Pop/R&B / Singer/Songwriter / Producer
J-Hype learned how to make music before he learned how to tie his shoes, playing the piano at the age of 4, before later adding drums, bass, and guitar to his repertoire. He credits his early love of music to his parents, who kept his New York home filled with the sounds of The Beatles, Prince, Michael Jackson, Queen, Steve Wonder and many other great musicians. "By list...ening to those records, I had the best possible musical education I could've asked for" J says of his childhood. His music reflects the variety of his influences; J-Hype prides himself on creating music that is a blend of R&B, rock and pop in a style that has connected with fans all over the world who share a musical kinship with him. In a little over a year, his YouTube channel has received over 2.3 million views, and his digital download sales have reached close to five thousand, with well over 100,000 free downloads of the songs featured on his debut mixtape, I'm Not Like The Other Guys. One track, "New York City Gurls ft. AC" released on iTunes in January 2011, was featured in Billboard magazine. His version of John Lennon's "Imagine" was also featured on USAToday.com.
