Meet artist/musician Cha’ves Jamall, based in New York City & Paris. I just came across him online today and I’m pulled in and want to know/see more! Listen to his new track for “Field Trip” below.
Watch Cha’ves Jamall perform “Field Trip” at Sofar New York on April 2nd, 2016 / Sofar Sounds
Afropunk premiered his song “Field Trip” and reported:
“Check out multi-talented Harlem-based trip-hop/punk/spoken word artist Cha’ves Jamall’s witty, dark, and somehow still sexy single, ‘Field Trip’. The conceptual track is a melodic blend of trip-hop, experimental punk and spoken word through which Jamall introspectively explores gender identity, racial inequality and mental health. “It’s been a trip being someone who considers himself an extrovert but also suffers from anxiety and depression. I feel like when I decided that I wasn’t going to hide this from people but actually make it a part of my work, I instantly felt stronger and more able to cope. I still have bad days but don’t have the anxiety of people not “knowing”,” Jamall tells AFROPUNK.”
