Explain who you are for those who don’t know

Boleyjack. An artist who tells stories of love, pain & triumph.( Best I could come up with) lol

How did you come up with your name?

It’s my last name.. Started to use it as my stage name when my grandfather passed a couple years back.. Used to go by Davey.

Where are you from?

Louisville, KY.

Whats it like growing up where your from? 

There’s a lot of Love in the city. Also a lot of hate.. you hanging with the wrong people or get caught wrong place wrong time, bad news.. gotta watch how you move forsure.

How did you get into music?

My dad put me on stage with a mic at age 5 so I think I was predisposed.. Growing up watching my big bros rapping I started writing my own songs @ age 10, got serious about my work in highschool I’d say when I got grounded all I could do was write music.. learned to channel my energy from my life Into my craft.

What makes you different than other artists?

I think it’s from all I’ve Been through.. the more things you go through in life the more experiences you get-the more you’re able to speak on and relate to others that may have been through the same thing.. a lot of people tell me I make “Real music”.. so I think that’s what makes it different, it’s real.

What are you currently working on? 

I’ve been working with some of the best producers in Louisville to bring together a homemade classic album for the city. Few visuals in the works too.

Anything you would like to say? 

Don’t ever let somebody tell you what you can’t do. Ive came a long way..people that know me know I’ve been broke & down bad. They know I was homeless in college, they know I worked any odd job available to pay for school/studio. They know I didn’t have a scholarship or anybody helping me pay for school @ UK.. but they know I still graduated. Since I’ve started to find my way, I can look back now and say all the trials and tribulations were worth it cause I wouldn’t be where I’m at without them. I’m not where I want to be..yet, but to be able to look back and see where I’ve come from.. I feel blessed.
