J Vessel, 19-year-old London rapper and youngest ever Gospel MOBO nominee, is having a bright 2016 after signing to Light Music record label and releasing his debut album, ‘Reflections’.
Light is a Manchester-based record label co-founded by popular LZ7 rapper, Lindz West. Aside from LZ7, the label currently represents electro pop/rock band, Good Weather Forecast; rapper, Remidee, and pop/soul singer-songwriter Lily-Jo, and now adds J Vessel to the roster.
In a video announcing the signing, Lindz said: “I’m really happy to announce we’ve signed J Vessel… J is such a great artist, such a great rapper, and he’s got a real heart for Jesus.”
The young rapper was signed to the label in May 2016. When we asked him about it, he said: “Signing to Light presented a wonderful opportunity to reach more people with the hope I’ve found in God, and to learn from people who have been doing it way longer than I have! LZ7 and the team have been doing big things in Manchester and the world. I’m looking forward to many trips up and down the M6 between L-Town and Manny!”
Since teaming up with Light, J Vessel has performed on the ‘Big Church Day Out’ – stage to 1000s of Christian music lovers, performed with other label-mates around the country, and released his debut album, ‘Reflections’ – a 14-track album featuring some of the biggest names in UK Gospel, including Guvna B, Dwayne Tryumf, A-Star and more.
