Biography

Ju-Taun ( Pronounced zha –tawn)

Pronounced zha –tawn, our group consists of Jake and James Evans, Peter Garcia, and Samoeun Cheng. Inspired by the black velveteen voice of Marvin Gaye and the Motown sound of Stevie Wonder, and Michael Jackson, we began performing in local venues and on our high school stage while still teenagers. We officially became a group in the spring of 1999 at a talent show in Philadelphia where we won second place. We have definitely seen our share of obstacles trying to break into an industry that is weary of anything that is “against the grain”. After sending our music to every record company address we could get a hold of and performing at every talent show that crossed our path, we realized that we had to do something drastic to be heard and recognized. In 2003 with the guidance of friend and new found manager David Still, we collectively agreed to save up and fund our first cd release. We formed Climax Entertainment and quit our day jobs to pursue our endeavor full time. We would meet in parking lots and diners and plan our attack.
The real challenge came our first day of selling our cd. We we’re so anxious to start promoting that we didn’t even have our cd’s yet. We decided we would approach complete strangers, take their information (and money!) and tell them we would mail the cd to them. We didn’t fully believe it would work until Jake sold the first one. We sold sixty that day and we we’re on top of the world.
