Born, Jordan Shannon, and hailing from West Philadelphia, Ms. Kathos has
been performing since the age of 3, and started her career as a
full-time dancer while attending the Creative and Performing Arts High
School of Philadelphia. She wrote raps and made beats in her free time,
but during the day she trained in all styles of dance including ballet,
modern, jazz, tap, hip hop, and broadway. Her dance skills opened up
opportunities for her to perform all around the country, but as time
went on Joie grew more passionate about the art of music and attended
University of New Haven for Music and Sound Recording, and began
crafting herself as a lyricist, writer, and producer.
