Having just formed in 2014, North of Nine is already seizing attention with their vivaciously charismatic sound; a merger between pop, soul, funk, and more. Their lead single “Can It Be You?” delivered a solid intro to the world, only helped by the fact that their manager/producer is the notorious Randy Jackson of Grammy and American Idol fame.
The Los Angeles-based group is fronted by nineteen-year-old Jackson Guthy, who started as a solo artist and won our love during his two performances on Ellen. We were loving the energetically sprightly sound with which his new act has been working, so we wanted to find out what else Guthy would be listening to this summer. Check out his custom playlist for BlackBook HERE, as well as more on the band HERE.
