JK's vocals speaks volumes about his awareness of the sound that has shaped the melody of Panjabi heritage.

Although JK, has been behind the scenes and learning his art since 2000, there has been no rush to release a single, an album or promotion until it was felt he is ready. So far the game has been about learning, being patient and letting things happen when they're supposed to.

With the backing of his Ustad and mentor, Sukhjit Singh Olk (aka, Tru Skool) JK is ready to hit the airwaves and set dance floors ablaze.

The story began when, like many UK born bhangra fans looking to attach themselves to the heart pounding beats of Panjab, JK bought himself a Dhol and with a keen musical ear taught himself to play through listening to clips from tapes and CDs. Alongside this he found himself singing along to his favourite hits, this passion turned into a full blown ambition upon meeting Tru Skool. Together they have spent endless hours, learning, practicing, rehearsing.

Following years gaining theoretical knowledge and practice, in true Panjabi tradition, JK's first public appearance on stage was at the Singh Sabha Gurudwara in Derby, UK. Accompanied by Tru skool on the Harmonium and Satnam Singh on the Tabla, JK recited Dharmeek sangeet in his rendition of some of his favourite Kuldip Manak releases.

In addition to Tru Skool, JK has been taken some guidance from Ustad Pritam Singh to help expand his vocal capabilities and knowledge. JK is full of great admiration and has the utmost respect for both his Ustads who have helped him tune up his performance.
