#sxsw #J.Pinder


Listen to Never No

J. Pinder has accomplished an extraordinary amount for such a
young artist. He has worked with the cream of Seattle hip hop (Jake
One, Vitamin D, Kuddie Fresh) and he has worked with characters
such as Guilty Simpson. Pinder has made guest appearances on
releases by Rhymesayers, and has been written up by both local
press and heavy hitters such as URB and Okay Player. That’s so far...
and he’s twenty two years old.

Such a fine resume alone would be astounding but J. Pinder has
something else - something that eclipses these worldly accomplishments. J. Pinder's delivery, presence, and style suggest an understanding of the musical forms, of hip hop and beyond, that far
exceeds his years on earth. His charismatic condence and ability to
tell complex stories in a poetic manner - but without mincing words
and overwhelming the listener - intimate an artist that is well
rounded, well listened, well versed and mature. His wide range of
content, from the boisterous to the solemn, is always interwoven
with his own very particular voice of strength and quiet grace. In a
word J. Pinder is unique.
