JT is influenced by soul/blues/pop artist that merge the old with the new like Jacob Banks, Jack Garratt and John Mayer. But he lists important Latin artists such as Juan Luis Guerra, Marc Anthony and Luis Miguel for keeping that Latin flame alive in his songwriting.
In 2018, JT is introducing himself to the world with an incredibly powerful and intricately dark first single, I Can Barely Breathe. This first release is a three minute and 20 second expression of power that deals with topics such as persecution, oppression and self-doubt but resolves into self-empowerment and freedom. Mixing modern pop melodies and beats with Latin-Caribbean chants and drums creates something truly unique.
