BIOGRAPHYJ. Pinder has accomplished an extraordinary amount for such a young artist. He has collaborated with the cream of Seattle hip hop (Jake One, Vitamin D, Kuddie Fresh) and he has worked with characters such as Guilty Simpson. Pinder has made guest appearances on releases by Rhymesayers, and has been written up by both local press and heavy hitters such as URB and Okay Player. That’s so far... and he’s twenty two years old. On his new single Go Far [FIN-LE12-009] J. Pinder expertly weaves his words through the backdrop of a Kuddie Fresh produced beat, live strings, live drums and live bass. Working with veteran Seattle producer Martin Feveyear, and employing musicians such as drummer Barrett Martin (Screaming Trees, Mad Season, Tuatara) and Seattle Symphony players masterfully performing a full string arrangement by Feveyer and Katie Freeze (The Hope) Pinder positively shines. His effortlessly delivery of well-crafted verses and unforgettable hooks is executed with stellar confidence. The rich, full composition behind his voice elevates the single further skyward. To call the material epic would not be an overstatement...this is song writing of the highest order. Lyrically, Go Far is about moving into an unknown future with a solid and determined optimism. The track emphatically expresses the need for faith in one’s own ideas, abilities, and experiences. This is what is required to triumph over adversity. This is what is needed to truly be alive. And this is one of a plethora of inspirations the listener finds upon repeated spins of Go Far. Simply put, Go Far is an incredibly mature song from a talented young artist with a lot to share.
