JxHines brings a whole new perspective to everyone’s favorite subject—love. Through a seamless signature style uplifted by smooth R&B soul and just the right amount of hip-hop attitude, the Florida-born and Charlotte, NC-based singer, songwriter, and producer instantly captivates. Born and raised in South Florida, he grew up in a large family as one of eight kids surrounded by music. Beyond driving a truck for his day job, his dad served as a preacher at the family’s church. Before he knew it, JxHines found himself behind the drum kit, holding down the groove for Sunday service. He embraced a passion for the likes of Michael Jackson, Luther Vandross, Usher, and Marvin Gaye. He also managed to excel on the football field, playing college ball at Johnson C. Smith University in North Carolina. He worked as a club promoter and crossed paths with various celebrities. He wound up collaborating with soon-to-be multiplatinum superstar DaBaby on tracks such as “Clubbin” and “Protector.” He also lent his voice to Maino’s “Choosin” [feat. JxHines & Emerald Sarter]. Eventually, he popped off with “Fireflies.” It gathered over 1 million streams and paved the way for his 2020 debut, Love Stories. Bong Mines Entertainment proclaimed, “JxHines is a name you should remember and an exciting artist to watch out for in 2020.” Along the way, he caught the attention of GRAMMY® Award-winning legend Anthony Hamilton who promptly welcomed him to My Music Box as the label’s flagship artist. Now, he introduces himself on his 2023 debut EP and has so much more to come.
