"Something in you tells you that your purpose is greater than any rejection you may experience. Deep inside it roars setting you a part from your surroundings. You cant help but have the drive to be exactly what has been planted in your soul from birth. Me, well you can expect me to sew a seed that has been manifesting in me for some time now."
The 25 year old singer/producer/writer has been making noise since the age of two. Hailing from Birmingham, AL her extradonary talent has wowed many, and has been a source of encouragement to those who cross her path.
Friends and family say that all JazzMine needs is the spotlight and she comes to life. Life groomed her for her role at a very young age as she led many talent shows, competitions, and stage plays. Eager to learn an instrument, her mother placed her in piano at the age of 9. "I remebemer my mother trying to place me in voice lessons just for fun. I sang, 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow' for the first time and to my instructors amazement he told my mother there was really nothing he had to teach me. I then transitioned to classical pieces. Ive just always had feeling when I opened my mouth to sing. It just felt right." At the age of 12 she was introduced to her passion for guitar. At the age of 14 JazzMine began her professional journey as she joined a gospel group named 'Message'.
Her writing is said to be beyond her age. Her love for metaphors could be found in her mature use of word play. At a very young age she would take objects and paint very vivid pictures. Competing in oratorical competitions and essay writing as a creative avenue, she began to translate her artistic intelligence into music. She took her gifted skills a step further as she released her ep "Loves Bullet" with the help of Byron the Aquarius. To her amazement the EP spread over the world, receiving rave reviews.
With her eclectic taste she is able to create anything her heart can speak of. Influenced by Nina Simone, Erykah Badu, Lauryn Hill, King, Prince and so much more..she is truly in a lane of her own. Working to release her next album, she continues to receive love from multiple radio stations and blogs.
She is a dose of old, but truly a twist of somehting new. Daring to create outside of the box, JazzMine Garfield truly does not desrve any ordinary packaging.
