One thing I love about working here with The Gulf Coast CW is that I am constantly in contact with interesting and talented people. Last week my friend DJ Blayze from WBLX sent me a message about a promising musical artist, who recently finished recording his new single “Get Down”, Jabel Hendrix. Now, if that last name sounds familiar to you, it’s because it should, as Jabel is linked to the greatest guitarist of all time, Jimi Hendrix.
Jabel was born here in Mobile and lived in Europe for the first years of his life where his parents introduced him to musical influences such as Elton John, David Bowie, Michael Jackson, as well as jazz, rock, pop , Gospel and the âAlt-Rockâ genre of the 90s.
After speaking with Jabel on the phone, I felt a real sense of pride he has for Mobile and the Gulf Coast, and it is this pride that led him to write his latest single “Get Down”. A piece inspired by Mardi Gras that is sure to get you jamming on any occasion.
âGet Downâ will be available on all digital outlets on January 7, 2022. Any music and mobile lover should definitely check it out! Click on the following link to access the exclusive Get Down pre-order
