Los Angeles Horror Competition x Terror At Camp Creek x Jahah












So yesterday I found out that I won "Best Score for a Horror Film" at the Los Angeles Horror Competition! This means I'm officially "legit" and I can add "Film Composer" to my resume with out looking back.

I haven't been scoring short films that long but it's definitely something I look forward to continuing. The inspiration is different and the actual creativity of it all is very challenging. I've that with scoring films...Less is more. There's a minimalist approach to scoring horror films. I'm thankful that director Tony Reames believed in me enough to even make an attempt at doing all the above. It was a great experience!

Alright, I'm getting back to work now! Lot's to do and rarely enough time.

One Love!

Rakim x Jahah x Tony Reames x Dickens



















It's been a long time since my last post but I vowed to get back into the swing of things and I'm going to hold myself accountable to update this site as much as possible. There are a lot of great things going on in my little world and I would like to share these moments in hopes that I can inspire someone else.
Last year I took a little time off to re-think my approach to blogging, creating music, and being involved in the music industry. I didn't actually stop working, I just stopped doing things the way I'd always been doing them (for so long). I needed some type of change and some new inspiration and motivation. It took me awhile to find my muse but as you can see from the pics above...I've been out and about and finding new energy! I'm a little overwhelmed with work but I'm excited for what's to come in the near future. God is great!

So as you can see, I had the opportunity to interview and meet the one and only god emcee (Rakim). Yep! I've been doing some behinds the scenes work with director Tony Reames and I've been afforded the opportunity to meet many of the artists I idolized growing up in the 90s. It's been quite a roller coaster ride and I'm elated and thankful for all the chances God has provided me throughout the years.

Meeting Rakim and actually having the opportunity to build with him was an honor. I gotta tell, Rakim is a very humble man and he took the time to greet people and sign as many autographs as he could. I was truly amazed by his patience and realness (for lack of better words).

For the young kids out there who idolized the Future's, Young Thugger's, Drakes, and Migos...Rakim is one of the reasons why these cats have the platform they do. He helped pave the way for all of us and pushed Hip Hop to new heights! Do your history and you'll understand why I'm so charged up about meeting one of Hip Hop's living legends.

It's Real!

Jahah - Always Remember Edison

Tomorrow marks the one year anniversary of my big brother Edison Tyrone Brown's death. There's not a week that goes by that I do not think of him and wish he was still here. His absence still seems surreal. I can't believe he's gone.

On a brighter note, I wrote a song to honor him entitled "Always Remember Edison". This record is on my latest album Nostalgia BLACK and is the final track I recorded.

I miss you bro! RIP Edison Tyrone Brown

Jahah "Soul Music" x Breaking Artist (UK)


Big up to http://breakingartists.co.uk/ for supporting and providing your boy with a little UK love! 

It's amazing how much more the good folks over in Europe appreciate soul music. They (Europeans) get behind artists and musicians that can really sing and play instruments. They appreciate good music that comes from the soul and isn't necessarily all about money, cars, and hoes. I'm not saying that all Europeans vibe to the same beat or style of music but from what I can see and tell (from touring oversea's), a lot of people on this side of the globe have a fever for traditional black soul.

Anyhow, the above is all subjective and for all intensive purposes...my own selfish opinion. It is what it ya'll. I realize that we (the people) don't have any control over the images and sounds that ultimately become national (or global) phenomenons.  Dead Prez what's proclaimed: It's Bigger Than Hip Hop! Ya' damn right! IT's bigger than us all...

One love to Break Artists in the UK!

Spread Love!!!

Jahah x SOULTRACKS

It's always nice to receive a review from a reputable source that actually digs what I do musically. In this particular case, Soul Tracks is the source and they have provided me with a "First Look" on their website which is pretty cool (in my book).

I'm on Soul Tracks website quite often so it's an honor for me to take up some space on their website. I enjoy the work that they put out into the world and hope my name (and music) will be a main stay on the Soul Tracks website. The staff at Soul Tracks really supports artists and bands with great musicianship and creativity. That's rare in today's watered down music industry.

Anyhow, I'd like to point you to Soul Tracks to read the Jahah review and watch my new video "Soul Music".

Make sure you spread love today!

Soul Music (Official Music Video)



Growing up I was exposed to all kinds of music. My dad loves jazz and could care less if someone is actually singing over a bed of instrumentation. I believe it is the musicianship that he truly enjoys and I feel like my pops provided me with my musical foundation.

On the other hand my mother was (and still is) more into the Motown sound and the artists and groups of that time. To this day I can still recall her playing the Temptations and groups like The Delfonics over and over again. This was the kind of music my mother would play while cleaning the house every Saturday and ultimately it is this genre of music that inspires me in our contemporary times.

Soul music is what I truly feel and I my goal is to continue making music that is honest to me and provides the listen with real emotion. I don't ever want to create music that isn't me and doesn't not represent what I stand for. Don't get me wrong, I want to make money doing what I'm passionate about but I do not want to sell my soul for the almighty dollar. I'm about the music first!

With the above being said...today I present to you my new music video for my song "Soul Music"! This song is off of my recent release Nostalgia BLACK and can be found here on iTunes. 

In this video I feature my father, my mother, and a host of friends and family that have supported me throughout my life and musical journey. I'm proud of this song and the visuals that accompany it. This creation has taken me and the director Tony Reames a long time to fulfill. However, we completed our mission and I believe our time is now!

Lastly, if you like what you see and hear...please support me and my efforts by purchasing the song via iTunes. I'd love to give everything I do away but black music has become very disposable and we as independent artists work very hard to provide the world with positive vibes and good music.

No more marginal results! I thank you in advance and wish you all a very Happy New Year! 

Spread Love!
