Jay Kartier, named for his brilliant smile and affluent style; was born Jason Brown on the island of Jamaica, and spent his early years growing up in musically rich but economically poor surroundings of inner-city Kingston life. The clash of being surrounded by natural beauty but back dropped against the harsh reality of growing up in the ghettos of Jamaica's capital city, helped to shape his social understanding and musical voice which is evident in his sometimes aggressive but always soulful lyrics and melodies.
As he grew older the sounds of reggae and R&B which emanated from almost every stereo and juke box began to influence his musical style and put him on the path towards his current 'sound'. Although heavily influenced by reggae superstars Sanchez in his early days, JK prides himself on striving to carve out his own unique place in the music industry, always attempting to to bring across something different in music.
