BACKSTAGE WITH: JAIR | JAIR MUSIC on SPOTIFY | LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA
Your bio says that you’ve been making music since the age of 7 – that’s crazy impressive. What was it that got you inspired at such a young age?
A lot of my family & friends for real. Also around that age, there were a lot of video games & movies dropping with fire soundtracks that you had to know being in the mix. I would be rapping these songs back with my own little twist & the reactions people would give me inspired me a lot.
You’ve been putting out new music week for over 30 weeks, wow! How are you able to do it? Tell us a little bit about that process and the challenges you’ve faced.
Yes! First & foremost I’m rocking with a super producer that’s delivering heat nonstop, a supportive team, & staying focused.
I’m forever writing or recording so preparation for sure keeps things afloat. One challenge I would always have to hurtle was last minute uploading! That itself delayed a few releases from specific platforms.
What do you want people to know about you as an artist?
I want people to know that I’m for sure going to ride any record they hear me on. Whether it’s a R&B , pop, dance/hall track I want people to already know JAIR is about to come with some fire.
What song do you currently have on repeat?
Damage by H.E.R.
What’s the best advice you would give yourself if you were just starting out your career today?
If I were just starting out today, I’d tell myself “Know when & how to block out what’s not for you”.
What can we expect from Jair in 5 years? Where do you hope to see yourself?
In 5 years you can expect some international shows, tours, even some partnerships with some popular brands. I can see myself investing time & energy into other entertainment avenues such as acting or gaming but more so a symbol of a change & hope in my community.
