Music Director

JC is a musician and actor whose main pastime is writing love letters to the Chicago arts scene. He makes a unique brand of “indiesoul” with some of Chicago’s best musicians in an eponymous project (formerly The Uptown Sound). Sometimes you can catch him with electro-r&b duo, the K.i.D., or as a solo singer/poet. He’s played several Chicago venues from sweaty dance parties at the gritty Door#3 to laidback cabaret nights at City Winery to a sold out House of Blues. Beyond Chicago, He’s been tapped for a week-long residency in Brooklyn at a one-of-a-kind multimedia salon called Nightcap Riot and also to play in Milan for its mayor’s reception dinner for their new sister city, Chicago.
