Kevin “KJ” Jacoby began his journey in New York, studying jazz with world-renowned bassists Gerald Veasley and Lincoln Goines, before beginning a career in NYC as a sideman. He soon fell in with some of the best up and coming musicians in the city, including Keith Carlock (John Mayer, Steely Dan), Tom Guarna (Chick Corea), and Zach Danziger (Randy Brecker).
Fast forward to 2016 and KJ has wandered a bit from jazz, touring the world with pop darlings Cecilia, a wild ride that would eventually bring him full circle—back in New York and working on an album of his own with legendary audio engineer Scott Hull (Jay Z, Sting, Dave Matthews).
The Oddysy : KJ + DJ Johnny Juice, an electro-organic fusion where layered harmonies coalesce over waves of synth-augmented bass, punctuated by effortlessly intricate turntable flourishes.
A vibrant framework; a funky foundation ready to be stretched and spun beyond studio boundaries by a pantheon of power players.
A journey you only take when you trust your guides.
