At a young age JSPH discovered a love for artists like: Boys II Men, Prince & Sam Cooke. He would copy down the lyrics of songs as a child, study them, then perform in front of family and classmates. After undergrad at the University of Kentucky, JSPH pursued law. He would often sneak into the fine arts library and recalls writing lyrics in his casebooks during class. Instead of raising his voice as an advocate in the courtroom after law school, JSPH decided to continue crafting his voice into its unique musical sound on the stage.
