The Neighbourhood

"Buzz-band is a term that has been fluttering around the Internet for quite some time now. It's meaning is pretty straightforward: it is an underground indie band, formerly unknown, that comes out with a single worthy of Internet hype. That is why I disagree with labeling the recent indie Internet phenom, The Neighbourhood, as buzzworthy; they are clearly destined for so much more.

The band is also exceptionally mysterious. It's a quintet based out of LA, with Rutherford as the frontman. However, I couldn't tell you who plays what instrument. Their website doesn't even have any biographical information. The shroud of mystery surrounding them is part of the reason people like them so much, they're not out there for fame and glory—yet—they're just producing great tracks, (and all of these tracks are available FREE online…just keep reading). Their mysteriousness also perfectly parallels with the way they blend the genres of rock, R&B, and folk in a way only an indie band can.

Their 5-track EP is available for free download on their website. All the tracks are well worth listening to again and again." --Candor News

The R&B crooner, who released his debut album, †Priscilla†, in January 2012, also operates his indie label, White Room Records, out of his home studio. The success of his freshman album captured the attention of platinum-selling artist Usher, and even landed JMSN four slots on Kendrick Lamar’s groundbreaking Good Kid, M.A.A.D City album (“Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe”, “The Art Of Peer Pressure”, “Sing About Me/Dying Of Thirst”, “Real”).

JMSN’s impressive talents have allowed him to collaborate with the likes of Game, J. Cole, Tyga, Ab-Soul, Kaytranada, Ta-ku, and many others. The success of JMSN’s self-titled album, affectionately known as the Blue Album, released in December 2014, paved the way for a successful world tour, including multiple stops across North America, Europe, Australia, and China. JMSN’s musical evolution continues with the upcoming release of “It is.” on May 6, 2016 via White Room Records.
