J Holiday is said to be the new soulful street poet of 2007. His main focus is nothing else but to keep it real to the streets as well as to himself. He presents his music in a way that brings heart and soul in every song that he delivers.

While growing up in the tough streets of Washington D.C., J turned to his talent as a type of released therapy. By concentrating on his sound, he was able to escape from his well-known reality and enter into another world that offers a sense of tranquility.

Now that he’s in the limelight as a new R&B singer, it’s still a constant grind to break all barriers and create a household name for himself, as well as constantly face the negativity of music critics in the industry. “Although I’ve accomplished a lot of goals, I still feel that I’m constantly grinding,” explains J. “You can’t get too comfortable in one spot, because you never know when that spot that you’re standing on can fall.”

While growing up in D.C, J was raised by his preacher mother. Although she held strong beliefs, she still gave J his space in order for him to live his life as well as pave his own way into developing into manhood. “Yes, I was a church boy, but I was still sneaking out of the house and causing a little bit of trouble,” laughs J. “There’s always that curiosity of what’s over there, you know.”

This 23-year-old certainly conveys heart and soul. With influences that range from Jodeci to Michael Jackson, Otis Redding, Marvin Gaye and Sam Cooke, this cat is bringing something totally different to the game. “I call my music street-soul,” J explains. “It’s a mix of heart, soul and ghetto, when mixed up and served right, that creates a type of serene ghettoness.” With his album Back of My Lac, J presents a record that’s a soundtrack to his life-a soundtrack of the pain and hardship that he experienced in relationships and everyday life.

“I decided to name my album Back of My Lac because when I need time to myself and to think, I like to cruise in my Caddy,” admits J. “You know, just go somewhere and park and be alone with myself and my thoughts in which only I can hear. You feel me? That’s why I gave my album that title because I feel that it gives my fans the chance to know a piece of me. When they enter into the backseat of my Caddy, they have opened the door into my thoughts.”

It’s definitely unquestionable that J Holiday’s on his way to becoming the next big phenomenon in the world of R&B. With his sexiness and keep it real attitude, J has the tools to take his fans into a life-changing journey, one that unfolds in the back seat of his Cadillac.
