“Safe” - Joseph Nevels | Review

New single from Joseph Nevels, (jsph) “Safe” is a chilled indie R&B blend that is perfect for a night in. His newest work is his most raw and vulnerable yet. So much so that he brought back the vowels and is releasing it under his full name.

Warm and silky vocals, Nevels creates the perfect sunset drive ambiance. He has such a soulful tone to his vocals it is truly vulnerable and emotive. His voices glides through production with a subtle confidence sure to leave an impression. His penmanship stands out as well and he's recently worked with Grammy Nominated producers DJ Corbett (Nipsey Hussle, Chris Browm Juice Wrld,) and Johan Lenox (Kanye, Selena Gomez, Travis Scott)

With law school books full of song lyrics, it was evident at graduation that Joseph Nevels (fka JSPH) always had an affinity for music. When Pharrell co-signed his first single it only propelled him to continue making rhythm soaked tracks. NPR Music quickly showed support and said he, "fits seamlessly into the world of D' Angelo, Frank Ocean, and James Blake."

Others soon caught on and he gained editorial playlist and press love from Fresh Finds, Spotify's New Music Friday, Beats1 OTHERtone, KCRW and Newsweek Magazine.

Naturally the sync world followed as he landed with music placements on On My Block (Netflix), Queen Sugar (Oprah Network), and Wuthering High, it's no coincidence that he's gained millions of streams as an independent artist.
