Biography

Jovan’s story is every bit as multifaceted as what he brings to the table artistically. Born in the Bronx and raised in Atlanta, Jovan’s childhood memories are split between a mother who loved R&B and introduced him to music by playing artists like Marvin Gaye, Lionel Richie, Blue Magic, Harold Melvin and Blue Notes around the house and a father who would moonlight as a deejay and managed various musical acts (such as the popular 90’s Latin group Barrio Boyzz). Jovan’s father exposed his talented son to his business early on by taking him around innovators in the business including industry legends Teddy Riley and Maurice Star. His father’s connections also afforded Jovan the opportunity to travel on the road with artists like early 90’s R&B group The Boyz (Dial My Heart, Crazy), which introduced the impressionable youngster to the entertainment lifestyle.

As a teen, Jovan played drums in his high school marching band and performed in several music groups, including a gospel rap clique, God’s Little Angels, in which he rapped, produced tracks and wrote hooks. Although the group would eventually disband, this experience would prepare him for things to come. As a solo artist Jovan experienced years of spending hard earned money at local overpriced studios and leaving with poor quality recordings. Jovan realized he needed to create his own environment to make music to meet his outstanding expectations of being a world wide star. In 2002, with a $5,000 loan from his father, Jovan moved into an empty warehouse space near downtown, purchased some wood, recording equipment and began construction on his own studio.
