JK biography

Label : X-energy. Producers : Davide Riva, A.Pignagnoli. JK's vocalist's real name is Marta Simlat. Marta began singing in her native Krakow when she was still at school. She sang in a rock trio called Tino's Band. The name of JK was chosen by chance. "We were looking for something short, easy to say and something that was catchy. JK it's easy for people to remember" explains Marta.

The first single You Make Me Feel Good was a chart success in Europe and Canada. The chorus was covered in 1994 by JV Project, in their single Feel Allright. After that Marta became a part of the group and the singles Beat It and the classic Italo track You and I were released (thanks to the success of You and I in France her photo was on the cover of the Dance Machine 6 compilation) with many beautiful remixes. You and I peaked # 3 in Israel. In 1996 the track My Radio was released. The vocalist's voice seemed to be different, whereas Marta remained the official leadsinger. The maxi contained a disco version, but also a great euro version. It took Europe by storm and opened the Japanese market for the artist. Afterwards an explosive Megamix was released.

There are some rumors according to which Martha can't sing. Famous vocalists Jenny Bersola and Sandy Chambers are thought to have taken part to the project, though they were not credited. Annerly Gordon contributed to songwriting, her name is written in the credits of Sweet Lady Night.

After the song Sweet Lady Night, which was accompanied by a sizzling video, we did not hear anything from J.K. until 1998, when the song Go On was released. Zeetah Massiah did vocals on Sweet Lady Night. Vocalist on Go On is still unknown so far.

Then a year after she came back with Deep In The Night. In a Canadian interview, she told an album was planned afterwards.

Marta describes herself as a reliable and a perfectionist person, as well as being a little lazy and vain ! She likes cinema, cats, chocolate mousse and her Italian boyfriend.

2001 : JK came back with a new single called Make Me Feel.

2002 : she will release a new single soon. It's called Hit My Heart. You & I was re-released under the Spanish label Wanchu Music.

2004 : Hit My Heart was covered by the Benassi Bros feat Dhany and it was this time a big hit. You & I was covered by the project Maximum Lush.

2005 : new single of Benassi Bros feat Dhany is once again a remake of a single by JK single. This time, it will be Make Me Feel.
