Hi I'm James (Jay.j.Fresh)

Singer / songwriter, certified music producer, with over 6 years of experience. Born in Canada and raised in Vanuatu.

About Me

Singer / songwriter, Music Producer Jay.j.Fresh (James Hampshire) was born in Canada. Graduated and Certified in Music Production, with over 6 years of industry experience in production, mixing and mastering in multiple genres of music including Pop, Hip Hop and Reggae music. At the age of three, my parents uprooted my family and we moved to the island nation of Vanuatu in the South Pacific where they taught at one of the schools. Here I was raised in humble circumstances in a one bedroom shack with my five siblings in. My younger days were spent climbing trees, swimming in the ocean, and playing with the local kids. Surrounded by a vast and rich culture of music and arts, a great love of rhythm and sound was instilled in me. I was strongly influenced by the traditional string band music of the area, as well as his parents' limited collection of popular music. Coming back to Canada was a huge culture shock, yet it allowed for many more opportunities to expand my musical horizons. I became very drawn to Hip hop and its culture, spending my high school lunch hours perfecting my B-boy skills. It wasn't until a return visit to my childhood paradise of Vanuatu that he became truly inspired and motivated to pursue my love of music as a career in 2005. " Music is the Language of the Universe, I use it to live, love and converse." ~ Jay.j.Fresh

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the LDS church and have always felt a connection to our heavenly father. My testimony continued to grow and strengthen as I grew up and continues to this day. The mission I served when 19 helped a lot to grow and solidify my beliefs and relationship with God. I believe we each have a mission to fulfil in this life and that we are instruments in God's hand to bless not only our own lives and family's, but also those whom we come in contact with. Everyday on this earth is a blessing and a gift and no matter what this life brings, we are never alone. The trials that come are here to turn us into the diamonds that we were born to be. God is our Heavenly father and we are his children. We can return to live in his presense oneday. I know that Joseph Smith was the prophet to restore Christ's original church in 1930 and that we are blessed to have the gospel and authority of God once again for the last time in these last days before the return of our broth and Lord Jesus Christ. If you want to know the truth of this church and the book of mormon, read it, listen and pray. The holy spirit of God (The holy ghost) will let you know the truth of all things Moroni 10:3-5 (Scripture in the Book of Mormon). I know these things to be truth and I testify this in the name of our savior Jesus Christ amen.

How I live my faith

I served a 2 year mission in the Colorado Springs, Colorado Mission. And have enjoyed many callings and duties so far in church like leadership and teaching roles, as well as scouting.
