After years of development, 2014 proved a realization for Buffalo, NY native John Jacob Hannibal V, to become a Pop singer and producer, bringing light to Hvnnibvl - derived from his surname, though the “A’s” are replaced with “V’s” to represent his title.
In 2018, HVNNIBVL saw success through collaboration with frequent Zedd collaborator, artist KDrew. Their single Body of Gold was featured in Apple Music’s “Hot Tracks” and “A List: Dance” for weeks in the March/April period. 2018 single More Than Enough also received great notoriety. In February 2019, HVNNIBVL relocated to Los Angeles, CA, to make a name for himself in the community as a performer and continue his artistry, through headlining spots at UCLA and The Satellite, as well as notable releases with FelMax and With Løve. 2020 marks a renewal period into a more introspective sound through his “Reasonably, Relative” EP, slated for October 2020.
