Jewel Carter, better known in the music industry as "JC" was born and raised in Kansas City, Kansas.
JC’s sound is raw funk at its best with a heavier edge which makes his sound unique like no other.
As a lead vocal, while playing bass, you’re sure to see a LIVE show you’ll never forget! You’ll experience being taken back in time with the greatest Funk/Soul/R&B hits using his own style and technique to present day including his Have U Forever album hits. This is why those in the music industry across the states and abroad have dubbed JC “The New King of Funk”.
His entire family was always involved in the community whether it was at church, school or home. His mother and father both were gifted singers in their home town church choir where his roots and love for music were firmly established. These factors inevitably became the essence and vision of what JC is about today, an extraordinary artist, vocalist, and musician. He thrives on the world seeing and hearing his gift and then seeing HIM. JC is a dedicated respected artist driven to succeed with music from his heart.
JC’s first love is the bass guitar, but has proven his proficiency as a vocalist, drummer, keyboardist, writer, arranger, composer, and producer…. a true artist. In over fifteen years of entertaining he’s toured and performed with iconic groups and artists such as The Gap Band, Roger Troutman, Teena Marie, Bootsy Collins, Gladys Knight, Charlie Wilson, a good friend of many years, Freddie Jackson, Tech9, Rome, Chilites, just to name a few.
As a studio musician JC has laid down bass tracks for artists such as TUPAC and SHAQ. He has produced two motion picture soundtracks: Pharcyde's "Can't Stop the Music" from the movie Mr. Good Burger, and "Taste" from The Sixth Man.
