Writing his first song at the adolescent age of 10 years old, Jason “J-Stringzz” Spence has been creating music for more than a decade now. Picking up the acoustic early on proved that he was not only an esteemed lyricist and steadily improving vocalist, but also a solid guitarist. He is more than just your average artist. He is well rounded musically, and with the three combined, has brought a whole new genre of music to the industry.

IAA:  What is your music background?

J- STRINGZZ:  I have been writing songs since I was 10 years old.  I also have been playing the acoustic guitar for a little over 8 years. I’ve been doing music my whole life.  I know I was born to do this!

IAA:  What inspired you to do music?

J-STRINGZZ:  God is my inspiration.

IAA:  What are your songs about?

J-STRINGZZ:  My songs are about love, breaking up, life’s struggles, and survival. I write music that most people can relate to because they have shared the same experiences.

IAA:  Do you write your own music?

J-STRINGZZ:  Yes, I do write my own music. I also produce and play instruments. I play the guitar, which is my first love along with the keys, drums, and the bass

IAA:  Who are your musical influences?

J-STRINGZZ:  Tupac is first on my list, alongside John Mayer, Bob Marley, Muddy Waters, B.B. King, Notorius B.I.G., Nas, and  Stevie Ray Vaughn, I try to listen to a variety of different artists.  I’m not really influenced by any of the new artists. I am strongly influenced by some of the late greats.

IAA:  How would you describe your music to people?

J-STRINGZZ:  My music is very uplifting and inspirational. It is feel good music.

IAA:  What makes you stand out from other artist?

J-STRINGZZ:  I am not afraid to be myself.  So many artists are trying to fit into the norm, not knowing, there isn’t a norm.  We are all made to be different, so you should never try to be like anybody else. Be yourself, cause nobody can do you, like you can do yourself.  I also stand out because I play the acoustic and will spit 16 over all guitar.

IAA:  What are some upcoming projects you are currently working on?

J-STRINGZZ:  I am currently finishing up my 2nd mixtape,  “Musically Inclined Vol. 2” The follow up to the local smash hit, “Musically Inclined Vol. 1” Which is currently available on Itunes) Vol. 2 is set to be released Summer 2012. After that I will be working on my acoustic project, “ No Stringzz Attached” which is set to be released Fall 2012. I have a lot in the works for this upcoming year

IAA:  What are your career goals, where do you see yourself in the next 10 years?

J-STRINGZZ:  10 years from now, I see myself as an established songwriter in the music industry.  I want to have platinum plaques under my belt for writing for my own projects and writing for others.

IAA:  How can your fans access your music and contact you?

J-STRINGZZ:  You can reach me, buy my music, or listen at the following places.
