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.
