Straight out of Montreal comes 17-year old R&B/Hip-Hop rising star JT Soul with his debut EP “372 ; Velvet Tears,” . The project produced by Jei Bandit, is a fusion of RnB, trap and futuristic sounds that take on a dark, sombre tone.
The 372 ; Velvet Tears EP sees JT Soul painting a vivid and evocative picture of love, pain and drugs, which revolves around his youth, while continuing to honor his Montreal roots – from his name ‘JT Soul’ being inspired by the street he grew up on, Jean-Talon Street, to naming the EP after the ‘372’ night bus that rode through Jean-Talon Street, from one end of Montreal to the other.
Speaking about the inspiration behind his new EP, JT Soul says, “this ‘372 ; Velvet Tears’ EP details my sometimes youthful exuberant experience with love, drugs, and the streets of Montreal. The concept was conceived one night on the 372 Jean Talon night bus, and every song is a representation of my emotions and thoughts during the after hours of the night – I hope this record takes you back there with me”.
