We had the good fortune of connecting with Jeff Fresh and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jeff, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I grew up listening to Kompa and Hip hop, I used to sing and rap after school. On college I recorded my first song ever since then I been in love with recording music. My 2 buddies were in the same college as I and they were in a rap group call “J n J boys” they were some of the best rap groups. They took me to my first studio session where I recorded my first song ever. Now in 2021, I make universal music and used all different type of producers all around the world whenever I am working on a project.

When I’m working on a song, I like to let the instruments inspire me to write and then record it. The instruments set the vibe then The rest is history 😁 I just release my first Studio album name “Shadow Black” this album has so much different sounds that everyone who listen to it like more than 9 songs because everyone will find certain songs on their they will like. “Shadow Black” is a mixer of Afrobeat, hip hop, kompa, and reggae. The album is available on all streaming platforms around the world. I get a lot of positive feedbacks about the album in the Caribbean, United States, Africa, South America, and Europe. first of all I’m a businessman who has numerous business ventures around the world and known as a mentor to a lot of young men. Therefore my music is a hobby and my therapy, I like to use recording music as a way to get away from the world. I will continue to use my music to spread love and peace around the world those are my plans for the future. Spreading my music around the world is what I am focus on for the future.
