"J.Mike Houston"

As a fresh voice out of Houston, Texas, J MIKE is quickly and not-so-quietly building a fan base regionally and across the United States behind the power of his first official album, Insomniac Chronicles. In his hometown, he’s drawn a following by performing at local venues. But he’s building a brand by dazzling audiences in other parts of Texas, including Austin and San Antonio, reaching the West Coast with shows in Los Angeles, and making an impact in southern cities with hot music scenes like Atlanta.
Performing live in 2011 with the legendary funk/R&B group Cameo is an indication of the kind of success J MIKE has in mind for his own career. Also, he’s opened for Kirko Bangz, Bun B and WuTang Clan. He credits Lil Wayne and Kanye West as significant rap influences, and considers Michael Jackson a key influential figure earlier in life, listening to the late singer’s award-winning albums and multitude of hit songs as far back as he can remember. Like the King of Pop, J MIKE is showing early versatility in his style, and creating new ideas for his music.

This young recording artist says music has always been an essential part of his life, even when his early dreams involved a career in the NBA. Those pro basketball dreams were perhaps instilled early, in part, due to the excitement surrounding the Houston Rockets who won back-to-back championships when “Michael” was starting his first years of school, at an elementary school northwest of Houston. He would spend years developing his skills on the court before his passion for music ultimately won.

J MIKE’s debut album features the track Insomniac, which contains a lyric as a nod to his personal heroes. “My greatest inspirations are people you never heard of,” he delivers as a testament to his desire to break new ground with his new music. His often credits his father, a restaurant owner by trade, with guiding him in learning to effectively make decisions and choosing the right direction in life. His mother plays an active role in his career now, too, as a marketing force for her son’s online presence on social media sites.

J MIKE’s early life consisted of schooling and sports in his suburban Houston neighborhood. His younger sister, born seven years after him, was the first of the siblings to get a taste of the entertainment world when she worked as a professional child actor and model a decade ago. But the future performer missed no opportunities to dazzle family, friends and people everywhere he went with his Jackson-inspired dance moves.

J MIKE delivers his music and message to fans 24/7 thanks to a multiple online platforms, including his website, JMikeMusic.com, Twitter @JMike713, and a YouTube channel known as JMikeMusiic. His tracks can also be heard on Phenomenal Radio, a highly versatile Hip Hop radio station that plays Indie artists and has listeners in over 60 countries/territories.
