Jamie T Kennell, known in the music industry as, “JaLi”, (Pronounced Jay-La) was born in Columbus, Georgia and raised in Phenix City, Alabama. People who matter in the music industry are watching this young new Hip Hop turn R & B sensation who is taking the industry with a quiet storm. Jaime is an old soul and it is reflected in his songs and writing as his new beginning, surface and illuminate the R & B genre. His ambition is to keep the old sound with a new flare of lyrics. We are losing songs with meaningful, comprehensible and longevity to withstand the test of time. Jaime is the man who keeps the connection to our great singers of past and present alive with flavor for all to appreciate. 

Jamie started singing in his church choir at the age of seven and until this day when he is home (Alabama) he continues to attend church with his mother on most Sundays. While a junior at Central High School in Phenix City, Alabama he was a member of a trio called Unkut for a year. After performing a few local shows a member of the group felt his heart was no longer in it so the group severed their ties. The name JaLi was given to him by a friend. Ja from Jamie and Li from fli… He was doing his own thing until a friend of his "Pooh" introduces him to Interscope Records. He got a call from Interscope and within six months moved out to Atlanta to work with the label. A lot of paper work was done with the label company before he relocated to LA to continue his singing career. He joined a group signed to Geffen/Interscope called Red-Dirt in 2007 and together they worked on a project for his first CD.

Los Angeles presented the young inspiring artist with many challenges and enlightenment about the music industry. The roster of producers he worked with includes Tim & Bob, Tank, Lonny Burrell, Eric Dawkins, Tony Dickerson, Steve of the group “Troop”, RL of Next, Stevie J from “Badboy”, Denero, Ron Feemaster aka “Nephew”, Luke James of Luke & Q, The Underdogs, Sanchez, Jazzy PHA, Gr&T and Traxx. Also included on the list of heavy hitters are Tyrese and Baby Face. His creative talent is also inclusive of writing songs. He writes lyrics of love, soul searching, and inspiration. He gives credit to Tank for helping him to develop his skills in writing music. 

He approaches his future with a determination, vitality and dynamism causing the music industry to take notice and his fans to respect and crave his music. When asked who is Jaime and where is he going? His reply was, “ I must say that my future endeavors in this industry are to be the best artist/composer that God would allow me to be. Also, to be very successful in opening up future doors for not only other musicians but people that have great talents in other fields that can be beneficial to the industry; whether it is film, photography, video, management, booking, publicist...etc”. He continued on to say,” Things that touches my inner being would be reflecting on my past and how far I have come. The things I have witnessed, and what trials & tribulations I’ve been through as a person, not an artist; and how much it makes me understand and value the simple things of/in life. My parents and family are strong supporters of me and my career.

 


Seeing someone less fortunate as myself touches me. Seeing someone hurt, the pain, the struggles of life, relationships that could have been all of those topics touches me. Last but not least respect & love for one another doesn’t seem to be there anymore... I see myself as a entrepreneur; young, well educated, and intelligent man. My future plans also entails but certainly is not all inclusive is designing clothes, real-estate, and various types of business ownership, acting, and modeling... I want to do the whole 9. I feel that there is nothing in the world I can’t accomplish and become as long as I believe and put my trust and faith in GOD... 

I want to give back knowledge, love & respect which are too often missing out of life. To be able to talk to teenagers and let them know that what is on TV is not reality. It is my obligation to tell young people it is okay to be yourself and have your own individuality. I want to be remembered in life as the guy who helped the less fortunate. I want people to say…Jamie T. Kennell is the most humble guy I have ever known.” 

Perhaps the above is where all his heart felt writing and songs have sprung from in his soon to be new CD. He is very passionate about his music and will tell you, “I feel that through my music I repeat a trend that vanished. To not be ashamed to show emotion towards people you love, to be the bigger person in a bad situation, to let go of grudges, make up, and leave the past behind, and to feel free to be yourself I would love to leave behind the legacy of good music that had actual meaning. My music is not” FOR THE MOMENT" music; when I’m dead and gone my music will still be heard or listened to... whether its millions or just one individual... fans feel connected to me as a person and an artist. Regardless of all the doors being closed in his face, the negative energy telling/saying he will never make it, the ups & downs, rain & sunshine, being homeless for months, being confused, wanting to give up, blood, sweat,& tears, suicidal thoughts because the road was so dark.. JAMIE T KENNEL NEVER GAVE UP BECAUSE HE TRUSTED IN THE LORD.”

He is quiet and reserve until he is performing in front of an audience, then he displays his superb singing aptitude. He is an artist with great poise and skillful voice bringing with him a wealth of expressive and heart felt singing. He touches on many genres of music while his main forte is R & B. He maybe perceived as a quiet storm but this quiet storm is a hurricane in disguise so

I wouldn’t sleep on him if I were you.
