J Brave’s intention is to inspire the remembrance of our divine nature. He learned to transform his trauma into triumph, turn his mess into a message, and shift suffering into a song to heal himself and inspire the world. His greatest gift has always been to bring people together, and he utilizes his music as a means to unify and connect us all.
His live shows fuse storytelling and fierce Hip Hop lyrics, and his DJ sets offer a selection of Global Bass and World Beats intended to celebrate the power of diversity.
During his travels through Egypt he had a massive spiritual awakening, and has since been plant based for 20 years as a part of his dedication to health and well-being.
As a former counselor for homeless and at-risk youth, he learned the importance of service during a nearly 10 year period working at four non-profit organizations.
He founded the legendary Venice Hip Hop collective the Luminaries, curates events under the brand Benevolence, and co-created Actualize Music Recording Retreats. He offers guidance to artists through Keys Of Kreation coaching, and he is a global ambassador for HAWKS Apparel.
Beyond all of his accomplishments and titles he is most proud of being a father to his beautiful children Simunye and Numi.
“I am simply a vessel allowing the Universe to express through me"
