The Mighty Beginning
JMighty was born and raised in the limelight of Queens, New York in the midst of the music revolution of the 80’s and 90’s where Hip Hop, Electronic and Alternative Rock emerged as the main stays of the music industry. His parents exposed him to their generation of music, which included the likes of The Beatles, Elvis Presley and John Lennon. Combined with these inspirations his father began to teach him how to play the piano and write songs. He immediately took an intense interest and began to write songs about his life as a young kid growing up which was all about school crushes and learning how to live. His mother noticing this interest enrolled him in piano school where her learned to be classically trained. Using this newfound knowledge he continued to write and sing songs to whoever would listen however, he did not know how to fully utilize his talents in a productive way. Unfortunately, his passion for writing music simply became nothing more than a hobby and even though, taking music recording courses in college, JMighty followed his mother’s direction and entered the corporate world and began to work at a large bank.
Finding comfort in a well paying job and career, his desire and passion for music fell into the background. It wasn’t until 10 years of working at the bank that an abrupt life event forced him out of his cushy job and he began to wonder if a change in career toward his long held dream could actually be a reality. Facing pressure from another firm to be quickly hired and retain a much higher salary, JMighty turned to his faith in God and close family for guidance. With much struggle and debate he chose to go full steam ahead into the music production business.
Not knowing where to begin, he began reading for hours into the night and day about the nature of the business and enrolled in a multitude of online courses. He converted one of his spare rooms in Williamsburg, Brooklyn into a dedicated recording studio and began to invest time and money into building out a truly wonderful work environment where music making can flow freely. He would call his new studio Mighty House Studio, after his childhood favorite cartoon hero Mighty Mouse, who in his small stature and humble outward appearance was in reality a super strong and unstoppable force. JMighty always felt affinity with the character and he would honor that affinity with calling himself after him.
Over the following 3 years, JMighty through many struggles has amassed a ton of new knowledge and connections with like-minded individuals in his pursuit as a top singer, songwriter and music producer. Bore out of blood, sweat and tears many songs have been written and produced and in the coming months will be released to the world. His goal is that every song released will bring a new fan to his music and would eventually turn music production into a self-sustaining career. Through much prayer and perseverance this goal seems closer than ever before and along with his involvement in The Beat Disciples, JMighty and his music will be heard in a playlist near you!
