Jay Yung (Jacob Gabriel Dunn) was born in Indianapolis, Indiana on February 24, 1992. His family moved to Salt Lake City when he was 5 years old, in followings of their church. Jacob Dunn went through trials and tribulations and has faced challenges that helped him find his way to the man he has become today. God and Family have always been the foundation of who Jay Yung is. Jay Yung was raised by his parents, Randel and Delores and grew up with three siblings, two brothers and one sister; the family was an inspiration on his music. His two brother's are William, who plays the bass, and Matthew, who plays the drums and his Sister is Gloria, who was an amazing dancer. They were always there on the frontline encouraging him to never give up and being his full support system no matter how discouraging things may have been. Knowing that he always had his family’s love, blessings and moral support, was enough courage to push Jay Yung into who has become today, a young humble artist who tells his story through his music.
The spotlight and entertainment industry has always been Jay Yung's focus. He has had various parts in films like Disney's High School Musical 1 as an extra and has done back up dancing and modeling. He has come a long way as an artist. He started out doing local shows throughout Utah and has even opened up for rap Superstar E-40 Kid Ink. Jay Yung’s journey has only just begun. He has a great team behind him including, mentor and friend, Adnan Afridi-founder of N.A.Y.L.E, the staff at Dreamboxx Studios, and a tremendous amount of love and support from all his loving friends, family and fans!
