Here is my bio, not the greatest writer lol so anything you need to fix is cool.
Jonathan Rivera aka J.Era. born in Boston, lives in Amesbury ma. Music has always been apart of my life. Growing up my mom always wanted the best for me, at the age of 4 I was setting up pots and pans into a makeshift drum set in the kitchen. At the age of 5 I lost my dad and, not realizing it at the time, that’s when music became a big part of my life. After that I moved to a couple different places like fall river, new Bedford, cape cod, and Quincy so music was all I had. My last moved was to a town called Newburyport when i was about 10 and started to learn how to play the drums. When I was 16 I had a friend (onyx) introduce me into the game and how to make music. Growing up with just my mom, I heard old school rnb music and classics from artists that still influence me today, such as berry white, earth wind and fire, the temptations, the Jackson 5, Marvin Gaye, boys two men, 112 and more. Other artists that influence me today are dizzy wright, wiz khalifa, Fabolous, j.cole, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, big Sean and many others.
To me, music isn’t about getting paid. Its about bringing love to ones that doesn’t know how to express their feelings. There always someone out there that is in your same position, but never the same shoes.
Peace love and happiness!
