Jamareo (Also known as Jam) is widely known for serving as session and live touring bassist for Pop Sensation Bruno Mars since 2010 when the crooner hit the scene with his Debut LP "Doo Wops & Hooligans". In 2009, Jam got his biggest start into the industry by winning MTV's Reality Show Making His Band with P. Diddy. More recently, Jam went into the studio with Bruno Mars & Mark Ronson in 2014 to record the biggest hit of the decade "Uptown Funk" which he played live on stage along with Coldplay, Beyonce, Bruno Mars, and Mark Ronson for Superbowl 50 at Levi Stadium in Santa Clara, CA (Jam has played the Superbowl Halftime Show twice since 2014). To add to an already widely successful career, Jam has performed alongside Sting, Lenny Kravitz, Rihanna, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Ed Sheeran, and lots of others throughout the years, as well as performing on countless amounts of TV shows from The Grammy Awards (3 times), Saturday Night Live (Twice), MTV VMA's, The Voice, X Factor, SuperBowl Halftime Show (Twice), Ellen, and so many more as well as several other International TV performances. Despite all of the success achieved with Mars, Jam thought it was finally time to start recording his very own music as well.

The Red BoomBox album will captivate your attention from start to finish. First, soothing your mind with an opening interlude that soon after burst into the next track "Fun" which explodes with the sounds of Earth, Wind & Fire, and Rick James. But that's not all that this album has to offer, as Jam worked hard to produce an album that introduced a wide variety of styles for listeners of all kinds. While listening to this album many may feel vibes from the 70's, 80's, and 90's with the precise horns, groovy bass lines, and funky guitar playing (Which Jam also played on a few songs himself), and although this album may not be your typical solo project for a bass player, there are plenty of bass playing moments in each track on 'The Red BoomBox'. As a tribute to the late Jaco Pastorius there is even a short interlude entitled "Dream" that Jam plays a fretless bass, along with live strings in his honor. This album follows Jam's 'Liberation" EP which he released on September 11, 2015, that lead him to going back in the studio to finish what he had started and upgrade the quality on his current LP. This album is a must have for everyone, and is sure to bring lots of joy to all listening.
It has been a long past year for Jam, between working on his own music for the first time, and performing at events such as Superbowl 50, and The White House. Jam is sure to be around for a while as a mainstay in the music industry, as he has already built great respect from legends such as Verdine White of Earth, Wind & Fire, American Idol's Randy Jackson, Sting, Flea of The Red Hot Chili Peppers, and many more.
