After spending the last few years building and developing his distinctive direction, emerging newcomer J-Summa is now ready to introduce himself to the wider world with his sultry debut single 'Heaven And Home'.
Capturing a wonderfully warm and dreamy soul-inspired sound throughout, 'Heaven And Home' makes for a beautifully alluring introduction to his style. Filled with rich and luxurious textures, a sweeping atmosphere, and his own mesmerising vocals at the helm, he has cultivated a truly memorable opening number here.
