Jalen N'Gonda's jazz-infused soul and funk sound secures our Track of the Day
Originally from Maryland, USA, 22-year-old Jalen N'Gonda has chosen Liverpool as his base to develop his music career.
At the age of 11, he was inspired by his father's collection of jazz, hip-hop, and soul records and began exploring music. Since moving to Liverpool, Jalen has sold out headline shows across the UK, Germany and Switzerland. Returning with his new single, 'We Fell out of Love', he has teased the sounds expected on his debut EP.
With modern jazz-infused soul and funk, he has crafted a fantastic edge to his sound, with surf-rock guitars, keyboard backing and infectious energy.
With just under 500,000 playlist followers and a growing monthly listener base of 80,000, Jalen N'Gonda is certainly a name to keep an eye on (Instrumental). His debut EP is expected in early summer 2018.
