Biography

Producer/songwriter Christian Berishaj was born in the greater Detroit area and quickly developed a fascination with music and performance. He started recording his own music at age 12 and by the time he was 18 he'd gone through various bands and projects, including recording an album as Love Arcade on which he wrote and performed every sound. Love Arcade was eventually signed to Atlantic and released a self-titled album in 2006, on which Berishaj was the sole performer. A touring band was assembled around the project, but none of the members ever played on any recordings and the group broke up after three years. Following Love Arcade, Berishaj relocated to Los Angeles and worked briefly under the moniker Christian TV, licensing songs for various films and television shows, and signing a deal with Universal Motown Records. The label folded and Berishaj again reconfigured, taking on the name JMSN and producing more R&B-inspired music -- a decided step away from the pop leanings of previous projects. He self-released his debut Priscilla in early 2012, earning high praise from the music press and his artistic contemporaries. He followed this the next year with the Pllaje EP and a lengthy tour. JMSN spent much of 2014 prepping his next full-length, The Blue Album, which arrived in December of that year. 2016 would prove to be a prolific year for Berishaj, who first released a jazzy new JMSN album (It Is) in May, followed just a few months later by his debut album as Pearl, another alter ego, on his own White Room Records. Working quickly, he returned in the spring of 2017 with the lush synth-soul single "Where Do U Go" and its follow-up, "Drinkin'," both of which appeared on his fourth JMSN album, Whatever Makes U Happy, in April of that year. ~ Fred Thomas
