Born of Jamaican-Chinese descent in London, Gak Jonze grew up the youngest of six raised by his loving mother in a very creative and musically diverse household, whined on Lovers Rock/Reggae, 70’s funk, Mowtown, gospel/soul and hip hop whilst growing up in the 80’s/90’s… theres no wonder why, he is a multi genre artist.
His self produced debut album Intelligent Mess (June 2013) saw Gak Jonze openly reveal his struggling relationship with his father in his controversial rap ballad aptly named The Truth (Track13) emphasizing the challenges and effects it had on him growing up with a father who was never around. The album was clearly in it’s infancy production wise, but with a closer listen; the voice of a clever yet troubled teen, figuring out his path became abundantly clear in Wayward child (track 14), showing signs of his “intelligence” with the “Mess” he was dealing with.
A 17 province China tour, some online courses in music production and 4 years later; Gak Jonze is back and getting set to release his new album sweetly titled “Audible ice Creams” openly exploring his views on love, current affairs and the music business.
The first single taken from the new album features a much brighter and accomplished Gak, teaming up with Stefan Malinowski on hook You Gave Me Life (Nov 2016) a track he dedicated to his mother, celebrating her patience with him, her belief, her strength, her love …the official music video went viral! Made up of Gak Jonze fans from literally all over the world, who sent in quick clips from their phones saying “I Love You Mum”. Even former west Indies Cricket Captain Chris Gayle got in on the video. The video was also picked up and featured by Brightside.com! The album is in its final writing stages and will be available later this year. Already it loosely resembles elements of Wiz Khalifa, Aloe Blacc, Akon, Calvin Harris & Sean Paul….all the way to Jimi and Dylan. This album simply is; an “Audible Ice Cream”.
The latest installment from Gak Jonze is Falling up (June 2017) recorded whilst on tour in Dubai, Falling up was produced by Gak Jonze with executive producer and friend Patrick Elsey (A local Musician) in his mobile studio Gak put together in his hotel room. Pat also has credits on the viral You gave Me Life release (December 2016) Gak Jonze tells the story of his recent success and what it took for him to get where he is today, taking the risk and breaking away from the cycle to venturing into the unknown. Encouraging like minded individuals to work hard, keep pushing and to simply believe, especially when no one else does. The song cleverly mentions his love for his ‘day ones’ who always believed in him, and celebrating a life long bond.
The new single from the British born phenom Gak Jonze couldn’t have come at a greater time. As a new era in music takes over the charts and youtube, his positively uplifting, YOLO no nonsense approach is somewhat refreshing.
