J. Dash

Pianist

J. Dash is a piano prodigy who performed his first concert at age 5. By the time he was 8 years old, this classically trained pianist loved to play Mozart for his family and friends.

Throughout his teens, however, he cut his teeth playing in school bands, as well as various blues and jazz bands. A rapper, songwriter, producer, engineer, & multi-instrumentalist, this Renaissance man also holds a degree in Computer Science from the University of Florida.

Although having already amassed an impressive collection of material over the years, J. Dash's pulse-pounding dance sensation, "WOP" recently went double-platinum. In 2011, he founded SlapDash Productions ; a boutique firm specializing in music production/licensing for TV & film. He also created JAX Beat Battle as a way to inspire, and pour into the music community in his hometown of Jacksonville, FL. He currently resides in Austin, TX where he chairs Make Music Day, sits on the board of several startups and continues to produce music.
