Outright genre-bending singer/songwriter/rapper Jelly Roll has quietly been building a remarkable career, under the radar and on his own terms. Since his days selling his mix tapes out of the trunk of his car, Jelly Roll has constantly been releasing new music (more than 24 albums), touring relentlessly, consistently topping various iTunes charts, engaging a rabid fanbase and creating videos that have amassed a staggering billion plus views on YouTube. He pairs deeply personal lyrics with music that blends Old-school Rap, Classic Rock, Country and Soul to create music that is therapeutic, raw and tackles the heaviness in life.
His 2020 single “Save Me”—a confessional, vulnerable expression of self-doubt set the stage for his new season of life and took him to new heights, with more than 65 million views on YouTube and Gold certification from the RIAA.
Jelly’s newest album Ballads of the Broken last was released in late 2021. The introspective 10-track album features the #1 Active Rock hit, “Dead Man Walking” as well as, “Son of a Sinner”, which is currently climbing the country charts. The album shows Jelly Roll’s growth as an artist and man, drawing from his personal experiences to tell the story of a man who has been through the ringer and isn’t afraid to share his raw truth
