After being heavily pursued by multiple record labels, BC Jean, a hit-making songwriter and gifted vocalist, has signed a recording deal with J Records.
BC has been buzzed about as the co-writer for Beyonceâ€™s poignant, mega hit â€œIf I Were A Boy,â€ and has a slew of other songs penned for her debut album, anticipated for release at the end of 2009.
A San Diego native, BC is currently in the midst of recording material in Los Angeles and New York for her debut album with superstar collaborators Dallas Austin (Gwen Stefani, Pink), The Matrix (Christina Aguilera, Avril Lavigne), Zac Maloy (David Cook), and Toby Gad (Fergie, BeyoncÃ©), who also co-wrote â€œIf I Were A Boyâ€ with BC.
Inspired by Gwen Stefani and Alanis Morrisette, BC is a dynamic young artist who possesses tremendous talent, drive, and passion.
