About the Artist

The turning point came for K'Jon while writing music in a Los Angeles hotel room. After years of putting out independent releases while working a day job to support his family in Detroit, he had to figure out his future in the music industry.

"I was missing my family something terrible," says K'Jon. "I was sitting in that room, wondering if writing songs was worth being away from my daughter. I was really going through it."

Singing from the age of eight, K'Jon had been dabbling in the business for years. What started out as a hobby was beginning to morph into a career. In 2004, he had the honor of having his song, "Miami," featured on the soundtrack for 2Fast 2Furious. He opened for everyone from Ludacris and Ne-Yo to Raheem DeVaughn. He released a few independent albums that became popular in his hometown. Things were coming together.

"But it was happening slowly," K'Jon explains. "I'd accomplished quite a bit. But it still felt like my moment hadn't come. I saw a lot of folks around me really take off. I was trying to figure out when it would be my time."

K'Jon began pouring out his feelings into a song. Working so hard in the music business felt like being in a raft in the middle of the ocean. Would his ship finally come in? That idea became the song "On The Ocean." And as soon as he finished writing and then recording a demo version of the song, he knew he had something special.

"I knew I could sell that song to an established artist," says K'Jon. "But a friend told me that if I sold that song--I'd regret it for the rest of my career."

"On The Ocean" is now on its way to becoming a classic. And the warm reception he received from the song convinced K'Jon that his destiny was to entertain as a singer-songwriter.

After a decade of working hard, his ship has come in. And it's his time.

Detroit's K'Jon introduces his full-length major label debut, I GET AROUND, a superb collection with nods to both his contemporaries, including Kem and Robin Thicke, and his predecessors, like fellow Detroiter Marvin Gaye.

K'Jon knows how to set a scene. His album unfolds like a film, following the trials and tribulations of a young man who is determined to live and love fully and completely.

"After The Club" is a perfect example of his philosophy. Picture the hazy after-hours during last-call at a club for the grown-and-sexy. As phone numbers are exchanged and plans are made to hit up the next spot, K'Jon's "After The Club" is the perfect theme music--subtle and sexy.

While K'Jon's music is well suited to Detroit's ballroom culture, the appeal is much wider. Whether you're holding up the wall in a Brooklyn club, roller-blading in Santa Monica or two-stepping in Chicago, K'Jon's music fits.

"That was my goal with this album," explains K'Jon. "I wanted to make an album you could listen to from beginning to end--no matter how old you are or where you're from."

What separates K'Jon from his contemporaries, besides his lilting vocals, are the production values on I Get Around. You can hear acoustic guitar on the sweeping "Feels Like Love," and the grandeur of a theatrical ballad on "I'll Never Forget."

The music, handled in-house by K'Jon's production team, is real soul music--the kind that speaks to an earlier time in our music history. From lively instrumentation to lush vocal arrangements, K'Jon does the Motor City proud with his approach to classic rhythm and blues.

On the intensive ballads, K'Jon's vocals are seamlessly blended together to achieve a choir-like harmony sound. And while he's a natural balladeer, K'Jon also knows how to make a crowd move on his midtempo tracks.

Album highlights include "Fa Sho," a dedication to finding the perfect woman and "Fly Away," a unique concept in which K'Jon imagines himself rising about haters like a superhero.

"That's one of my favorite tracks," says K'Jon. "There's a line on that song, I got superpowers/I won't be devoured that really explains how I feel right now. Things are coming together for me and I'm getting the opportunity to share my music with the world. It's a very exciting time."

When asked about his personal favorites on his upcoming release, K'Jon can't choose one.

"That's too hard!" he says with a laugh. "But I can say that a track like "This Time" could become a bigger hit than "On The Ocean." It's very special to me. And it's one of those songs that people have been responding to."

K'Jon's dedication to his craft is helping him to amass a legion of fans of all ages.

"A woman left a comment on a website," says K'Jon. "She said she was 58 and she loved my music. And then of course, I perform in the clubs and there are teenagers and young adults singing along. In this industry, they want you to pick a demographic. But sometimes, your audience chooses you. And that's a great feeling."

K'Jon, who counts Anthony Hamilton, Jazmine Sullivan and John Mayer among his own favorites, is poised to take his rightful places in the canon of legendary R&B singers and songwriters.

And while it has been a long journey, it's been worth the wait.

"I'm humbled by the support I've received. I'm honored to be able to do what I love. And I'm grateful for all the blessings I've received thus far," says K'Jon. "I can't wait to see what happens next."

Product Description

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME!! August 9, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I rarely find cd's worthy of purchasing. However, since I simply fell in love with the "On The Ocean" single, I decided to give this new artist a try. Believe me when I say I am not disappointed. From the first song, "I Get Around" to the last track, all of KJon's songs are awesome. I have been listening to the CD for almost 24 hours straight!!! LOL
You will not be disppointed either, if you buy this wonderful CD.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice Voice, A Couple of Nice Songs. August 11, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I rushed out to get this CD on it's drop date and well to be honest, I am a little disappointed. K'Jon has a great & soulful voice but his songs are a little empty for me. I can definitely see why "On the Ocean" was chosen as the single cause it's the best track here. I also like "This Time" it's lyrically nice and has a jazzy feel to it and was the first song that I put on repeat. I don't want to knock this brother cause I got a feeling his future productions will be more on point.

4.0 out of 5 stars K'Jon is awesome November 18, 2009

I think this style of music is appropriate and is easy listening. His voice reminds me of BeBe Winans. My favorite song is the Ocean which is why I bought the album. I liked the songs and I think everyone will be surprised by this album.

2.0 out of 5 stars "I Get Around" gets two stars October 26, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Like many people, I heard "On The Ocean" as well as "This Time" and wondered who is this K'Jon? So his album has arrived and it's called "I Get Around". Before you start asking questions, the title track is about how he is happy to get some attention and airplay after years of paying dues...sorry, it's not about sex. So I got the album and here's the problem...while he can do ballads effortlessly, when he does the uptempo songs, he just sounds awkward and out of his element. The songs "Doin' It Big" and "What's Really Good?" are songs for the clubs that sound rather pedestrian. I wanted to like the album, but only the singles and the ballads stand out. Hopefully, he will do better on the sophomore effort.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome CD "I get around" by K'Jon December 1, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
With new artist, it is always a risk buying new CDs. I utilized the preview links and heard some of the songs. The "I get around" CD will not dissapoint the RB and neo-soul music lovers. At one point, the songs started to sound a bit similar but it appears to be the intent. As the CD flows well and makes for good riding music.
I enjoyed this CD and hope you do as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Welcome to a new soulful balladeer. October 4, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Welcome to newcomer to the music scene, K-Jon. Just what today's music needed a new soulful balladeer. When I first heard the hit single, On the Ocean, I thought it was BeBe Winans. Who knew it was some new dude called K-Jon? Who can't identify with a song with a message...undoubtedly we can all can relate to the idea of good fortune looming just over the horizon. Two great ballads on this cd.
