Ju-Taun (pronounced Zah-Tawn) is a multi-cultural R&B male vocal group of High School friends from Williamstown, New Jersey. The group originally patterned their sound after classic R&B acts like the Jackson 5, The Stylistics, and Earth, Wind & Fire. Since then, they have continued to grow into an even more organic sound which they can call their own. The group's numous accomplishments include winning "Best R&B Group" at the Underground Music Awards, Billboard Magazine's "Top 10 New R&B Artist", and runner up honors on MTV's Top Pop Group where they competed against thousands of contestants. Now with a re-invented musicality that evokes influences from blues to gospel to folk music, Ju-Taun's new sound sets the perfect landscape for their personal songs.
With a voice you won't forget, Zeek, also known as "The Experience," dramatically draws listeners in with his truly one-of-a-kind, soul-stirring voice. He melodically weaves tales of life and love over lush arrangements and classic lyrical depth. As a vocalist, arranger and songwriter, Zeek infuses the best elements of Pop, Soul, Jazz, and Gospel music into a mélange that tugs your heart with honesty and prowess. After less than one year in the City of Brotherly Love, the artist brought his dynamic live show to notable venues such as Union Transfer, World Cafe Live and The Blockley. At just 22, Zeek has written and referenced songs for major label artsts and roused audiences with performances throughout the country, including opening for major acts like Ryan Leslie, and Dru Hill.
