Jor`Del Downz spoke about the power of a strong hip-hop beat, tricks to mixing music, and where the industry of R& B can take you in Northern Ontario. He has built a brand in Toronto and beyond all while being legally blind from birth, it was a great conversation of how boundaries are often imaginary.

About The Artist:

Jor’Del Downz, is a producer, beatmaker, rapper, singer songwriter and percussionist. His love of music is apparent as he has a hand in every part of the process it takes to create it. HipHop is his first love and he wears the hat of vocalist, producer and recording engineer proudly. Born and raised in the small town of Sudbury Ontario Canada, he was diagnosed with Retina Pigmentosa at birth, totally blind until 4 years old at which time he gained back over 50% of his sight in both of his eyes. Drawing inspiration from industry hip hop icons Eminem, Tech N9ne, Andre3000 and DMX and his time in rap collectives and fashion school, there is no doubt he will be creating music for your ears to hear for years to come.
