About J.Ven

Born in Racine, Wisconsin -- J.VEN was raised in a series of foster homes, the first of which made a huge impact on him. His foster mother, Brenda, had him join the church choir and got him into piano and voice lessons at 8 years old. Through these lessons and weekly mass, J.VEN discovered his passion for performance and continued pursuing the arts. It was that same foster mother, Brenda, who (several years later) would take J.VEN to his first audition for P.L.A.Y. Productions' (community theatre) Oliver. From then on J.VEN knew that being a performance artist was his path.

After graduating Park High School he would go on to attend NYU's Tisch School of the Arts in the Meisner Acting program. Due to financial constraints J.VEN was forced to take a year off of school -- during which he worked as a server to fund his first recording at CRC studios Chicago. J.VEN was then accepted into USC Thornton's School of Music where he is finishing his Popular Music emphasis in Vocal Performance B.M. degree.

J.VEN has recently released his collaboration with producer Christofi on "Don't Need You" a song which he has co-written and performed vocals on. "Don't Need You" won an A&R contest through Discovery Project and Insomniac Events and was featured at Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) 2016.

"Standing in your truth, I mean really living in a way that is reflective of who you are in your bones is one of the hardest things to do in this life. It really is. We toss it around 'Be true to yourself' but it's hard. I hope that my music inspires people to embody their truth-- to find their power and their magnificence. We put these limitations on ourselves 'I can't do this, I won't be that' but if you can imagine greater for yourself beyond the stereotypes, beyond outside expectations, beyond fear of scrutiny.. the ONLY thing that can/will limit you is your own imagination." -- J.VEN
