Singer | Songwriter | "Too Late To Break Your Fall” is out now!
Back in the 80's, I just came back from Jamaica and was playing a lot of reggae music when I came up with the idea for the chorus of Maneater. It’s 40 years in the making, but here’s my reimagined version in the original reggae style.

I had the privilege of being a special guest on Play It Back Songs’ Music Monday Zoom call recently. Play it back immerses adolescent and young adult #cancer patients and #survivors in the world of #songwriting and music production. Music has an incredible power to heal, and it was heartwarming to see how the Play it Back artists embraced my message: “Nothing is stopping you from making music…don’t let the concept of ‘making it’ in the music business stop you from expressing yourself.” A big thank you to @teencanceramerica and #TheWho for supporting this life changing program.

Had an absolute blast taking the Kevin Jeanette design #Porsche tractor 🚜 for a spin, rocking that hand-painted pink helmet at #Rennsport7 ! 🏁 The tractor and the helmet are now on display at the Collier Revs Institute in Naples, FL – a must-visit for all you automobile and racing enthusiasts out there.
I'm thrilled to share that I'll be serving as a Celebrity Ambassador for @Teen Cancer America , an amazing charity co-founded by #RogerDaltrey and #PeteTownshend of The Who. This special organization aims to enhance survival rates and the well-being of teenagers and young adults with cancer by transforming hospitals to cater to their unique needs. Cancer has touched many of us, and I'm truly excited about the chance to assist teens in their fight against it. Additionally, I'm looking forward to supporting the charity's fantastic music program, "Play It Back," which enables patients and survivors to collaborate with music producers, honing their songwriting, performing, and recording skills. Let's make a difference together! -J.O. 👊 #OatesTok
