How did you come by your stage name?
Jeanricard is my real name, my father named me after a french red wine from Bordeaux.
When did you discover your love for your craft and what made you realize you wanted to pursue a career in it?
When I was serving overseas in the US Army I would perform for my platoon and the battalion, I’d always get great feedback. I have been working toward it since then. It’s now been 10 years.
To what or whom do you accredit your sense of style?
My upbringing, the people I grew up around, and obviously, my mother.
On your current project, how did you come up with the concept?
Three words; Black lives matter. After the George Floyd’s case I was really out of it and I went for a drive and was really deep in my thoughts, I just wanted to get away from these states and I started humming a song, ergo “Road to Zion”
What are some of your greatest challenges, and what is your greatest attribute when it comes to your work ethic?
Greatest challenge is that it’s really hard to find my niche. My greatest attribute would be that when it comes to my craft I’m very focused, I don’t ever let down I can be very stubborn.
Are you the best at what you do in your opinion?
Yes, no doubt. My lyrics, melodies, and vocals are way better than my peers.
What are your plans for the near future?
Just keep releasing songs until one day the good Lord opens the right ears to listen to my music.
