JSWISS, a native of Dobbs Ferry, NY, is among a class of hip hop artists that blend top notch wordplay and substance with elite musicianship both on stage and on record, putting him alongside the likes of Kendrick Lamar and Chance The Rapper. JSWISS is also the first ever hip-hop artist ever to perform at the landmark New York Botanical Garden, has opened for the likes of Rakim, Big K.R.I.T. and EPMD, and has had music featured in films on NBA TV and Red Bull TV.
With clever wordplay, positive messages and an infectious energy that drives an exciting live show, JSWISS appeals to hip hop purists and new hip hop audiences alike. Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival producer Brooklyn Bodega calls JSWISS “a great representative of the future of the culture,” while The Source Magazine says, “The listenability of his new music, especially how he successfully draws influence from a variety of genres, is also helping to connect him to a widespread audience, with fans of R&B, hip hop, soul, pop and rock all able to find something to like in JSWISS.”
Since releasing his soul and jazz-infused EP "No Music" in 2016, JSWISS is familiar face on stages throughout New York City, regular performing with some of most accomplished musicians in the city across multiple genres. In the summer of 2017 JSWISS electrified NYC with his residency "The Lab" at Rockwood Music Hall, which allowed him to build with a rotating cast of musicians and workshop new songs, which helped crafted is new album. Now JSWISS is celebrating the release (April 5th) of that album, "Every Word Is A Dollar:, his first full-length project since 2013.
