From the venue:
Jhai has always been musically gifted. From a young age, she was singing, performing, and playing a variety of instruments including guitar, piano and flute. Jhai was born in Ridgewood, New Jersey and raised in St. Louis, Missouri. Growing up, she was always surrounded by music and talented musicians. These talented musicians were her family. Her father sings and plays guitar, her mother plays flute, her grandmother was the legendary Fontella Bass, whose best known for her 1965 classic hit "Rescue Me" and her grandfather was Lester Bowie, a renowned trumpeter. Music is in her blood. At the age of 11, she performed for four major record labels with a kid band called "No Broccoli". These record labels included Def Jam, Sony, Atlantic and Interscope. When she was 14, she performed on The Today Show's kid edition of "The Voice" alongside her younger sister. Now at the age of 25, she is still carrying on the legacy and is passionate about developing her technical musical skills and theoretical knowledge, and achieving the next level of success. She released her debut EP "Ethereal" in December of 2016 which was produced by her brother Gibraun a.k.a. Iso and written by herself and her cousin Niaja Henry. Today she is producing and writing her own records and pursuing her dream. "I'm determined to reach the top."
