Alter-egos have always been an interesting aspect in music. From mask-wearing, name and voice changes, and content directional changes, providing the artist a way to stretch themselves, forcing them to think with a different hat and sometimes unleash their inner crazy (oftentimes for a greater good). Gone The Hero, the new moniker of Jneiro Jarel, focus is for our greater good. “Talking Shadows” speaks to an artist upholding their integrity, melancholic in tone, which could be interpreted as the sadness of not being able to reach these wanna be emcees. Gone The Hero will be making his debut on forthcoming JJ Doom album Butter, which will feature remixes of tracks from the Keys to the Kuff and new material, with Gone the Hero album expected to release in 2014.
