Singer/Songwriter J. Phoenix kicks off a national promotional tour this week in celebration of his recently released single âFor the People.â Known for penning hits for Nancy Wilson, the late Tupac Shakur and Michelle Wright, J. Phoenix put his pad down this year for the release of his debut album âThe Masterpiece.â Likened to Anthony Hamilton and Eric Benet, J. Phoenix issues a soulful delivery throughout his new album led by the single âFor the People.â Produced the by The Heatmakerz (Lil Wayne, Camron), J. Phoenix says “This song is about getting people back to happy, and reminding them that regardless of how the world is changing our souls never die.” An ASCAP/Sammy Cahn Award winner for Excellence in Lyrics, J. Phoenixâs âThe Masterpieceâ addresses everything from the power of individuals to make a difference (“Heart of a Solder”), to heartbreak (“Just Another Memory”), to the negative views often directed toward African-American men (“Just Like You” and “Maybe One Day”). The singerâs soulful debut has been heralded as one of this years best albums, according to Taximusic.com the album is “a winner and real crowd pleaser with good melodies and a great message.” “Ultimately, for me, music is about healing. That’s my goal always,â says Phoenix whose album is available now through digital retailers including iTunes.
