplishments he has become a notable performer at the NAMM conventions in Los Angeles and most recently Nashville as a solo artist, also a perming artist at the Gardena Jazz Festival. The honed skills of this multitalented guitarist, producer and songwriter are displayed on his first JME EP Under the Sun released in early 2015. He’s currently working on the follow up untitled EP due to be released by year’s end. J Mosley delivers an array of explosive sultry sounds and authentic elements of musicianship. He considers himself a “Technician of Emotion, an artist with tons of expression both in studio and LIVE!” J Mosley is the embodiment of BLUES LATIN SOUL JAZZ! The extraordinarily talented Contemporary Latin/Blues/Soul/Jazz guitarist J Mosley is on intimate terms with his instrument. A native of Los Angeles, this musician was formally educated and impressively earned his BFA degree from the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston. However it’s his experiences sharing the stage with musical legends like Peter White, Everett Harp and Paul Jackson, Jr. that has garnered him the industry respect he so well deserves and distribution through Top Notch/InGrooves /Universal Music groups.
