R&B flautist Jef Kearns is out to show you exactly how the flute should be used in an R&B format. Jef is not a stranger to soul, hip hop or R&B. Imagine my surprise when I heard his cover of Soulja Boy’s “Turn My Swag on” – yes, he went and done did that. Surprised? You shouldn’t be. Jef has been reared on the above-mentioned genres of music since he was 10 years old. So it’s only natural that he has decided to jump in head first, with his flute in hand, to let you know that this is not a game and he’s ready to bring a little Soulfistication into your life.
Jef’s first album On The Level was a Soultracks favourite in 2009, and now his recent single “Play On” from the upcoming album, has already reached #7 on Amazon Japan R&B/Soul. And his original hip hop instrumental performance was chosen as the Top 20 YouTube auditions out of over 3700 submissions on Canada’s Got Talent. Not too shabby at all there, Jef.
