The JT Project

ASCAP Award Winning, Billboard Chart Topping, Soul and Jazz

The JT Project: a multi-talented force of sound that brings forth a unique musical conceptualization: “a new genre in music called JT”. Adventurous and bold, Jacob Webb (Keyboards/Bass) and Todd Schefflin (Saxophone), leaders of The JT Project, knew that it would take more than just a passing interest in music to become the creative force that they envisioned. Jacob commands each stroke on the keyboard to awaken the soul with a touch of fire, and Todd caresses the notes to life with every breath.

The JT Project has independently released four critically acclaimed albums: Love Passion Correspondence Vol. 1 (2009), Love Passion Correspondence Vol. 2 (2012), Love Passion Correspondence Vol. 3 (2013), and Under The Covers (2014) featuring the single “Jetsetter," which topped the Billboard charts at #5.  For their 5th and most recent full length recording, The JT Project has partnered with record label Trippin N' Rhythm/Sony Music Entertainment to release the album entitled Moments of Change, featuring the hit single "Overdrive."

The JT Project is a musical collective, incorporating the most talented jazz and soul musicians in New York City. The members of the group have toured and recorded with major label legends such as Anita Baker, Aretha Franklin, Patti Labelle, Jaheim, Ashford and Simpson, Kenny Garrett, Joe, and Mulgrew Miller among many others.

Our latest single "Overdrive" ferociously climbed up Billboard's Contemporary Jazz Charts to #1 for three weeks straight, and has been play listed across terrestrial radio stations all over the country, as well as on SiriusXM, Music Choice, and Mood Music.  

The JT Project has had the honor of performing at the prestigious Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. as part of the ASCAP foundation Songwriters: Next Generation Series.  Click Here for a video of our Kennedy Center Performance.

In 2014 The JT Project was personally selected by Valerie Simpson of the legendary duo Ashford and Simpson as the 2014 recipient of The ASCAP Foundation's "Reach Out and Touch" award in honor of Nick Ashford.  Here is a video of Valerie Simpson's Speech and our performance during the ASCAP award ceremonies on Dec. 10, 2014 at Jazz @ Lincoln Center in NYC.  

The JT Project has also created their own record label JT Project Records, and production company in which they compose, produce, market, promote, and distribute music for artists both on and off the label.  Recent releases include the single  "Horizon" by the group S.O.A.R. which climbed to #1 on the "New & Active" Billboard and peaked at #17 on the main Billboard Chart.
