Biography

Since the age of 17, the multi-talented Singer/Songwriter/Producer has been on “the grind”, writing and producing for many of the music industry’s greatest. A protégée of Dallas Austin and a connoisseur of timeless legendary musicians, JAMM has spent countless hours in the “WaterLab” writing, producing, performing and mixing what has resulted in a unique sound reminiscent of a timeless artist of the past. The pure sound and real soul of JAMM's music is taking the ATL music scene by storm, where those who have had the privilege of hearing him (and his powerful ensemble), have become instant fans and left the venues begging for more. This guy is destined for stardom!!

This New Jersey native, now Atlantan, JAMM credits include his production for America's Legendary, Multi-platinum Pop Star, Michael Jackson (Stranger in Moscow), Platinum recording artist, Usher, Out of Eden (This Your Life, Day Like Today, I am the One) - for which he was presented with the prestigious Dove Award - and internationally acclaimed recording artist INOJ. Working with these and many other major artists have allowed JAMM to successfully venture into the worlds of Pop, Soul, Christian, Dance & R&B. Achieving multi-platinum status and continuing to make a significant mark on the writing and production front. But there's so much more beyond the music!

JAMM is also a talented recording artist & musician, delivering an eclectic, soulfully delectable sound that truly pushes the envelope on typical commercial type music of the last decade. He wows audiences in Atlanta's music hot spots weekly from behind his keyboard, and impresses them with his intimately acquainted lyrics laid perfectly to live instrumentation. "I want my music to spark nostalgia, at the same time give my fans that are on the hunt for a "real music" experience, a new experience in music. "I call it "feel-good" music…the timeless, nod-yo-head; reach your soul kinda stuff. I'm on God's time and simply awaiting my cue", says JAMM.

JAMM's "feel-good music" reintroduces the earth, wind & fire of live brass, keys and striking melodies that leaves us no choice but to wanna know and love it. His album, due to release in the fall of 2008, promises to be a rival among popular soul & R&B artists on the charts today. And yet with all his credits, thriving production and inevitable artist success, his hottest attraction extends far beyond music; he remains humble and real….true legendary star qualities.
