About This Event
JVKE—19 year old pop prodigy from Cranston, RI—grew up in a musical family. His mother a public school music teacher and his father a pastor, JVKE was playing piano, guitar and drums by age 3 and by age 7 he was leading his church music team performances on a weekly basis. By 14 he was producing, and by 18 he dropped out of college and signed his first pub deal, through which he has landed cuts with artists such as Jason Derulo and EXO as well as the latest single for Kpop mega group Super Junior. In June of 2020, JVKE started his TikTok page that has grown from zero to over 3-million followers in under two months (currently 6-million+), thanks to the instant virality of his self-produced audios.
“Upside Down”–a frothy, upbeat, bop with pulsing synthesizers and emo-pop melodies that sing about memories of a fresh love lost–has become a TikTok anthem. It is the most viral yet of JVKE’s TikTok songs with over 15-million videos made to it and is growing by six figures every day. The song’s meteoric success led to a Charlie Puth remix collab, which earned both JVKE and Charlie a 2021 VMA nomination. JVKE’s follow up, “Dandelion” was a joint release with global DJ superstars, Galantis, and has accumulated over 100-million streams to date. In September 2021, JVKE released “this is what falling in love feels like”; an instant smash that is climbing up Spotify’s viral charts.
