J.R., also known as Courtney Peebles is a Christian singer producer that was former signed to Cross Movement Records where he released two albums Metamorphosis and Life By Stereo. He has since left to independently make music. He released his first Mixtape named Murray's Grammar, New Rules and gave it away for free.

It's hard to put this album in one musical genre because there are so many different styles throughout. He draws from rock, soul, hip-hop, alternative among others throughout the album. The list of influences that he lists on his Facebook page sums it up well Sade, Kenna, 4th Avenue Jones, Lenny Kravitz, Sting, U2, Coldplay, The Beatles, Prince, Radiohead, and N.E.R.D. There are a handful of times that the music reminded me of Lenny Kravitz and Kenna definitely came to mind numerous times throughout the album. I have been a big fan of Kenna so as far as I'm concerned that's a good thing.
