    in Entertainment

    John "J-Ski" Powe and his brother Shawn grew up singing together in Lansing, MI. They added John "J.C." Clay and Demetrius Peete (aka Peete) in high school and college; the quartet formed and began to write songs and rehearse. Moving to Detroit to record their contemporary R&B-based a cappella compositions, U.N.V. soon found "Something's Goin' On" 


    In 1996, J.Poww cofounded his first independent label, TRE-J Records, which was nationally distributed by Indie Distribution.  His first independent release was for a rap duo J & The Phatman who made monumental strides as the first music artists from Michigan to appear onYo! MTVRaps.  Their first single, “Keep It Comin,” was produced by chart-topping producers Soul Shock and Karlyn.


    J.Poww’s independent ventures continued and in 2001, he formed Powwer Moves Records, LLC.  The label debuted R&B duo, Poww Bros, which was made up of half the U.N.V. quartet - J.Poww and his brother, Shawn Martin.  Their first single “Faithful To” went to #5 on theBillboard singles chart.


    In 2008, J.Poww released Timeless – a best of U.N.V. compilation album; and in 2009, he released his first solo project, J.Poww The Headliner. J.Poww has kept a musical presence since then by consecutively releasing a solo album every year thereafter. His album collection includes Journey of a Man, Split Personality, and Where Is the Love which are all available for purchase online at www.jpoww.com and on all major online music stores.
