2020 was an unprecedented year for everyone….
In January of 2019, J.T. began working on his album “Existence,” which was began out of necessity in needing to vent the struggles of losing his mother to cancer and brother to a car accident during a hard week in November of the previous year.
What began as an EP that was supposed to cover the struggle between dark emotions and re-building the label in San Diego turned to a full album as the content kept flowing. Often dubbed a selfish album by J.T. album due to it being primarily for self-reflection, and not tailored to the listener, Existence will prove to touch areas of life that most mainstream music doesn’t.
In the upcoming interview, J.T. explains why he postponed the album release due to the 2020 pandemic, and what has changed in outlook and his artistry. Stay tuned…
What’s good everyone?
That greeting holds a lot more heaviness than it used to. Things are heavy nowadays. Some days many of us are working harder to
find the good in some of the horrific things we’ve been seeing this year.
Many of you might remember the song “In Loco Parentis” from the Breaking Chainz Mixtape that was released in 2017. I wrote In Loco Parentis, the title which I grabbed from legal jargon that meant “of a teacher or other adult responsible for children) in the place of a parent.” in response to the horrific killings of unarmed black men, women, and children during that time.
After taking a two year hiatus with his own music, J.T. Pender is back with a new single molded out of the quarantine. Read Between The Lines is a rugged and unfiltered take on the current climate with COVID-19.
