"One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain." 

Bob Marley

Born to a family of vocalists and musicians In Wildwood, FL, Blanche J had very little choice for a hobby. At an early age she learned to play several brass instruments, but it was her big voice that most impressed those that came in contact with her. Blanche started to sing with her family choir at the tender age of 3, and as she got older, she was thrust to the forefront as a lead singer of the family choir, as well as her church choir.

 

This trend continued as Blanche J went on to Florida A&M University as a member of the Concert Choir, and later the Gospel Choir. She was also frequently seen leading Praise and Worship at several churches in and around Tallahassee, FL. Shortly after graduating, Blanche relocated to Charlotte, NC, where she set out to learn the music scene in her new home. Here she met and formed a bond with local jazz artist, Paul Whitley. Paul saw something familiar in Blanche J that led him to take her under his wing and push her to share her voice with the world in the form of "real music". Along her journey to create a name for herself, Blanche J has had the honor and privilege of singing alongside or accompanying such great names as Kim Burrell, Kelly Price, Vanessa Bell Armstrong, and Blanche McAllister-Dykes.

Blanche J's background in soul, R&B, gospel and classical music shines through in everything she sings. She manages to take the most essential aspects of each genre of music and blends it every so masterfully, making it artistically pleasing to the ear. Blanche J is currently working on her newest album which will be produced by the mastermind, Micki Miller.  Blanche J provides private vocal lessons in person and via Skype. She is also the lead singer of Charlotte, NC band, The Queen's Guard.
