A law school graduate turned singer-songwriter, JSPH’s passion for music-making and the career-tracking norm he was pushed into were constantly at odds, leading him to pursue a degree in an area he was not entirely sold on. When Pharrell picked up his first single, “Breathe” and featured it on a Beats1 playlist it only confirmed his talent as a musician and propelled him to continue making rhythm-soaked tracks. In fact, his song “ComeMyWay” was featured on the Netflix drama series, On My Block, which Newsweek described as the ‘best of the year’ in 2018. Since, then he’s independently amassed millions of streams on Spotify and Apple Music. And most recently, his music was featured on OWN’s Queen Sugar.
