First Listen: Newcomer Michael Jasper is ready to "Make It"

22-year old Michael Jasper comes by his musical talent naturally: He is the son of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame keyboardist and former Isley Brothers member Chris Jasper. Chris has long been a SoulTracks favorite, and Michael has a similar penchant for infectious tunes and funky beats.

Michael is a busy young man, currently working on a screenplay and the associated soundtrack. He is also putting the finishing touches on his debut album, Dreams. Michael tells us about where he’s at: "Music is deeper than dollar signs. It is very much a reflection of society and a commentary on ourselves. Not only do I want to become a part of this commentary, I want to have a positive impact on it. I want to spread the message of love and hope. I want to use my music as a way to communicate socio-political ideals. I want to become a part of this business because I love music and I feel a need to share what's in my heart with the world."

We’re proud to be introducing SoulTrackers to this talented young artist with a First Listen of his new song, “Make It.” The cut combines classic funk elements with an aggressive modern beat.
