Jay-O was born on Dec. 15, 1985. His parents immediately noticed there was a call on his life & they were amazed to see his love for music at such an early age. They supported him and encouraged him to develop his gift. Brought up in the church, Jay-O was influenced by gospel music from the start. At age 5 he began to play the drums, and by age 12 Jay-O had learned to play Piano & saxophone "by ear." But his true love was singing and song writing. Jay-O also ventured out, joining an R&B group and was signed to a record deal by a major label at the age of 15. Jay had the opportunity to travel & experience life on the road, perform in front of thousands, as well as learn the ins-&-outs of the music business. Some lessons were learned the hard way. With a song already on the radio and the group's album near completion, the group was dropped from the label due to disputes and legal issues between their management and the label. Just like that, it seemed it was all over. Jay-O found himself at a crossroad, desperate & searching for answers. It was then he rededicated his life back to Christ. See God had a higher calling for his life, this wasn't the end but simply the beginning. With a renewed mind and a clear vision Jay-O has accepted his calling and through his music his only mission is to give God ALL the glory and to be used to reach those who are lost. And Jay-O's prayer for himself and anyone listening is that God will Elev8 us higher and take us to another level in him...Bringing us a "Unique New Age Gospel Sound with a Message" & "Captivating Heart-Felt Lyrics" Introducing...Jay-O
