J786 is America’s first virtual artist. Like France’s popular electronic artist Daft Punk, J786 will only be seen in public in his robotic/bionic disguise. J786 is the only artist whose purpose in the music business is to raise funds and awareness for Free Clinics. One hundred percent of J786’s music related income is donated to help uninsured Americans across the nation who suffer from not being able to afford proper health care.
Besides proper education, J786 believes the most fundamental right every American should posses is free health care. The corrupt and exploitive medical industry and US Congress hand-in-hand are responsible for leaving over 50 million Americans without any medical insurance or medical care.
J786 has negotiated terms with Starbugs Records that under no circumstances will his identity be revealed, nor will one cent from the label or other sources of his music related income be paid to him. Instead, all proceeds and music related income would be directly deposited into bank accounts related to the National Association of Free Clinics (www.freeclinics.us).
Deciding to write and sing songs of a worldwide appeal resulted is his first pop single, “Rock Tonight” which made it to #4 on Billboard’s dance/club charts with the help of some of America’s hottest DJ’s: Ralph Rosario, Dave Aude, Jason Nevins and others who worked on the remixes.
As a Native American, J786 lives near his tribal area in the Sacramento Valley of California. He maintains a very simple and modest lifestyle. Since the age of 16, J786 has been writing, collaborating and performing with many different bands and genres of music.
While volunteering at the Soup Kitchen for the homeless located in Los Angeles, California, J786 met a few Hollywood celebrities who enjoyed listening to his music. They encouraged him to meet an influential individual who would be able to get him a record deal. J786 met a fellow Native American and music producer by the name of Ed Silvercloud. Their meeting resulted in signing a recording contract with the indie label Starbugs Records.
“I love music, but humanitarianism is my passion,” remarks J786. “If I can use music to give to those what was denied to my mother, then I will work day and night until it happens.”
The star plans to release singles, “I Like You” and “Working Hard” in May via iTunes and other online distribution networks. If his sound is any measurement of J786’s foregoing success, then the future is now.
