Jhameel was once set on the path to officer-ship in the United States Army. Although his linguistic skills in Arabic, Spanish, Korean, and Russian would have been highly rewarded in the military, Jhameel quit the program before signing an irrevocable contract due to personal beliefs about U.S. presence in the Middle East. He then earned a degree in Arabic from UC Berkeley within just two years, graduating summa cum laude. Immediately after, he began his career in music.

Jhameel creates explosively funky music comprised of soul-stirring guitar, immersive synthesizers, triumphant brass, and athletic, melodic vocals inspired equally by Prince and Michael Jackson. He plays each and every instrument on his records himself, creating catchy melodies that settle easily into your mind with human lyrical themes that continue to challenge the heart. Jhameel’s skills extend to the mixing board too, as he produces his own music.

Jhameel’s second album, The Human Condition, sparked interest with thousands of music fans, propelling tracks “Bernal Heights” and “The Human Condition” to the top of the Hype Machine Popular Charts. He followed up with the Dance EP, which featured the furiously energetic “Shut Up”, a track that not only took over the Hype Machine charts once more, but became Forever 21’s flagship song for the fall of 2011.

    It's still incorrect though. Their limited scope doesn't change the material. It's not like Michael or Prince were ever Avant Garde either. (Just to reiterate so nobody ends up calling me a hater: I DO really like his stuff, the tags are just plain wrong)

    Good music, I'm enjoying Lion's Den...but I hope whoever tagged Avant Garde was joking. It's the typical slightly-indie variety of mainstream pop. Well made, but pretty much the solar opposite of Avant Garde. He could start giving his demos to Britney or (insert random other Pop star here) right now and they'd make it onto the albums unchanged.
