J. Dash is a prodigy who performed his first concert at age 5. By the time he was 8 years old, this classically trained pianist loved to play Mozart for his family and friends. Throughout his teens, however, he cut his teeth playing in school bands, as well as various blues and jazz bands. A rapper, songwriter, producer, film composer, engineer, and multi-instrumentalist, this Renaissance man also holds a degree in Computer Science from the University of Florida.
Although having already amassed an impressive collection of material over the years, J. Dash's pulse-pounding dance sensation, "WOP" recently went double-platinum. In 2011, he founded SlapDash Productions; a boutique firm specializing in artist management and music production/licensing for TV and film. He also created JAX Beat Battle as a way to inspire, and pour into the music community in his hometown of Jacksonville, FL.
J. Dash now hopes to spark the next generation of musicians and artists of all kinds to push the arts culture forward. He believes by exposing kids to all areas of creative arts and associated business, we can increase the speed of intellectual development and create a new job market centered in the intersection of arts and technology.
