Canadian Smooth Jazz R&B Artist Releases New Cover of Disco Smash Hit – “Rockin’ Chair”

A great story of how an artist takes their career, talent and amazing voice to reinvent themselves in the current market and JC Sol has done just that. 

Canadian-born JC Sol is a multi-talented singer/songwriter and performer, whose passion and love of R&B and the classic Philly sound has raised her profile in the world of independent artists. JC delivers a smooth and sensual vocal offering that has found a way of capturing the soulful grooves of that special retro sound while creating current and refreshing productions.

Not new to the music scene, JC Sol is a legacy artist who has toured for many years as a lead singer, providing entertainment on a global level. Today, JC’s special brand of song-writing and production has garnered a fan-based popularity from R & B and Adult Contemporary music enthusiasts all over the world.  

In 2023, JC Sol came back on to the single release scene, with a love song “Callin’ Out” that would tear at anyone’s heartstrings. With great success, the single was embraced by the Smooth Jazz enthusiasts which led to the decision to re-release “Our Groove” with a new re-mix. Her original release of “Our Groove” in March of 2022 was met with gratifying success, earning global acclaim by North American and European R & B/Smooth Jazz Radio Stations and Curators alike. “Our Groove” also received the honour of being among the top ten finalists in the prestigious “World Songwriting Awards” for Best R & B Song of 2022. Influenced by the original track’s success, a dance Remix of “Our Groove” continued to build momentum, followed by the horn inspired “Best of Things”, and heart wrenching “Unrequited Love”.

“The decision to re-release the “Our Groove (Remix)” was based on the overwhelming popularity of the original release, along with its solid production content, making the track pure perfection as a club remix,” JC shares. “The great reaction on smooth jazz formats as well as terrestrial radio was inspiring to keep recording.”

Then came the smash it duet “Callin’ Out” with fellow vocalist Jason Simmons. “I had always wanted to do a duet with someone and I wrote this song with a ‘call and answer format’ that worked out beautiful with Jason.”  The single release met with critical acclaim, with a love song that would tear at anyone’s heartstrings.

The release of “Our Groove” and its social media reactions also caught the eyes and ears of Dance Plant Records out of Montreal which garnered a label distribution with the Canadian boutique label that promotes globally.

Cussy Nicodemo of Dance Plant remarks on releasing Rockin’ Chair, “I have been in the music business for decades, so when this classic re-make of the Gwen Macrae disco hit came across our desks, we thought it was great. Perfect timing for the type of music that clubs are playing right now as they are favouring retro hits.”

A new release of the Gwen McCrae disco hit “Rockin’ Chair”, now released by Dance Plant Records – Sony/The Orchard is sure to make its mark on the music charts. With a focus on producing her very first EP of original songs in late 2024, JC continues to do what she does best, recording self-penned songs filled with soul & love, that fuse all genres influenced through her remarkable musical journey.
