Detroit’s JMSN, or Christian Berishaj, has been putting out solid releases one after the other for the last four years, but it’s hard to say any have been as soulful and emotionally packed as It Is, which dropped online yesterday. The 13 song project, written, produced and mixed by JMSN himself, is an impressive artistic step for Berishaj (who adopted the moniker JMSN in 2012) who has drifted through the music industry since he inked his first deal with Atlantic Records 10 years ago.
Throughout the album, JMSN flexes his vocal abilities through poetic lyrics about his love for a girl. At times, he grazes the surface pertaining to his experiences overcoming obstacles, never failing to bring it back around to marvel on how beautiful life can be. It Is is a project that skates between its highs and its lows without little hiccup in between.
You can cop tickets to JMSN’s show with 1833 at Double Door on June 9th right here.
