JANUARY THE ARTIST / Bio

Born and raised in California, January began singing and dancing around the house by age four. There was obvious potential by the reactions of family members as age four became age five and so on. Heavily influenced by the mid 90's R&B and Hip-Hop, the young starlet would freestyle lyrics and refrains creating songs that later hit paper. Inspirations like Aaliyah, Brandy & Mariah Carey impacted her vocal & song-writing abilities even at a young age. Musical influences in other genres like Alternative Rock/Metal stem from the younger years as well, serving as the foundation to what is now the classy lounge yet electric sounds of J.S. music. Performing original material in talent shows and later touring the Alameda County middle schools singing songs to help fight against tobacco was not enough time holding a microphone, or being on stage. Dance being the other love and passion, began taking to forefront in January's life. Since the age of fourteen, performing in countless competitions, exhibitions & battles became second nature. After six years of dancing with four different companies, teaching classes and workshops, it was time to get back to business; singing. Music, not money drives a true artist to go above and beyond their predecessors. Through song and lyric J.S. artistically sheds light on the darker side of happiness, the struggle before the goal and the fight to continue through the opposition.
