“She say i’m the man damn, telling my momma like I got a plan…” If you don’t know who, meet our very own, Rochester artist “Jay Hendo”.Jay's musical passion started.. yes you guessed it, in music class. In 2013 at Uprep High School, Jay would sneak out of lunch to record music with his music teacher, who helped him write his first few lyrics and ultimately became a support system and a reliable resource.
2018 marks the year where Jay officially recorded a song and decided to take his music career to the next level. Jay found his flow to match the new age music that helps his sound fit in perfectly with our hip-hop crowd.
As Jay grew as an artist he developed a skill to take advice from others, being open to learn as much as he could so that he could create a career from his musical talent. Jay makes music to describe the circumstances he grew up in as well as the experiences he gained along the way…resulting in classic masterpieces.
Jay Hendo has a story to tell in every one of his songs and the message he would like to spread with his music is that anything is possible and that coming from treacherous environments through poverty SHOULD NEVER STOP YOUR GREATNESS.
