In the summer of 2018, Oklahoma City Singer-Songwriter Jose Hernandez decided to move away from his Americana style band, The Black Magic Waters and move more towards a soulful, R&B sound with influences such as Prince, Leon Bridges and D’Angelo. Long time friends and musicians Ryan Magnani (bass), Alberto Roubert (Drums), Alex Coleman (guitar) and Kendrik McKinney (Keys) joined Jose to begin crafting this new sound and direction. With Jose’s powerful vocals and crafty songwriting, he and the band hit the studio and have begun recording what is shaping up to be a unique and vibrant sound that is sure to be something special. With the release of their first singles “Pretty Baby” and “Tell Me You Want Me” on Spotify, J + The Bishops were born. The newest single “Lose Control” is their slickest and most dance worthy tune to date and is set to be released on Apr. 1st 2020.
