J Tizzle: “The Chill Zone Vol 3” – The taste is smooth and distinguishable!

As living things, we need a steady supply of certain ingredients to survive. In music, the formula is undeniably similar. A song requires both rhythm and pitch. For the musically hungrier amongst us, these ingredients are not enough. We need to add extras, such as mood, atmosphere, emotion and groove. Unfortunately, even with the proper ingredients and extras the results are not always as expected. Stagnancy spreads within the craftsman, as well as a lack of skill or emotion. Luckily one, by the name of J Tizzle (Jeffery Townsend Sr.), avoids these annoying traits. Within his songbook exists all of

Heavy AmericA: “Motor Honey (Peace)” – It’s rock. Pure and simple.

I’ve always believed in my dreams, but it’s magical to finally be able to see it come to life. I’ll never stop making music, and this award has just given me that extra confidence that will help me live and balance both my dreams, music and medicine.

Music is, the best medicine after all!

I thank my family, my loved ones and my supporters who believed in #meronation, Lawrence Soosai, Alan Thoo, the beautiful cast and crew behind Heart of Steel’s MV, SKOWT and VIMA. None of this would have been possible without all of you, all my love to each and everyone of you.”
