Jacqualynn “J∆i” Harris is a unique personality unlike any one in the world of media today. The Denver native is a poet, film-maker, radio personality, visionary primed to take the world by storm with her influential voice and artistic flair.
Jai Harris’ latest compilation is “DISCONNECTED-Volume 1” is produced by Grammy nominated producer Vudu Spellz, responsible for Ludacris’ and Jamie Foxx’s hit “Georgia” and “Warning” on Ludacris’ Grammy Award Winning “Release Therapy Album”.
“The juxtaposition of language administered by Harris over whimsical melodies is absolutely vibrant. The song “Smoke Signals” embodies the essence of everything poetry should be; it’s provocative yet playful; serious yet seductive; brutally honest laced with an endearing delivery. Harris exposes the flaws in human nature and society in a way that urges you to thank her. Jai models verbal versatility elaborating on an array of topics; delving into religion, romance, and emotional scars endured through life’s journey. The knowledge laid is remarkably relatable; thanks to Jai’s inviting intonation, classic familiar old school beats, and her obvious personal connection to every word she expertly utters”.
