Moody, authentic vibes is how Josiah Thomas describes his music. Thomas, or better known as JT5K, is the hip-hop and R&B sensation on the rise from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. They call him a hidden gem, but his time has only yet to come.
“I want people to feel when they listen to my music. I try to create music for moods and different times of the day,” JT5K said about his music. His latest project, Forever & Always, has been deemed “midnight driving music.” The creative clash of emotions that he captured on his last project helped him earn over 100,000 streams in the first two weeks of its release. JT5K currently averages a respectable 50,000 monthly listeners, but that is likely to go up as he continues to drop more tracks. His recent success has started drawing the attention of major record labels as well; however, JT5K is still independent and happy about it. “I am currently independent, right now there’s no better time to be an Indy artist!” JT5K said.
New music is on the horizon for JT5K. “I’m writing about my life and I’m getting way more personal about myself,” JT5K commented. He continued, “Right now I am going to drop either December or in the next year.” Likely referring to early 2021 as a release date, there has been no such date set as he is still in the creative process for his upcoming tracks.
