It was requested I learn this for a bride’s wedding entrance recently.   It is a beautiful piece!!!  I can see why it is the most streamed Bollywood soundtrack on YouTube.

Coast to Coast AM is the one radio show that has been a constant in my life since I was in public school. Syndicated on over 600 stations with over 2.75 million listeners a week I know I’m not alone.

It deals primarily with paranormal activity, conspiracy theories and guests who fall out of the box of what you’d hear from mainstream media.

I have always been a late night person and often put it on just to listen in the dark for hours until I manage to fall asleep.

It was a great moment to hear my name and my song being announced by a person whose voice has been such a part of my life. Listen to the featured song Groove Ballet here.

 

Love this track and performing with a full band … so this is the perfect combination.   Thanks to The DNA Project for backing me up!

Jef Kearns’ latest release sees his flute “Breathe” new life into the song of the same namesake as well as his song “Don’t Make Me Wait” by adding a Chinese flute part performed by Lipeng Wu (written by Harlin Sun.)  Both compositions were a part of his Amazon bestseller album, Soulfisticated.

“These songs were originally written and recorded at a time when I lost one of the loves of my life. Don’t Make Me Wait could well have been truncated from ‘Don’t make me wait for you to come back.’ I wrote the melody to this song. Breathe is more of a near resignation to the loss with a slight lingering of longing for past romance. The vocalist on the original recording (Lisa Michelle) wrote the melody and lyric. I recorded this alternate instrumental version because that is how I perform the song at shows. I also wanted to showcase on record the emotion I attach to it from the situation I was in.”

Breathe releases on all digital platforms on March 22nd. 2019.

PRESS RELEASE

Flautist Jef Kearns is a rare talent. Featured in XXL Magazine for his cover of Warren G’s “Regulate.” An Amazon Japan best seller (alongside Janelle Monae) with his album of originals, Soulfisticated. Top 10 on the UK Soul Chart for a month with his recent EP, The Flute, and tweeted by the renowned Jamal Ahmed (WCLK, Atlanta “S.O.U.L. Of Jazz”) as “Probably the dopest flautist in the game right now!”

It only serves right that his first full production cover is of equally rare magnitude: the Beverly Hills Cop Theme “Axel F.” An instrumental that bested the usual “vocally dominated” charts for 19 weeks, reaching number 2 on the UK Singles Chart and number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US.

With production by Douglas Romanow (producer for Kinnie Star, and engineer for Justin Bieber and Tyga) and mastering by Sterling Sound’s Chris Gehringer (Rihanna, Drake, Wu-Tang, Madonna) Jef Kearns gives Axel F new breath by embracing elements of Reggaeton and Dance Hall.
