Terry Hunter feat. Jon Pierce – The Message

First Listen! Terry Hunter feat. Jon Pierce – The Message (Original Mix) (T’s Box)

This jam sounds like an answer in many ways. An answer to D-Train‘s memorable ‘Music’ asking whatever we would do without our music. If not an unlikely extension to War‘s classic ‘The World Is A Ghetto’. Although closer in terms of approach to its cover version by the likes of George Benson

True to what made his reputation, Hunter once again brings lush arrangements. He therefore crafts what we may feel as a future classic feel to Jon Pierce‘s soothing vocal performance. Love definitely sounds as ‘The Message’… Surrounded by Keith Henderson (guitars), Ivory Vaughn (keys), John Jai Bass (live bass) and Julio Gonzalez on percs.

A native of the South Side of Chicago, Jon Pierce realized his deep love and sheer passion for music at the early age of 11. With obvious thanks to his immediate sourroundings who exposed him to talents such as Stevie Wonder, Fela Kuti and Maze featuring Frankie Beverly. He remembers his mom givin’ him a walkman with a Luther Vandross tape the year after, which he studied for hours. A deep soulfulness which would become the foundation of his own sound along with a drop of Jazz, House Rhythms and R&B…

A professional singer since the age of 15, Jon Pierce has been a consistent performer with both stage and vocal projects ever since. Fueled by his drive to “take a set of songs and turn them into memorable moments for the audience” (source: Afropunk), Jon is undoubtedly set to carry the Chicago flag to wider audiences.
How could we ever forget about the outstanding ‘My Words’ which he recorded back in 2003 with Kenny Carvajal? But also ‘Never’, 10 years after which he did along with Ralf GUM and Kafele Bandele… Not to mention his collaborations with Steal Vybe or Sean Ali???
