When Life Hands You Lemons... has everything you could want out of a feel good album and shows the diversity that J-Bones is capable of. From the aggressive down beat vibe track that is “Green Machine” to the nod your head catchiness of J-Bones debut single “Love Drunk Punk”. The blend of hip-hop, reggae, punk and even a little hardcore has led J-Bones to play what he refers to as “guitar-driven hip-hop”.
“The title is self explanatory; everybody has those bad days where life throws everything at you including the kitchen sink.” J-Bones stated when asked about the new EP. “My answer to all that... smoke weed.” This laid back mantra is what shaped many of the ideas and themes that Bones touches upon on the album. J-Bones, a strong advocate of marijuana, believes that it opens his mind, adding a new angle to the creative process and a better perspective on life. This also shows through on the musical construct and lyrical content on When Life Hands You Lemons. “I find writing a song is much like constructing a puzzle, all of my songs start off as a simple melody in my head. Piece by piece it is put together until it becomes something I am truly proud of and proud to share with other people.” – J-Bones.
