Biography

JK is the alias of at least 6 artists:

1) JK’s vocalist’s real name is Marta Simlat. The name of JK was chosen by chance. ‘We were looking for something short, easy to say and something that was catchy. JK it’s easy for people to remember’ explains Marta.

The first single You Make Me Feel Good was a chart success in Europe and Canada. After that Marta became a part of the group and the singles Beat It and the classic Italo track You and I were released (thanks to the success of You and I in France her photo was on the cover of the Dance Machine 6 compilation) with many beautiful remixes. You and I peaked # 3 in Israel. In 1996 the track My Radio was released. The vocalist’s voice seemed to be different, whereas Marta remained the official leadsinger. The maxi contained a disco version, but also a great euro version. It took Europe by storm and opened the Japanese market for the artist. Afterwards an explosive Megamix was released.

After the song Sweet Lady Night, which was accompanied by a sizzling video, we did not hear anything from J.K. until 1998, when the song Go On was released. Then a year after she came back with Deep In The Night. In a Canadian interview, she told an album was planned afterwards.


2) JK aka J.K. — Electric guitarist Joel Kipnis - or “JK, ” as the smooth jazz world will know him - is an amazingly unselfish musician, not only including his keyboardist Dinky Bingham and featured vocalist Robyn Springer on the back cover of his Verve Forecast debut What’s The Word - but deferring lead parts and solos to them as well as other bandmembers more often than not throughout the disc.
