Feeling a bit camera shy


The redundant sounds of a lot of the music in the industry actually stand as inspiration to Jonai Hollis even though they get on his nerves at the same time. Abstract or professional sounds from some of his favorite artists and producers also inspire him to extract creativity in his recording studio. The art of singing has been pursued for 30 years, but in 2003, the mind of a producer began to brew. It didn't take much time to consider the fact that if Lip Gloss was "Poppin'," then certainly a message with equal or greater value could be "poppin'" as well. A high school musician from Middletown DE walking around the living room enjoying an incredible peanut butter and jelly sandwich, came up with the name for himself, "JEHster" to describe his initials made into a nickname that fits his personality. Still a comedian, loving to have fun in the studio, JEHster has embraced his actual name as a "stage name" and innovated more styles of music into his customized library other than comedy and Ne-Yo soul. Focus remains on the art of vocal sounds and harmony, covers of varieties of music including 50's style doo wop, A Capella covers of top 40 music, harmonized rap covers, original Ne Yo soul, and of course music that makes people do dances they never knew they were capable of. Or at least dances HE never knew he was capable of. Dancing wasn't a skill in high school, but while hanging out with Adam and Darnell Harris (high school singing group/best friends) and their family, it eventually became a hobby and a great skill. Not to mention a great performance contribution. Singing, dancing, performing, and producing is the meaning of life to Jonai Hollis. While it appears as though artists are shaped by the industry and changed by media and the world, this entertainer vows to never be tarnished, or influenced by fame, fortune, or the ways of the world to follow trends, as standing out and expressing the art of his music is engraved in his heart, passion, and existence.

In January 2015, his first album was released on most online vendors (iTunes, Spotify, Google Music, etc). He also made an appearance on Kiss 101.7 "Download or Delete" with the listeners' vote to download his song "Donde Esta My Love" in 2010.
