GFM Spotlight Interview: Justin-Lee Schultz
GFM's Music Editor Ivan Orr chats with thirteen year old multi-instrumentalist phenom Justin-Lee Schultz about his upcoming debut project "Gruv Kid" (out 11/13) , his beginnings in music, influences and much more in this up close and personal interview.
About Justin-Lee Schultz
Born in Johannesburg, South Africa and based in Durham, NC, musical wonder-kid Justin Lee Schultz is the good news you did not even know you needed. He is joy personified. The multi-instrumental wizard who has dazzled audiences on TV shows Harry, Little Big Shots and American’s Most Musical Family, is a prodigy in the fashion of his idols Stevie Wonder and Herbie Hancock. His talent is exceptional not merely because he is young but also due to his melodic, harmonic and technical maturation. While his peers are learning the latest Tik Tok dances and amassing kills on Fortnite, Justin prefers studio time and woodshedding for hours. While social distancing has most people jamming at home with their families, Justin has literally been jamming with his musician father and bassist Julius and 16-year-old sister and drummer Jamie-Leigh. “Music brings me joy because I can express myself when I play. I can also get creative when I’m improvising,” shares the amiable, cherub faced and charismatic 13-year old who has aspirations to one day share the stage with Wonder and Herbie Hancock, as well as Bruno Mars, Charlie Puth, Jacob Collier, Cory Henry and Robert Glasper. Justin, who plays piano, guitar, bass guitar and talkbox, devotes five to seven hours each day to his musical craft. His anticipated Shanachie Entertainment debut will be released November 2020.

GFM Spotlight Interview: Nyah Grace
GFM's music editor Ivan Orr presents this interview with Nyah Grace in her own words. Nyah talks about her beginnings in music, her work on the album in the UK, growing up on a farm and much more in this intimate portrait of a young artist on the rise!
Really appreciate the podcast and especially the episode on 70’s soul music. By far my favorite decade for music and entertainment as a whole. Honorable mention goes to the episode on Wendy and Lisa’s first album after their departure from the revolution.
Who is the hater?
Well, we have finally done it.
Turned even this discussion of the best music ever made, into racist finger pointing.
What is racist about a band that doesn’t pigeonhole itself?
I turn the finger around and point it at you!
Shame shame shame.
