J. Hoard’s music interweaves genres to articulate his vivid songwriting. His eclectic approach has yielded songwriting collaborations with artists such as Black Coffee -on the 2022 Grammy-winning "Subconsciously" album, Chance the Rapper - on the 2017 Grammy-winning “Coloring Book” album), and Brasstracks. Additionally, J. Hoard has worked closely with a host of jazz-experimental artists such as Jose James, Endea Owens, and the legendary Meshell Ndegeocello - J. is a singer on her 2019 Grammy-nominated “Ventriloquism” album. No matter the genre, platform, or language (as demonstrated through his backing vocals on the Latin Grammy-winning “Sobrevolando” Cultura Profetica album) J. Hoard possesses the essence of the Black church and allure of the Great White Way, usually with his arms stretched out like Whitney Houston, to ensure the audience is enriched while being entertained.
