Within the last two years this New Orleans-based producer has dispersed his atmospheric productions across 70 cities and at over 300 shows in the US alone. His sound has been categorized as “electrifying soul-hop” whose core is best described by Atlanta producer DISTAL as, “Layered, intelligent design with a simple and easily digestible delivery.” His collaborations in New Orleans have led him to become the winner of the 2018 Big Easy Music Award for Best DJ/Electronica, performed at Boiler Room's Future Sound of New Orleans showcase , as well as founding the beatmaker showcase Dolo Jazz Suite. AF has toured with artists such as Durazzo, Prism House, Beautiful Bells, and has opened for Glitch Mob, Om Unit, Quantic, Lapalux, Young Fathers, and the 2016 Mad Decent BUKU Party (feat: Yellow Claw, NGHTMRE, Louis The Child, and Jazz Cartier).

Her pedigree as a talented singer and songwriter has led her to be a breakout independent artist touring in the US and internationally.
A mid-west born, northern California raised, Los Angeles transplant, JaVonté grew up with the best of musical influences: his mother’s love for church and Gospel music, and the years his father and family exposed him to soulful R&B and Hip-Hop classics.
When he is not touring the world and sharing the stage with Ms. Gladys Knight as a young “pip”, he is writing and recording his own signature tunes. His smooth yet piercing voice, and witty emotion evoking lyrics have allowed him to work along side Kendrick Lamar, landing him a Grammy for background vocalist on the album “To Pimp A Butterfly”. Aside from the vocals, he has also written for the likes of TGT (Tank, Ginuwine, & Tyrese), and Syd of the Internet.
Stay tuned for JaVonté's anticipated upcoming solo and collaborative releases.
