Jef Kearns has had a piece of metal in his hand, and his purpose in his mind for over two thirds of his life.

Hey everyone. Just wanted to take a moment to update you on what has happened and what is happening.
First, we’ll go with “what is happening” (I like to live in the moment I guess.) I am working on my third album which will be my first 100% instrumental R&B endeavor. I’m essentially down to mixing and mastering (save recording one song that has already been written.)
Jef Kearns and Slakah the Beatchild teamed up for a funk driven single ("Play On") after Jef was called in to do the flute session work on the Slakadeliqs album, "The Other Side of Tomorrow." Leaving no sonic stone unturned they took it to Tom Coyne (Michael Jackson, Ne-Yo, Kool and the Gang) for mastering. Upon finishing Tom remarked, "Jef, you sure know how to put soul into a record." "Play On" is the track you may wish would live up to its namesake and never end.
