Skinny Jay is an artist & producer from Northwest Georgia. He has been immersed in music his whole life- growing up around local talent and playing the drums as a youth. Growing up around this music oriented environment allowed Skinny Jay, born Kenneth J. Hood, to hone and cultivate his artistic abilities into a refined creative expression.
As time went on his talents grew to be comparable to many of his legendary influences that span multiple genres such as old school, R&B, pop, hip-hop, and rap. Creating music has always been a passion, not necessarily motivated by the glamorous facade of music industry itself and the lifestyles of its stars. Coupling his life experiences as a young adult, heading his household and being a dedicated father to his daughter, shaped his thoughts and artistic expression. These experiences resulted in a candid expression felt by a wide range of listeners both young and old.
Skinny Jay's real life experiences and natural affinity for the nightlife atmosphere allows him to illustrate tangible feel good music with relevant subject matter.
