Similar to the path taken by international superstar Rihanna, R&B/Reggae fusion quartet, J Status, has landed on U.S. soil. Shortly after their journey to America from the Caribbean, Orain ‘Shabbz’ Stewart, brothers Byron and Dru Barwise and Andrew ‘A.T.’ Thompson met with Evan Rodgers and Carl Sturken of SRP Records. The label founders, who are also responsible for acts such as Shontelle and Javier, inked the fellas almost immediately after hearing them harmonize. Now, after several years of working their records overseas, J Status is releasing their debut single, I’m Ready, to radio nationwide. The record, produced by Kuk Harrell, is an up-beat club jam that could best be described as a marriage between techno and dancehall.
