Biography

DJ JST (a name derived from his initials, but pronounced gist) is a classically trained violinist and graduate from the University of Michigan, School of Music. In 2004 after working in Information Technology for several years, he decided that it was time to bring his focus back to music and pursue a career that he could be passionate about.

He plunged himself into studying the art of mixing and electronic music production with a primary focus on European DJ influences. Shortly after, he started spinning house parties in his South End neighborhood, and quickly gained notoriety to become the Sunday night resident at one of Boston's hottest lounges, 28 Degrees. In both June 2006 and June 2007, he opened for Tracy Young at Boston Pride and continued on his way by making appearances at Felt, Rumor, and Shine. He also headlined at Purr in Seattle during Seattle's Pride weekend 2007, sharing the spotlight with Jenna Drey, Alyson, Reina, Lauren Hildebrandt, Jacinta and Erin Hamilton.

Most recently, DJ JST headlined Massachusetts Youth Pride Festival, and Salem MA's very first Pride Party Cruise along with Jenna Drey. DJ JST along with Billboard recording artists Jenna Drey & Jenn Cuneta shared the spotlight on Fusion Radio's Float in the 2008 Chicago Pride Parade.

DJ JST explains "For me, music is easy to fall in love with, because I know that it will always be there. I am an autobiographical DJ and I spin the tracks which hold meaning in my life. When I am behind the decks, I'm not just playing music. I am expressing myself to the world and sharing with those who care to listen".

Now working on some exciting new production and collaboration projects in the studio, DJ JST is on his way to becoming one of the hottest commodities on the DJ circuit.

Nothing compares to the love

A forgiving soul are you

When you’re with me
When you’re by my side
I rejoice

Free Love

Written By: William C Friar, III, Zelma Davis

FREE LOVE

(1st verse)
All around the world
Everywhere you go
Share the one thing
The one thing that costs nothing
Always have some
Always give some
There is plenty

So keep on giving

(Chorus – repeat x3)
Come all, time to give love
Come all, time to get love
Free Love, Keep it coming
Free Love, Keep it going

(2nd verse)
All around the world
Every boy and Girl
You got to listen (listen)
To what I’m saying
You got to touch somebody
Reach somebody
Love somebody today

Just keep on giving…

(Chorus – repeat x3)
Come all, time to give love
Come all, time to get love
Free Love, Keep it coming
Free Love, Keep it going

Standing Up

Written By: William C Friar, III, Amber Dirks

Standing up
On my own
And I’ll be staying strong
Got to go
Need to leave
On to brighter things

Better Days
On my way
The clouds are clearing
Broken chains
Wings are free
In the wind, soaring

(Chorus)
Standing up
Standing Strong
Right where I belong
On my own
Staying Strong
Right here to sing my song

Repeat

(2nd Verse)
Standing up
On this stage
Being here with you
In the light
Of this day
Brightness shines on through

Standing up
With your Love
I will carry on
Sing my song
Words I sing
Of love and higher things

(Chorus)
Standing up
Standing Strong
Right where I belong
On my own
Staying Strong
Right here to sing my song

Repeat
