Producer/multi-instrumentalist Jerk teams up with rapper TruthCity on his new single titled “Persistence”. The laid back, jazz-infused record has a mellow smooth vibe and thrives on TruthCity’s honest, raw lyrics that everyone can relate to.
“Persistence”‘ is the second track from Jerk’s upcoming beat tape, ‘Pressing On’, get it on all platforms here.
Jerk is brainchild of composer, producer, and multi instrumentalist Joshua Kinney. He began playing saxophone around ten and producing beats around fifteen, studying jazz at Purchase College under the guidance of musicians like Jon Faddis, Charles Blenzig, Gary Smulyan, and Ralph Lalama. Though studying music performance, he kept up with producing and began working with lyricists. Searching for the connection between producing beats and playing jazz is how Jerk was conceived.
