The end result delivering songs ranging from the club banger and lead single, "ChiTown
Lovin'", produced by French producer, Van So sick. The bedroom knocker', "Guilty", a definite woman please-er. Passion for music’s evocative qualities has lead this talented artist to pursue his dreams in spite of his challenge, being visually impaired. Jovan was born in Chicago, Illinois on Tuesday, November 26, 1983. At the tender age of six his proud mother, Ms. Gloria Benson and excited Grandparents, Willie and Otha Lacy knew that he was destined for greatness. Evidence of his vocal abilities were apparent when he began singing in the local church. Around that same time Jovan also became fascinated with the piano. It had become clear to most that his talent for singing and playing the piano was something special. Growing up with his grandparents, he was influenced by many of the music industry's greats, like, Stevie wonder, Prince, Donnie Hathaway, The Temptations, and many more. He would unknowingly hone his craft by pretending to be one of these artists. One day his grandmother walked in on him while pretending to be Stevie Wonder.
When he finished she looked at him and said, “I know who Stevie wonder is but who is Jovan?” From that day forward Jovan had aspirations of becoming a professional singer.
At the age of 14 he learned about music engineering and began recording himself. In his quest to find Jovan, he has perfected the art of writing, arranging songs as well as producing original music for himself as well as other artist and exhibits this through his debut album, 'Not Made For These Times'.
