Born in South East London to Ghanaian parents, Gospel artiste JVS has had a passion for music since a young age – and is on his journey to create music to reach fans on a global scale. He is driven by God’s love and compassion to put out outstanding pieces of music which reflect his Christian faith as a Seventh- Day Adventist. JVS hopes to spread God’s inspired Word to all generations by sharing his God-given talent.
JVS uses music as a way to cope with his emotions, whenever he’s feeling pain, sadness, or anger – music is the best way for him to release that negative energy and turn it into something positive.
His debut single “Blessing Me” reached over 16k views on YouTube, amassed over 19k streams and was listed on the UK Christian charts during September 2020.
His latest release “Glory” is an energetic Afrobeat track that pays homage to JVS’s mantra of giving all ‘Glory to God’. Working alongside producer WusoOnDaBeat, “Glory” includes a fusion of energetic instruments and percussive styles to make the song come to life. The snare rhythm used serves as a throwback to the maiden drum rhythms that ushered in the introduction of Afrobeats to mainstream music.
JVS wants “Glory” to be an inspiration to everyone, especially young people around the world who may be battling problems in secret – or have reached the point where they have lost all hope in life. He wants to encourage people to know that if they put their trust in the Lord with all their heart, and lean not on their own understanding and in all things submit to him, he will surely make their paths straight.
