Wednesday, December 19th, 2018 | 7 PM – 9 PM | Julian Smith Casino
The Augusta native returns home for an evening of holiday favorites, jazz classics, and original music. Collaborators include Trey Mclaughlin, Susan Zhang, Ashley Rivera, Joya Moore, and many more!
Mix classical music with jazz, jazz with pop, and pop with gospel to discover an artist who truly understands the power in living in a musical world without categorical boundaries. Born and raised in the heart of Augusta, Georgia, Jamal discovered his love for music listening to the soulful gospel melodies of his grandmother and the funky rhythmic beats of his father. As a child, he began singing in gospel ensembles—including Creative Impressions—and, later formed an all-male trio—Intonation—that quickly rose to local fame with the group’s diverse musical talents. Throughout high school, he performed as a member of the Grammy Award-winning chorale at Davidson Fine Arts High School. There, Jamal received numerous accolades including placing first in the 2007-2008 GHSA State Literary Meet for boys solo. After graduating from Davidson, Jamal went on to attend college at the Eastman School of Music where he trained in opera. In 2010, he was awarded the William Warfield Scholarship, which acknowledges African-American students who excel musically and academically, while embodying the passionate spirit of the late, great, William Warfield. Eastman School of Music led him to finish his collegiate career with the University of Rochester’s a cappella group, The Yellow Jackets. Jamal joined the group in competing on Season Three of NBC’s The Sing-Off, where he was a featured soloist each week. As a soloist, Jamal won praise from the judges for his unique voice and ability to mix multiple genres at once. Jamal returned to The Sing-Off in Season Five, as a member of The Exchange. Since 2012, Jamal More has toured over fifty countries with The Exchange and released multiple albums across mainstream platforms. After years on tour, Jamal is now living his dream of creating music of his own and performing those hits for the world. He continues to release covers/mash-ups for his fans on YouTube and is working on his solo E.P. entitled ‘The Introduction’. His modern twist on a classical sound is what makes him a timeless musician. He has a presence and voice that you have to truly experience to believe.
