The world welcomes a new sound and vibe as artist and singer JTTI, born John Troia, delivers hard-hitting music that dominates airwaves and digital streaming platforms. At only fifteen years old, he has shown extreme talent and potential, providing that age and skill are unrelated as he continues to grow his influence and clout amongst music lovers worldwide.
Born on December 19, 2005, JTTI is a New York-based singer, musician, songwriter, and influencer who has been making a massive name for himself in music. He was originally from the Bronx over in New York City but later moved from place to place around the New York area. He grew up in a single-parent home, as his father left when he was still young, teaching the artist the importance of independence and responsibility at an early age. From then on, JTTI has had to be the man of the home and takes care of his family by doing his part to put a roof over their head.
All through life’s challenges, JTTI would turn to music as a form of escape. He started performing and writing original music. When people started noticing his gift for singing, he started dreaming about becoming a professional musician. What sets his sound apart is the amount of power packed in his vocals which can also be strangely soothing at the same time. JTTI’s fan base has grown more and more as music lovers from everywhere are starting to notice what the young but gifted musician has to offer.
For the most part, JTTI has remained underrated, as his age often hinders decision-makers in the industry. But what some see as a downside, JTTI has learned to turn into an edge as he continues to trump musicians within his age range and even older. The singer hopes to one day reach the levels of his musical influences. Some of his idols include artists like Jay-Z, J Cole, and T.I., who serve as role models for the artist.
JTTI is of Puerto Rican and Sicilian descent and hopes to bring pride to his nationality. Some of JTTI’s best-known songs include tracks like “Perspective,” “Elevate,” “My Vibe,” and “LMA,” among many others. His latest hit single, “Rewind,” currently packs the most punch and has already hit over 400,000 streams since its release. But JTTI maintains that he has so much more to offer music-wise. He’s currently working on more releases and writing his songs, seeking to refine, grow, and discover more with time.
Moreover, JTTI has a world of opportunity still left before him. He’s extremely young and aspires for great things—a combination that most often leads to greatness even in an industry as competitive as music.
JTTI hopes that his life, work, and music would encourage those who feel they are too young to start to go ahead and start trying.
“I hope they will understand that you can do anything that you put your mind to,” explained JTTI. “Don’t let anyone stop you or tell you that you can’t!”
