San Francisco based pop prodigy Jhameel has continued to wow the music world with his catchy hooks and unique vocals for his latest music series “Waves”. Releasing a track a week for 5 weeks in late 2011, the series created serious buzz taking the blog world by storm. Hitting #2 on the Hype Machine charts, the title track, “Waves” is an ethereal 3 minute journey to get lost in and now there is a video to go along with it.
Producing, editing and dircting the video himself, Jhameel took to the ocean to film his latest clip for the series. Performing amongst the most stunning sunset along the water, the footage perfectly displays the beauty of the track in video form.

After completing high school in San Francisco, Jhameel was set on the path to officer-ship in the United States Army. Although his linguistic skills in Arabic, Spanish, Korean, and Russian would have been highly rewarded in the military, Jhameel quit the program before signing an irrevocable contract due to personal beliefs about U.S. presence in the Middle East. He then earned a degree in Arabic from UC Berkeley within just two years, graduating summa cum laude. Immediately after, he began is career in music.
Jhameel creates explosively funky music comprised of soul-stirring guitar, immersive synthesizers, triumphant brass, and unique, melodic vocals inspired equally by Prince and Michael Jackson. An incredibly talented musician, Jhameel records, produces and mixes his own music, and plays each and every instrument on his records himself. He creates catchy melodies that settle quickly into your mind with human lyrical themes that continue to challenge the heart.
Jhameel’s second album, The Human Condition, propelled “Bernal Heights” and “The Human Condition” to the top of the Hype Machine Popular Charts. He followed up with the Dance EP, which featured the furiously energetic “Shut Up,” a track that not only took over the Hype Machine Charts once more, but became Forever 21’s flagship song for the fall of 2011. In the winter of 2011, Jhameel presented his five song WAVES series, in which he released a new single every Tuesday for five weeks. The title track “Waves” reached #2 on both The Hype Machine and We Are Hunted, while “Collision” was used in a national advertisement for Verizon’s Droid RAZR. Jhameel showed true versatility with “White Lie”, a hip-hop inspired pop song which has been growing steadily online, and now boasts the most streams from the collection.
With several music videos and a new music series planned over the next few months, 2012 will truly be the year to launch Jhameel into the mainstream.
