JLE, also known as Jennifer Louise Edison, is a 22 year old singer/songwriter from Detroit, Michigan who recently began her venture into the world of R&B music with her project entitled “That’s Me”. Her debut album consists of songs all written by herself and has reviewers saying that her “voice courts the elements of R&B, hip-hop and rock melody to come up with a debut album that you can tell aspires to reach the massive ear reach of Michael Jackson land. – Tamara Harris, Manhunt.com”.
Her debut album entitled “That’s Me” is the first project on board her independent label The Song of Songs Records Inc. This project has currently been pre-released online exclusively, at online retailers such as Amazon.com, Cdbaby.com, JLEMUSIC.com and more. The album from start to finish was written by JLE, who believes writing to be an essential part of her artistry. “In all of my songs I aspire to convey a message to my listener. I like to write about everyday life as well as the things people don’t necessarily think about and in ways maybe they don’t think about on a day to day basis.” This album seeks to take its listener through different emotions and maybe even down memory lane as the lyrics tend to relate to life situations. The album has an old school feel with a very modern flare, that reaches deep into the smoother side of R&B and hip hop.
JLE began singing at a young age and comes from a singing family from which her great aunt, Florence Ballard, sang with The Supremes. She is just one of the three members of the family musical team called True Inspiration Productions, which consists of JLE, who adds her singing and writing talent, her brother Charles J Edison, and father Raymond Edison, who are the brains behind the music. With over 50 years of experience as musicians combined, Raymond and Charles add an uncommon musical element to the project that allows it to stand on its own. Tracks from “That’s Me” have received recognition on band websites and is finding its way to college, commercial and internet radio. The first and current project entitled “That’s Me” is just the start for True Inspirations Productions and The Song of Songs Records as plans for this project, label and production team aspire to reach higher than one would expect.
