With law school books full of song lyrics, it was evident at graduation that Joseph Nevels (fka JSPH) always had an affinity for music. He is an amazing upcoming artist that is currently based in the LA area.
When Pharrell co-signed his first single it only propelled him to continue making rhythm soaked tracks. NPR Music quickly showed support and said he, “fits seamlessly into the world of D’ Angelo, Frank Ocean, and James Blake.”
Others soon caught on and he gained editorial playlist and press love from Fresh Finds, Spotify’s New Music Friday, Beats1 OTHERtone, KCRW and Newsweek Magazine.
Naturally the sync world followed as he landed with music placements on On My Block (Netflix), Queen Sugar (Oprah Network), and Wuthering High, it’s no coincidence that he’s gained millions of streams as an independent artist.
His newest work is his most raw and vulnerable yet. So much so that he brought back the vowels and is releasing it under his full name. The song is called “Safe” and when we listened to the track we love every second from beginning to end. His vocals have a relaxing feel that brings us to a place of comfort. The production isn’t too complex, but everything fits together so well that it is extremely satisfying and complements Joseph’s vocals well. Check out the track below.

Flow-bending artist aSanTIS discusses art, culture, and whether sound can solve the world’s problems in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month.
My interview with Amy Santis aka aSanTIS began in the most unexpected way. The Maryland-based flow-bending artist and lyrical storyteller came prepared to engage in conversation around questions I had posed – and she also brought one or two of her own thoughtful prompts based on her curiosities around my view of learning.
This practice of taking in her surroundings deeply through observation and inquiry has come naturally to aSanTIS ever since she was a young child. In terms of her early starts in music, she notes that she began as a discerning listener. “Just listening to music from my mom, on the radio, just being a consumer in the world of sound. But I think mainly, my mom has always loved dancing and listening to music, so that was sort of like second nature. We play music at gatherings, we play music in the car, and these songs are sort of like diaries that take us into a specific place.”
