JMSN

Impassioned R&B vocals throbbing over futuristic grooves
And I don’t wanna sail against the wind, but I feel like your tide is pulling me in.
lyrics from The One

JMSN (pronounced Jameson) is 26 year old Christian Berishaj. A Detroit native who now makes his home in Los Angeles, CA. Writing songs from a young age he was introduced to Pro-Tools via the Digi 001 at the age of 12 and has never looked back. A multi-instrumentalist still working predominantly in Pro Tools he wrote, recorded, produced and mixed his debut album ‘†Priscilla†’ in his recording studio, The White Room.

Released independently in late January 2012 through his own White Room Records, †Priscilla† has continued to garner the attention of fellow recording artists and industry folks alike while building a passionate fan base. R&B superstar Usher recently called JMSN one of his favorite new artists in Spin Magazine as well as NME (UK). He was also a highlight of the Kendrick Lamar album ‘good kid, M.A.A.D city’ album which he contributed vocally to 4 songs; he’s featured on The Game’s ‘Jesus Piece’ album on the track “Pray” which also features J. Cole and has been featured on tracks with numerous producers including Ta-ku, Kaytranada, Sango, Kastle, D-Pat, and more racking up millions of plays on Soundcloud.

In November of 2013 his latest effort, ‘Pllajë’ EP was released to critical applause. Again written, produced and mixed in full by JMSN. The lead single “The One” has over 250,000 plays on Soundcloud with the video set to release in Late-January.

Having supported acts such as The Neighbourhood, Sir Sly, Curren$y, St. Lucia and more look for JMSN to continue touring in 2014.
