Meet Jeron Kim

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jeron Kim.

Jeron, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
Being born into an Immigrant Korean Family trying to pursue the “American Dream” was brutal. However, surviving evictions and living in poverty taught me that life is unfair and I had to get out of the funk myself. From being kicked out of school to being addicted to substances, I can admit that I failed to do so for a long time. While going through these obstacles, I used music to alleviate the void I had been feeling. I slowly started to realize that without making music, I would have no purpose in life. I decided then and there to find stability and to push in the direction of living a better life. I’ve worked part-time jobs serving tables and managing restaurants to support my purpose of making music. Flash forward to the present and I am performing with a following and live in my own Condominium.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
The biggest obstacle was doubting myself and blaming the cards I was dealt. It is all too easy to blame outside sources such as financing a dream and organizing your brand. However, I believe it is how you perceive these situations. and how you react.

Can you give our readers some background on your music?
My music represents the vibe of living in Los Angeles. The feeling of driving down the road with the sight of palm trees against the sunset. I target the soul of human beings rather than telling people what I have and what I’m able to do. I make music for the feelers and the dreamers. I make music for the lost and the poor. That is what sets me apart.

What is “success” or “successful” for you?
I believe success is such a fleeting feeling. Personally, I already feel successful and I am always willing to grow with the success I feel. Success is when you are happy with your life but never complacent. Success is the art of pursuing a dream and appreciating the journey while completing tasks you have set out to do. People think there is an end to what success is but, in the end, it is whether or not you are proud of yourself.
