From a city that continues to deliver talent that breaks out far beyond the Six, we welcome the sound of Toronto based Jhyve. Today, the singer, songwriter and producer -- who is known to his mother as Jamaal Bowry -- drops his triumphant smooth concept EP entitled The Heartbreak Experience. True to its title, the EP perfectly explores the ranges of emotion that one goes through while being heartbroken.

A subject explored throughout songwriting history is conquered by Jhyve as he effortlessly manages to encapsulate raw emotion through complex songwriting, light R&B melodies and production unwavering in quality.
