Although his commanding vocal presence demands immediate attention, listeners quickly learn that J Wise’s tough exterior is balanced with intelligence and an old soul. Originally hailing from Brooklyn, NY, J Wise was still a young child when tragedy struck his family, and he was forced to learn that the world is not always a pretty and kind place.

“The more you think you know, the more you know that you know nothing. There’s more behind it, but I’d rather let the people figure it out by listening to the music.
