J Hoard — Singer, Songwriter
Multitalented artist J Hoard pays tribute to the queer people, trans people and disenfranchised people who inhabited the piers of NYC before him through song. He and his full band will perform songs that possess the essence of the Black church and the allure of the Great White Way and will have you moved and inspired.
J. Hoard interweaves genres to articulate his vivid songwriting. This eclectic approach has yielded songwriting collaborations on two Grammy-award winning albums (Black Coffee – 2022 “Subconsciously” Dance Album & Chance the Rapper – 2017 “Coloring Book” Rap album). Additionally, he works closely with artists such as Brasstracks, Endea Owens, Jose James and the legendary Meshell Ndegeocello (credited vocalist on her 2019 Grammy nominated “Ventriloquism” album). No matter the genre, platform, or language (as demonstrated through his backing vocals on the Latin Grammy winning “Sobrevolando” Cultura Profetica album) J. Hoard possesses the essence of the Black church and allure of the Great White Way, usually with his arms stretched out like Whitney Houston, to ensure the audience is enriched while being entertained
