Model. Dancer. ~ Artist. jai Moi has been honing her skills since the first moment she opened her mouth to sing her first song to the first time she held pen to write her first poem. The arts is more than a second language to jai; it has become a part of her that is inseparable. A country girl at heart, loving music was one of her very first memories.
Young jai would sing on her steps to crop fields, her dolls, and her drawings. At the age of four when asked what she wanted to be when she grew up, she first and foremost responded, "a singer." She knew her destiny from the beginning and time would prove her right. Inspired by artists like Kenneth "babyface" Edmonds and Anita Baker, love and romance were always at the forefront of her writings. The yearnings of love appealed to her and she began writing poetry and songs about love at an early age. She began merging her poetry into songs because it was unbearable for her to share her poetry: For me, poetry is too personal.
Speaking the words alone is too intimate for me. But when I sing them, I am able to express how I feel without having to say them. It’s like telling someone for the first time “I love you.” You’re nervous, sweaty palms and the whole nine… But singing them…yea…that’s how I am comfortable sharing those feelings. …whether it’s lovey-dovey feelings or the dark, painful ones. As a multi-threat artist that embraces her uniqueness, jai is learning the bass, takes music theory/history classes, directs, writes, and shoots short films.
She has several film projects in various stages of development at this time. Her CD, “Vocally Yours” is a favorite among listeners internationally. jai is currently working on a dance short-play project and will be releasing a new single and video, 'Alright,' that will be released in the very near future. According to her it's some of her best work and is very progressive. With a skill set that encompasses the arts of music, photography, film, and modeling, jai continues to perfect her craft.
The spirit of young jai lives on in jai Moi as she reaches for a bigger stage literally and figuratively.
