Meet Jazmine “JAZZY” Bailey, a soulful breath of fresh air hailing from Los
Angeles, California. This R&B songstress conveys a classic feel to today’s music
scene by incorporating a seductive blend of melodic harmonies with a hip-hop
edge. Her music reminds you of what the game is missing today, true R&B.
Never compromising her sound, JAZZY believes what sets her apart from other
artists is her refusal to follow trends. While many artists are putting out mixtapes
with the best of current music, JAZZY has recently released a collection of songs
from her favorite female legends. Eloquently titled “Letters To A King” JAZZY’s
latest effort takes on classic songs from the likes of Anita Baker, SADE, and the
great Diana Ross, to name a few. JAZZY simply calls it, “A tribute to greatness.”
In addition to being known as a singer, JAZZY is also a successful songwriter.
Together with longtime collaborator Bobbie-Cheri Gobert, the ladies are known
as the highly talented and sought after writing team "The Write Chix." In 2007
the ladies received their biggest break when a mutual friend of theirs and R&B
superstar Chris Brown, introduced JAZZY’s music to Brown while on tour. He
immediately loved her voice and quickly arranged a meeting with manager,
Tina Davis, while in Los Angeles. Veteran music publisher, and friend of Davis’
LaRonda Sutton sat in on the meeting. Subsequently, “The Write Chix” were the
first songwriters signed to Foxx/King Music, Jamie Foxx’s Publishing Company.
Shortly after amicably parting ways with Foxx/King Music, JAZZY pursued other
opportunities resulting in the success of her 2010 mixtape, Beauty and the
Beat. With this release, JAZZY was able to breakthrough as an independent
recording artist. The collection featured Grammy nominated singer/songwriters
Melanie Fiona and Eric Roberson, along with Bravo reality television star and
Grammy award winner, Kandi Burruss. The collection was well received by music
lovers internationally with immense promotion by popular websites such as
ConcreteLoop, AllHipHop, BOSSIP, and Singersroom.com.
As Melanie Fiona’s background vocalist for Kanye West’s “Glow In the Dark”
European tour, JAZZY had the opportunity to be exposed to an international
fan base, as well as travel the world. Her soulful, distinctive sound has since
transcended across cultural and racial boundaries giving her experiences that not
many up and coming artist’s have. Appreciative of her experiences, JAZZY says
that longevity and a connection to her audience are two aspects of her career
that she is focused on.
Currently JAZZY’S been in the studio collaborating with a number of songwriters/
producers such as, Jdoe (Danity Kane, Busta Rhymes), Lonny Bereal (Jamie
Foxx, Kelly Rowland, Tank) and Hip Hop star, Busta Rhymes. Popular website
Bossip.com has enlisted JAZZY to record the theme music to their new web-
series “She’s the Boss” premiering summer of 2011. She has also been
honored, “Artist To Watch 2011” by Singersroom.com.
In addition to working with Busta Rhymes on his own project, the two have
released the remix to “Love Hangover;” a stand out track off JAZZY’s Letters
To A King mixtape. The song has generated a tremendous buzz virally that has
audiences wanting more from the talented vocalist. With support from Busta
Rhymes, JAZZY has received love from R&B supporters, as well as a high
demand from hip hop fans who may not have been exposed to her music before.
2011 WILL be JAZZY’s year. “JAZZY’s poisonous pen and buttery delivery are her
musical weapons...there’s no way anyone can stop her” – Singersroom.com
