My name is Jonathan Ward also known as J.D Venom I am a positive music artist from Chicago Illinois. My goal is not only to have my music played but more importantly heard by my audience to bring awareness to the world that life isn’t easy and that there are ways to get pass problem instead of giving up. My music is an art and every song have a story behind it and with these story I choose to touch each one with; potent lyrical content, honest imagery, and with a gratifying connection that leaves my listeners with an intimate impression. I Start making music at the age 16 with my little brother and it began to advance from there. I also a song writer and great at making awesome hook for music artists. I don’t like to just pursue my career but also be a person with many talents and on a scale 1-10 it’s a 10. He is a one of a kind artist. You don’t believe it listen to his music you will never find an artist like him.
I just released my mixtape entitled On a Journey it is a mixtape that promote other artist including across the world for all my supporters and everyone else. This is a project of show everyone talent who is serious about their craft and on the grind and willing to work with others. I am currently working on my mixtape called Got Big Dreams which is a follow up to my new mixtape that show other they can make it anywhere long as that have a dream. I have not picked a release date for the project everything is still in the works.
I grew up listening to a lot of Bone Thug and temptation but as I research on music I started to listen to Andre 3000, Kanye West, Kid Cudi, Big Sean and J. Cole. That is really the only artists I listen to consistently I loved the way they tell stories and connected with his fans.
Most people don’t know: I am a multitasker. Film Making is my drug, my therapy. Films was always my first image in life even when a little kid.
My styles been compared to: I have had people telling me that I am similar to Chance The Rapper and Lil B in a way but other than that I have not been compared I was told that I stand out because I am a positive artist and mixing my music with other type of Genre.
My Goal in Hip- Hop Is: I want to be the voice of solution to my generation I want to show the world that by listening to my music can solve problems. I want to connect with my supporters I want to speak for the ones that don’t know what to do in certain situations.
I’m going New: I’m going New music solution to problems in realty because the game is lacking truth it’s a lot of artist are in it for the wrong reason some want money and fame but me I just want to save lives and show people that is maybe lost and don’t know what to do that they are not alone.
