The state of Indiana has produced some amazing talent in music artists over the years and now has a new music son to brag about with his fresh new sound in the Hip-Hop genre. When I first heard his music I really loved his nostalgic sound of old school hip-hop, but his use of vocal inflection and hi-hat production made this album an entertaining choice.
I started with the track, “This Is Not A Love Song”. listening to this song I was completely taken aback because I thought I was listening to a slow melodramatic love song, but then as the song title states, this is not a love song and it threw me completely into an electronic dance mix that had me moving my body!!
I then jumped to the song Finally, truly an inspirational hit. When I sent Jaron an email asking for some insight into this song, he told he the following, “This song is a testament to my journey, for years I’ve wanted to perform hip-hop music but I was stopped so many times before due to life and the many struggles and turns life brings. After experiencing the death of my children, job loss and homelessness I kept pushing and pursuing my dream–even against parental wishes I kept working to make my dream of making music come true. Finally….it is real. Finally, I get to do what I love. Finally….I am here.
Jaron Marquis has a new fan in me and I truly suggest you add this new artist to your playlist, remember his name because you will be able to tell your friends you heard him first.
