J. Quest

J. Quest (born in 1967 in Brooklyn, New York) was a male R&B singer from the 90's. He began singing in public when he was 10 years old touring the USA as a soloist with the New York Boys' Choir.

In 1993, J. Quest met singer Lisa Lisa while in the studio with his manager and through her, he was introduced to producer, Junior Vasquez, who asked J. Quest to sing on several tracks on which he was working on.

Those two tracks later appeared on his debut album. A year later, J. Quest appeared on the movie soundtrack, "Jason's Lyric" with the song, "Up and Down."
In 1995, J. Quest released his debut album, "The Quest is On" on Mercury Records. The album didn't appear to make the charts at all.
The only single to chart was "Anything" which managed to peak at #94 on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart, staying on the chart for 5 weeks.

After that, it seems as if J. Quest has faded into obscurity. Nothing much has been heard from him since.

I was a D.J. in a record pool when this came out. Pretty sure I still have the 12" of this in my attic. Great memories.
