A Discussion With J. Erving & Jensen McRae

A Discussion With J. Erving & Jensen McRae

Join Human Re Sources and The Orchard for an intimate conversation featuring Human Re Sources founder J. Erving alongside singer-songwriter Jensen McRae. In celebration of Black History Month, J. and Jensen will explore themes around intersectionality, representation, and the instrumental role each plays in shaping the music industry.  

Jensen describes herself as a “wordgirl.”  She once said, “Everything I do is about, and in service of, words and stories”. Jensen’s music explores all aspects of identity, and explores themes like depression and unrequited love. Her music is inspired by Stevie Wonder, Carole King, Alicia Keys, and James Taylor. 

You may have seen Jensen on Twitter when she imagined what a song about getting a COVID-19 vaccination would sound like to Phoebe Bridgers. This “preemptive cover” put Jensen in the spotlight, and even captured the attention of Phoebe Bridgers, herself. Listen to “Immune” here.

Julius “J” Erving is the founder of Human Re Sources, an industry-leading digital distribution company whose clients include: Ant Clemons, Pink Sweat$, Baby Rose, Jensen McRae and more. Founded in 2018, Human Re Sources has powered the rise of numerous critically acclaimed top artists crossing over one billion streams for projects released under its banner in less than eighteen months. Since founding the company, J. Erving has established Human Re Sources as a formidable independent powerhouse of talent development. In 2020, Human Re Sources joined forces with The Orchard. His overall goal is to carry on with the fostering and the development of great artists while delivering their music to a global audience. 

Join us here on February 24 at 5pm ET / 2pm PT.
