In what way is his stuff a 'new genre'???
I own the obligatory one JJ CD for when its the right moment - but it is too bland to listen to the whole thing. If an electric guitar and drums kicked in towards the end of 'Good People' and played a big rock finish I'd listen to it far more often
What I mean is that, if anyone does this laid back type of music and lazy low end vocals, they'll be compared to Jack Johnson. Take Donovan F. for instance. Since JJ came to the forefront first, DF will forever be in his shadows. Well, he should just stop touring with him altogether to stand apart.
