He began writing music at the age of 12 as he was inspired by the likes of Montell Jordan, Avant, Brandy, Usher and Ludacris. This passion pushed him to record on his own as he showcased his musical creativity through nostalgic melodies while maintaining a very modern R&B feel.
His debut single “Twenty Ten” was released In Nov of 2017 which was inspired by a past conversation that he had with his friend who was detailing about missing his past love and wishing that time could be re winded to the year 2010. Now In 2018 JNYR is looking to have a breakout year with his forthcoming single “No Matter Where” and “untitled EP” that will be released in March.

A lot of my musical inspiration comes from everyday interactions and I use them to bring others into my world as I want them to accept and understand my art form. This year a lot of people are going to see what I’m fully about as I will continue to challenge myself musically and career wise"
