J.R.O.B. is an artist out of Chicago who is making his name known here in NYC. He’s refreshing – someone who brings high-level musicality and intelligence to his deeply personal views of the world and his own life experiences. He’s authentic, and is never predictable. Every song he makes is a journey full of surprises, driving beats, along with a true, relevant message.
J.R.O.B. was in Harlem at 67 Orange recently, and the atmosphere, of this wonderful, historical speakeasy inspired him to write the above account of his life experiences that led him to the moment he experienced there. He was staying at Aloft Harlem at the time, where the song was written. I asked him how it all came about: 67 Orange Street is a personal record that was sculpted at the Aloft Hotel in Harlem during a dark period of time in my life. ..the song was inspired by 67 Orange, a quaint, cozy little speakeasy that was invisible to the average eye on Frederick Douglass Blvd. in Harlem. Its array of beautifully prepared, classy and tasteful specialty cocktails, and southern style chicken served as a source of comfort during an already difficult time. The hook was created as a way of saying that I will not go down without a fight. I will remain powerful even in my darkest days.
So my friends, you heard it here. Keep an eye out for J.R.O.B. He is destined to achieve high levels of success. He’ll return to the city soon. I’ll keep you posted about his upcoming shows. Please know that the above song contains a little adult content. Enjoy, and please let me know what you think!
