IJK was recently featured in the Lebanese French speaking newspaper l'Orient Le Jour in an article by famous radio anchor John Saad.
The press review highlighted IJK as a rising Lebanese singer-songwriter as indicated by its french title "IJK, Le Libanais Qui Monte".
Below is the complete article from the print newspaper (in French).
On March 11, 2017, MTV Lebanon - a top Lebanese TV station - interviewed IJK on its popular Rising Star show.
The half hour interview tackled many interesting topics including the origins of IJK's music, his influences and his latest and future projects.
IJK also performed the legendary "Blue Suede Shoes" tune live on TV and rocked the audience in the studio and people watching at home.
Here's the full interview for those who missed it:
It is indeed the most wonderful time of the year!
People get together with their loved ones, share quality time...and good meals!
It is also the time to reflect on the past year...The successes and the setbacks and most of all about the lessons learned for a better future.
Let's also think about our neighbors and brothers and sisters out there...People who are sad, lonely and without the means to celebrate...Let's not forget about those. Sometimes a phone call or simply a smile is enough if we can't do more...
Having said that, I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful 2017.
And to finish this year in music, here's my take on this famous Christmas song recorded by the Christmas tree :)
God bless you all!
Following the positive reviews received for his first single "Space Odyssey", IJK has released on November 4th, 2016 the Lyric Video of the song.
The Lyric Video mixes space snapshots, time-lapses, celestial objects and IJK performing in wild nature...The sound of the "Space Odyssey" Lyric Video is typical of IJK's pop rock style: A catchy piano/synth and guitar driven melody coupled with philosophical and strong vocals.
The music is catchy, the feeling melancholic, the visuals haunting and the overall experience is a neo-classic piece of interesting indie piano rock.
Watch IJK's latest lyric video below and enjoy the ride to the stars!
"Oh simple thing, where have you gone?"
Do you remember this melancholic interrogation from one of Keane's most popular hit "Somewhere Only Know"? I bet you sang this verse a million times in your head especially if you were into alternative rock music around 2004 - 2005.
Well guess what? IJK has just released an acoustic version of this unforgettable piano rock masterpiece which you can watch below. Addictive melodies, indie rock nostalgia and soaring vocals...Check it all below.
IJK is currently working on an acoustic cover of one of his favorite songs by Piano Rock band Keane, "Somewhere Only We Know".
The music video is done in an indie style and will feature IJK performing this hit on acoustic guitar.
