Step back in time with J-Mo On The Beat’s delightful EP, “Love Letters,” where 50s and early 60s music meet alternative and indie rock. This charming collection of tracks takes listeners on a nostalgic journey, infused with tender vocals and a mid-range allure that transports us to a bygone era.
Hailing from Saint Paul, Minnesota, singer-songwriter Jamie Passewe (J-Mo On The Beat) draws inspiration from legendary artists like Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, Cliff Richard, and Billy Fury.
The EP opens with a captivating poem and spoken word poetry, setting the stage for the musical journey ahead. The second track, “I Wanna Call On You,” instantly throws us into a rockin’ 50s-style ambiance. “Evening Whispers,” the third track, takes a more serious and somber turn.
“Teardrops Everyday,” the fourth track, explores themes of heartbreak and societal pressures upon a man with raw honesty in his lyrics: “She calls me poor and less of a man.” J-Mo’s ability to weave important narratives into his music adds depth to the EP.
