Who Am I?
“Music is my essence. There are no boxes. I don’t see boxes when I create. Life is complex. I absorb my surroundings and express life as a musical soundtrack. I love beats, word twists, inventing sounds, contemplation, figuring it out. Sometimes I feel like telling stories through composing music, sometimes I feel like writing, singing. or rapping. I am an Ambassador to Curiosity. I love a blank canvas.”
“My name, JPRiZM, expresses who I am. I love diverse cultures and peoples. That name came because I have a vast appreciation for life and culture. Where I’m at musically is like a prism; prisms look different every time you look at them, always changing depending on which way the light is hitting them. With me, on any given day, that’s how I am artistically. When I create, I couldn’t tell you why I choose this sound, or decide to use that color, because even I don’t know at that moment.”
“When I create, I’m tapping into something that I don’t fully understand; I usually don’t until way later. I work off of feeling and energy and I do something because I feel it inside. It may not be a diamond right out of the case, but it’s real and it’s from my essence, my soul. We all owe it to this realm to share our perception of things with each other. That is how we grow. That is how we transcend. That is art.”
