Yves Jean's Love for Music

Ever since I was a child, I've always enjoyed music. It was not until my senior year in High School, that I wanted to be creative. I've always wanted to counter what was on the radio, or what was considered popular music. Unfortunately, many talented artist, don’t get to see the light of day, in regards to exposure. However, the internet has given a great path to artist like myself. It allows us to stay creative with our vision and reach potentially millions of people. 

I’ve put out five albums since 2000. I treat my releases as a time capsule to my past. The lyrics and the arrangements showed what influenced me, musically, socially and politically at the time. My current EP Stand A Little Taller, has evolved into a mature, lyrically driven, multi-genre with a pop aesthetic feel. I never planned for the EP to sound this way. It just came out naturally. By being independent, I can do what I want.
