Born and raised in Memphis, Jozzy grew up immersed in music. With her mother a part of Willie Mitchell's famed Hi Records, her mom was a solo recording artist herself, and had cuts on Hi including "Love What You're Doing to Me." Regrettably, Jozzy's older brother, an aspiring rapper, was sent to prison when she was 5, leaving a sudden void in her life. That void became a source of inspiration though, as she found many of his cassettes, including early favorites "Drain You" by Nirvana and "Man Cry" by Scarface. The siblings continued to communicate regularly during his incarceration, with Jozzy's brother, John, encouraging his sister to explore her love of different styles of music in her own original manner.
Summer of last year, Jozzy left her home town of Memphis and moved to Miami Florida to partner with TIMBALAND's PROTEGE, WIZZ DUMB and his DUMB DRUMBS productions. The experience allowed her to write for different styles and perspectives as she worked on songs for multi-platinum selling Indonesian artist Agnez Monica, as well as more established American singers like Cher and Michael Bolton. Jozzy and WIZZ'S new projects dropping next year include KANYE WEST's G.O.O.D music artist TEYANA TAYLORr, dancing with the stars MARK BALLAS, and is collabing with TIMBALAND on JENNIFER LOPEZ new project. In a year's top MISSY ELLIOTT reached out to the songwriter and admired something that Jozzy said she didn't expect for her to like. HER TONE!.
