R&B star Jarvis has signed to Capitol Records. He will release Cardiology in 2013. That's the name of the Good Charlotte record that Capitol released, as well! Small world.
Jarvis Shaffer is no stranger to the R&B music scene. At 14, the talented Tulsa, Oklahoma native relocated to Atlanta where he perfected his talent and pursued music as a career. In 2004, he signed with Grammy Award-winning producer Jermaine Dupri's So So Def Recordings. Fans were introduced to Jarvis' engaging tenor vocals on his first single, "Radio." The mid-tempo charmer climbed into Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart after its release. Soon thereafter, Jarvis attracted the attention of Disturbing Tha Peace CEO Chaka Zulu which led to the singer's 2008 second single, "Pretty Girl," featuring a cameo by DTP's co-founder and flagship artist Ludacris.
Now, Jarvis is ready to take R&B to the next level. Signed to Capitol Records through Starstruck Entertainment Group, the crooner released his mix-tape titled Heartache in September 2012, featuring collabos from DJ Khaled, Waka Flocka Flame and Lil Scrappy. The mixtape, inspired by Jarvis' lifelong passion for music, spun off the single "Make a Little Room," which is available now on iTunes.
Check out the song below:
"I want to bring some of the soul back to R&B but also come with a little flair," Jarvis, 23, said. "The music I'm making is really about what I feel has been lost: emotion. I'm not chasing a sound, a look … not anything. I'm doing me."
That's the only way to "do" it.
Are you psyched to check out Jarvis? We love his name.
