If I had to sum up the most interesting parts of my life right now, it would have to be music and school. Right now, I am a vet student at Michigan State University. When I have time for other "stuff", I like to write music, record, and perform. I recently finished my debut album "Jstokes-Golden Lady". I'm very proud of it's success so far.
I have been singing pretty much my entire life, getting my start in the church at the age of six. Growing up, I was emersed in the R&B/Hip Hop culture. I also had an appreciation for the "old school" artists, such as Chaka Khan, Aretha Franklin, Stephanie Mills, and the list goes on. I stumbled upon jazz/blues one day, and haven't been able to put it down since. I believe that these many influences have made me the artist I am today.
