Call in to speak with the host

Up-and-coming soul crooner Bashiri Asad reveals how he went from a mere hired musical hand to full-fledged artist. “I started off in a couple of party bands in my hometown of Indianapolis. I was at a show once and I’d just come offstage and was sitting in the bar talking to some friends when someone came up over to me and whispered in my ear, ‘You know, they’ll respect you more if you write your own music,’” he tells Jammin Jukebox Radio host Delta Dawn. “That stuck with me. I’d never written a song before, but over the next few months I wrote 10—and they all went on my first album.”
