No Ring No Fling
Omaha Nebraska, home of national recording producer Terry Lewis, and successful recording acts 311, Buddy Miles, Manheim Steamroller, Mulberry Lane, Carol Rogers (of Sergio Mandez fame), and Preston Love is about to birth another great act--16 year old sensation Jasmine Thompson (aka - Jazz). Jazz is a Junior who attends Central High School in Omaha, Nebraska. She had never recorded anything until this-her debut album entitled 'No Ring No Fling'. To the surprise of many, she has put together a CD project worthy of national attention and Billboard recognition in the Crossover/Pop and Hip-Hop genres of music. Jasmine Thompson can best be described as a female rapper who can also sing. Five of the songs on the new release are a mixture of the two styles, with 3 songs performed in the traditional melodic singing tradition. Of particular interest are the cuts entitled 'Choices', 'Back Up', 'J-Slide', 'Party Up', and 'Just Like You'. The title cut 'No Ring, No Fling' and the remaining 2 songs are also strong enough to receive national radio rotation. In short, there are no weak songs on the CD! Jazz is a 5'9' 125 pound bundle of charisma, energy, and charm. She possesses an infectious personality, and has all the intangibles to succeed in the music business--qualities that cannot be easily taught. She has the right tools to make it in the same way national artists Bow Wow and Little Romeo were able to do at a young age. This Midwest Regional CD project proves that it is only a matter of months before someone of national stature notices her and gives her a major recording contract. Jasmine Thompson is multi-talented and well suited for the music business. Jazz brings many talents to the stage at once when she performs. In addition to being a marketable rapper/singer, she is an outstanding dancer and choreographer, as well as a drummer and percussionist. Jazz is a good songwriter as displayed by 4 of the songs on the CD that she co-wrote. Jasmine also has had modeling training under the direction of the John Robert Powers Agency of Minneapolis, MN. Her potential to be a successful singer/rapper, model, and an actress are all equal possibilities and probable outcomes in her not-so-distant future. This particular CD project is marketed mostly to those who look for party and teen-oriented music with a clean and positive message. Jazz does not believe in foul language and controversial lyrics. She is a product of a religious home and attends church regularly. When it comes to a party, however, she knows how to get people unto the dance floor in a major way. Despite the CD's softer, mainstream appeal, we have noticed that even hardcore hip-hoppers are getting excited about the potential of Jasimine Thompson. Adult and old school artists are equally impressed. In summary, Jazz's 'No Ring No Fling' music project resonates with a wide listening audience. Jasmine has also done a good job blazing the concert trail that is so necessary in helping to get a product promoted and distributed. This includes engagements in Chicago and Kansas City. Her guest star appearance at the Omaha Metro Area YMCA Youth Empowerment, Choices, and Abstinence Conference in Omaha, Nebraska was a big hit. So too was her guest appearance at the Beveridge Middle School 2006 Martin Luther King Jr. assembly. The chance to get Jasmine to come to your city and work with your school or youth group is a simple phone call away (402-390-0653). Hope to hear from you soon!
