Today we’d like to introduce you to Jmsey.
Hi Jmsey, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
I currently am in Hobo Johnson + The Lovemakers. The past three years have been amazing, during which time I was able to craft my own sound and style. Now I’ve started to release my own music as well as to continue being a member of the group.
I relocated to Los Angeles in February 2020!
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
My family are Vietnamese refugees. When my parents fled their country, they ended up in England. I was born in England and upon realizing most of our family were in the States, we applied for greencards and moved when I was 13.
That being said, pursuing music as a career was not the most welcomed idea in my family.
I did it anyway and I don’t regret it one bit.
This industry is tough, so starting it without much support, I think was an odd blessing in disguise.
Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I have a humbly-sized discography. Thus far, I have a self-produced EP with a track that features Hobo Johnson. After a little hiatus (covid), I’ve come back into the world swinging with a slightly more energetic and fun vibe.
I used my time during lockdown to really figure out what type of music I wanted to make moving forward.
Where do you see things going in the next 5-10 years?
I think post-pandemic artists and people alike will have realized the importance of having multiple things going. I don’t think anyone expected live music/events to stop so drastically, but clearly it is possible.
I think there will be more focus on unique ways to present “live” music whether that be higher quality production in streaming or who knows.
