Jean Morisson and I met Facebook to Facebook, then eventually face to face last month when we had a fabulous girls night out at Gyu-Kaku here in Los Angeles. Don’t let looks deceive you – for an exquisitely petite uber hip chick, she is more than capable of delivering  powerhouse vocals with a raw sensuality, and healthy dose of funk from our mutual friend Nile Rodgers, that will have you on your feet dancing before you know what hit you. Congratulations on the success of the new single Jean! As predicted, your killing it!

(New York, NY – October 24, 2012) – Jean Morisson’s independent funky, edgy Pop release, “NAUGHTY featuring Nile Rodgers,” debuts at #40 on the Billboard R&R Top 40 Pop Indicator Chart on October, 23, 2012. This comes at a week where the competition was brutal, with major releases from Bruno Mars, Ke$ha, P!nk, Taylor Swift, PSY, Nicki Minaj, Maroon 5 and Fun.

“NAUGHTY,” just recently released, features the legendary Nile Rodgers on guitars. Nile also appears in the music video, directed by R3Y GUTI3RR3Z, the video game director that directed Jean Morisson’s band’s music video for XBox 360 launch title, Perfect Dark Zero.

Jean Morisson’s sound is a blend of Urban influenced Rock, with an edgy Pop-tinge, reminiscent of Rihanna, Justin Timberlake and Prince, and a live band of virtuoso musicians. As lead singer of MorissonPoe, Jean Morisson has been featured in video game tv shows, and the bands single “Glitter Girl *Evil Side*” premiered on MTV’s Jumbotron in Times Square, with Usher hosting.
