Share this article

    (January 26, 2022) Bronx native Jules Truly is new to us, but she has been performing for most of her life. Beginning as a child singer with the Highbridge Voices Community Choir, through a role as Nala in the Broadway musical The Lion King, and ultimately placing as a finalist at the famed Apollo Theater’s Amateur Night in 2014, she has been a young artist on the rise.

    Jules now fronts the NYC-based band Jules and the Jinks, sporting a sound the blends jazz, funk, R&B and more. And as she prepares for her self-titled solo album, Jules delivers a single that goes in another direction -- harkening back to the dance music of a prior generation.

    “Top of the Hour” is a fun song that captures the aura of the NYC dance clubs of the late 70s and early 80s, and the accompanying video is dead on in its vibe. Jules is clearly having fun with the scene, and she brings her audience along with her for the nostalgic ride to disco balls and shining outfits.

    We think SoulTrackers will dig this one. Check out “Top of the Hour” below, and welcome Jules Truly to SoulTracks.
