Rising Stars: Meet Jamarius Leeks

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jamarius Leeks.

Hi Jamarius, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
I was born and raised in and around central Florida. I fell in love with music at a young age listening to 90s- 2000s R&B that my mom would be playing during our car rides. If it wasn’t for her, music would not be a part of me. Since 13, I’ve been working on writing and recording music but it wasn’t until after graduating high school, I decided to pick up audio engineering professionally then moved to LA. Currently, I’m working at Retro LA studios in Studio City. Recently released a song called “Keep Calling” and also I have a song with Problem and Snoop Dogg called “Dim My Light” that comes out October 1st. I’m pretty excited for what’s coming next.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
It has not been a smooth road at all but that’s life. Moving across the country was definitely a leap of faith but I have God by my side so things have always worked out even when I thought that it wouldn’t. I feel blessed.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I am a recording artist, songwriter, producer and audio engineer. I make mostly R&B music but I’m open to all genres. I’m really just getting my foot in the door in the industry and my goal is to make music that people love and relate too…

Is there anyone you’d like to thank or give credit to?
My family and friends who have supported me since day 1 and still push me to keep going everyday deserve all the credit. Success isn’t possible without them. Especially my mom.
