From his beginnings in Atlanta, Ga J was fascinated with guitar based rock and pop leaning toward bands that had strong melodic content and good harmony. Such influences as The Stones, Badfinger, Hendrix and later Pearl Jam, Blues Traveler, Match Box 20 and Third Eye Blind are of few of the many talents that inspired J and his own original style. After a stint of touring with cover and original bands in the southeast music scene J decided to leave the band for other pursuits. Though he stopped performing he never stopped playing and knew that one day he would return to his passion- music. Music was a strong influence in J's life from the beginning. "I have been fortunate in that I was always exposed to different styles of music growing up. My Father was a guitar player and my Mother played piano. Both of them had very diverse musical tastes and I think that influence helps you in your writing. I believe it opens up your melodic potential. I finally decided to produce some of my material. I guess it really is Better Late than Never. There is nothing I would rather be doing than playing and writing music - well almost?"
