Introducing Jawan Mathis

Singing since the age of 2 or 3 in the choir at St. Anthony's Catholic Church in Savannah, GA,  Jawan Mathis has pure, raw vocal talent.  And according to his viewers' YouTube comments, the ladies don't think he's bad on the eyes either.

Jawan notes his mother, Angela Mathis and his grandfather, Moses as his biggest fans.  They have inspired him to sing what he feels and to sing from the heart.  His grandfather was the lead vocalist of The Gospel Crusaders.  Though he never saw his grandfather perform, Jawan would listen to his taped recordings and try to imitate what he heard.  In addition, his Aunt Frankie Mae Wright was a talented artist as a background singer for the group Parliament.  Singing is definitely interwoven through several generations.

J.A.M.'s talent mirrors that of Maxwell and Trey Songz but definitely with his own eclectic spin and flavor.  Mathis listens to old school crooners such as Sam Cook, Smokie Robinson, and Donny Hathaway.  Noting that he is of a younger generation than his predecessors,  Jawan adds musical genres of jazz, soul, r&b, hip-hop, gospel, and rock&roll into his vocal stylings.

As a keyboard musician, and learning to master the guitar, Jawan has been seen across the local and national stage.  He's been on local television programs throughout Savannah and Atlanta, as well as "It's Showtime, At The Apollo" in Harlem, NY and the Ricky Smiley Show.  With singing and entertaining in his blood, Jawan Mathis is ready to go to the next level.  How does he get in front of the right people to make it happen?

I am also an admiring fan.

I know jawan mathis and he is an awesome singer im his biggest fan too . i went to my first show in 2016 at ritzy and saw them Perform they were JDW music group at the time but as time passed one of the members left. But they kept the music going as JD music Group i been to local shows out of town shows and they bring raw talent , fire where ever they go. They even had a birthday party setup for me were he sing to me . it brought me to tearsπŸ’œπŸ’™πŸ’›πŸ’š. But even till this day i still love there music . i told jawan that he should make the attempt to go to apollo and i come with him but he wanted others to come but noone would go . i told him he doesnt need noone else , you have a voice that needs to be heard .But honestly i dont think the industry is looking for another jodeci or trey songz .They want to turn these beautiful talented ppl into pop candy puppets thinking thats what we want .I just hope he will be able to find himself in this world , Find the music and dont let his voice go away with the wind. I will alway be the biggest fan of JD music group im a big fan of Jawans and i just want to see him succeed.
Yours truley
