Raised in New Jersey by way of New York, Jax got her start by performing a wide variety of genres and in bands growing up. At the age of 18, she developed cancer above her vocal cords, which returned following a couple months of remission right as she relocated to Los Angeles in pursuit of her music. Left unable to sing herself, Jax turned to songwriting for others and found industry success behind-the-scenes.
Her new sentimental single “Like My Father” follows the release of “90s Kids,” Jax’s addictively nostalgic anthem that proved a fast fan-favorite – with 12 consecutive weeks of over 1 million streams in the US alone and complimented by a music video starring The Sandlot’s Patrick Renna. Meanwhile, her label- debut single “Ring Pop” arrived earlier this year to massive viral response and high-profile appearances on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Access Hollywood & more.
As her ability to perform returned, Jax needed to pivot yet again when the COVID-19 pandemic struck. This time she turned to TikTok, posting a hilarious response to the pop gem “Stacy’s Mom” from “Stacy’s Mom’s Perspective” which exploded with nearly 9 million views in just a few months and “Update from Avril Lavigne & Sk8er Boi 18 years later” which became her most successful parody to date with over 14.5 million views. She continued to go viral a dozen or more times over, now having amassed over 5.7 million followers on the platform and 81 million “likes.” With a massive online audience under her belt, Jax began sharing her own original music in late 2020 to an overwhelmingly positive response – ultimately leading to her singing with Atlantic Records for her forthcoming debut full-length album.
