Take Notice: Amplifying Black Stories
Episode 61: JR Rhodes

Take Notice welcomes back JR Rhodes for another wonderful conversation. You can listen to our previous conversation on Episodes 22 and 23. Hear about JR's most recent creative project, an album entitled 'Ma'am', dedicated to her mother. JR shares about her creative process and how she takes care of her mental health.

This conversation delves into mental health and suicide. If you or someone you know is struggling with mental health we encourage you to reach out for help. Call or text 988 or chat 988lifeline.org.

Singer-songwriter J.R. Rhodes believes in the transformative power of music.
From her first open-mic performances at the O.K. Hotel, Seattle, to her latest album I Am, these beliefs in the transformative power of music are distilled into songs of quiet intensity that traverse spirituals, folk, blues, jazz, and rock.

Rhodes muses, “It’s easy to be cynical. It takes a lot to be intentional. It takes a lot to dream. It takes a lot to love.”  Her recent release, I Am, takes the listener into love and then heartache, through rebirth, and finally, up into freedom.

J.R. is currently working on two new albums. One recording is a cinematic folk album including music inspired by the works of African-American artists Alice Walker, Nikki Giovanni, Elizabeth Cotten, Langston Hughes and more. The other recording is a collection of songs of African-American heritage including spirituals, slave songs and lullabies.
