If Soul, Pop, and R&B had a threesome, their baby would sound like Jules and The Jinks.

 

Jules and The Jinks is the brain child of first-generation native New Yorkers Julissa Lopez and Erik Rosenberg. Despite their different backgrounds (Dominican from The Bronx and Jewish from The Upper West Side) the two were united by their love of James Brown, Etta James, and Led Zeppelin.  Though they flirt with various genres from Blues, to Funk, to Afro-Pop and Jazz, the music of Jules and The Jinks is best described as Soul.  Jules and Erik use the characters, story lines, and melodies of their songs to evoke familiar yet powerful emotions.  AFROPUNK has described their debut EP as "effortlessly chill" and declared the record's lead single, No Compromise, "a song that deserves to be blaring from car speakers while driving through borough blocks." Jules and The Jinks won AFROPUNK's Battle of The Bands in August and went on to play the main stage of AFROPUNK Brooklyn.
