JSPH grew up in Northern Kentucky and recalls an inevitable passion to write and sing. At a young age he discovered a love for artists ranging from Boys II Men, Prince and Sam Cooke. He would copy down the lyrics of songs as a child, study them, then perform them in front of family and classmates. While pursuing a law degree, he would sneak into the fine arts library and recalls writing lyrics in his casebooks during class. Instead of raising his voice as an advocate in the courtroom after law school, JSPH decided to continue crafting his voice into a unique musical sound on the stage.
