I am an indie Hip-Hop Renaissance artist. This is a blend of gospel, hip-hop, acoustic and electric guitar, and spoken-word. Depending on the event I can do 3 types of sets: hip-hop, spoken-word, or acoustic (nice for weddings).
I seek to bring a matchless, poetic, and stimulating experience to your event by performing one or all my sets. Especially for weddings, I merge poetry and guitar playing to give a refreshing sound for the non-traditional couple. Whether you are looking for an original piece like 'Love Hero' or want me to create an original piece for you; expect to be inspired.
Please review more music on all digital platforms.
Thank you for your interest,
Price Range: $250 and up
Gig Length: 10 - 90 minutes
What to Expect
The audience will experience passion, love, skill, and a hunger to show what I do best. This is the Artis World experience.
Jastin Artis began his journey in music as a fan of Hip-Hop. Although he recognizes his gift in writing since elementary school, especially with poetry, becoming an artist wasn’t on his radar. In addition, he was a band geek. Once in college, Jastin was able to spend a day at MTV in New York City where he knew entertainment was the industry for him, but from an editorial writing aspect. Soon after, Jastin had the interest to write songs. This experience intrigued him and he’s been actively committed to music ever since. Jastin is a self-taught guitarist, producer, and audio engineer.
Early in his career, he just wanted to write and produce songs; work with the artist to create their music. After a request for an album by an industry executive, Jastin went into artist mode to achieve his first album. The evolution of Jastin Artis as a solo artist has kept him grounded in faith and provided him a purpose. He’s even started a duo with female NC artist, His Image, as Artis Image.
The mission: to help elevate his listeners by providing a safe and comfortable place fans can rest their fears, scars, pain, and love it. Jastin does everything with his faith as the core; to keep God close and the leader of his life. This is the JUSTAPUPPET mentality.
Jastin Artis is the bridge to where you want to be.
New Genre: Hip- Hop Renaissance
This blend of gospel, hip-hop, alternative, and spoken- word took years to cultivate. The gospel genre lets the world know he's am a believer. Jastin makes a reference to God in everything he does and loves sharing that. But aside from God representing love He also represents being “better” and “elevation.” He uses the other elements to share my perspective and rawness of being creative and being human. His music is made to fit the setting of the fan using emotions and real-life topics many artists don’t usually talk about. He fits the change you seek not just a mood.
Sharing what he's learned and creating music are his methods to help elevate people and push them to be better. His goal of making music is to point out subjects we overlook and pretend we don’t care about but do. Music is a way of healing, learning, releasing, and becoming new. Of course, it is a personal release for him but at the end of the day, God tells him what to write about while making it unique. So many times, in positive music the solution is said but not acknowledging our feelings. Mr. Artis is here to state the pain AND give a solution. Also, he discusses real human emotions and feelings. Lastly, Artis explores the greatness of life and those things we all should appreciate. The idea is for Jastin to grow with his fans to be better men and women.
Additional Booking Notes
I will always prefer a sound check to ensure all is set up correctly. If you have a sound engineer we will work very closely together to ensure my set is together and presentable.
I like to trust those who know their job. If you don't have a person that managers your sound then I am trained enough to make the equipment you have work.
I am very on time, communicative, professional, and passionate by what I do no matter the event or audience size.
