August is all about JT Soul!
At his young age of 21, JT Soul has already made a huge statement in Montréal’s scene by use of his signature blend of Pop/R&B with a touch of Hip-Hop, showcased vividly on his 2019 EP and marking a milestone for his career. The Latin Canadian artist, given name Gianni Rivera, is no stranger to the stage though has evolved musically since his debut at 15 years old and achieved a widely versatile vocal range. Growing up in a Peruvian-Portuguese home in the Saint-Leonard borough, JT pulls his initials from the street he grew up on, Jean-Talon Est.
JT Soul has been dominating lately, with his successful 2019 EP titled Goodbye, Lightspeed making a lot of waves. Before his 21st birthday the artist reached career milestones including co-signs by notorious media like Complex, Vice and more, a live performance on Global News, as well as debuting at #10 on France’s iTunes R&B charts, #1 for two weeks straight on campus radios and weekly spins on Virgin Radio Montréal with MC Mario. JT is now prepping for his next project’s rollout, set for a Spring 2021 release and, if the success of his last project has anything to say for him, we can expect great things for young JT.
