FRESH: ‘Redo’ – J-Line

J-Line wants to “Redo”

J-LINE is a vocal/songwriter/co-producer based in New York City. His music has garnered over 500,000 streams close to one million YouTube views and he was recently featured in USA Today as one of the nation’s leading LGBTQ advocates. J-LINE is an anti bullying advocate that has visited over 1500 schools throughout the US, inspiring young people to stand upagainst injustice and truly be themselves.

His new single, “Redo”, was recorded in January 2020 and produced by J-LINE and Electropoint. “Redo” is a mid-tempo track about wanting a do over with the greatest ex you ever had. J-LINE tells us “It’s inspired by that feeling I think we all have to redo a situation with an ex and start over. Maybe somehow we can get it right this time”. J-LINE adds, “The song is about lying in bed, late at night, thinking about your ex and wondering if they still think about you too. Can they hear you as you cry for them? Are they wanting a love “redo” the same way you do. Is a ‘redo’ even possible?”.

The song was written and recorded in about three hours while J-Line says the lyrics just flowed out of him one day in the studio and once he got going, the song began to write itself. He adds: “It was very instinctual in that way. We almost let the song write itself and tell us what it wanted to be. In a world that can sometimes feel dark, I want people to listen to my music and feel inspired, happy or hopeful that they too can beheard and have a voice. I want to speak for those who can not speak for themselves”.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
