My new album Jazzy AF has been serving up goals since its August 2020 release.
It hit number one chart position on renowned Jazziz Magazine‘s “Top 5 Inside Tracks” chart. I’ve been wanting to be in that magazine since public school so it was definitely a great moment!
The highly revered Soul and Rnb music site SoulTracks provided the worldwide premiere for my video “You Make Heaven” which they called “a slow jam that should get lovers snuggling a bit closer together on a warm Summer night.” They’ve been supporting me since my first release in 2008. Can’t give them enough thanks!
Music critique site Divide and Conquer provided a glowing review of the project which you read in full here.
“As a flutist, Kearns melds his expertise with the instrument with the flow of electronic beats, atmospheric synths and pulsating rhythms. What comes across is a blend of sounds that creates a soundscape that listeners can easily get lost in. Not merely an instrumental album, Jazzy AF sees the artist mixing genres and creating a new sound. Kearns’ command of the instrument is unmistakable.”
The Jazz World provided some love saying “There are only a few flautists out there, and Jef really stands above the crowd.”
As well as The Urban Music Scene and Smooth and Soul.
Producer Douglas Romanow and I have begun co-writing follow releases for 2021.
