|Birth name||Jason Riley Addington|
|Also known as||JaeBoy|
|Born||July 25, 2000|
Plano, Texas, U.S.
Growing up in Blue Ridge, Texas, JaeBoy began playing guitar at the age of 5. By the time elementary school came around, he found himself switching schools to Allen, Texas. He growingly became bored with guitar and began writing jagged parts of lyrics from other artists he liked and some from himself.
In middle school, Jason found the art form of beatboxing. He watched videos of street performers and stage performers use unique and intricate sounds that engaged their audience and Jason was captivated. Jason performed in talent shows, pep rally's, and other school events with his new formed talent that gave him popular school recognition.
During this time, Jason moved yet again to McKinney, Texas and stayed there. By the time he was attending McKinney High School, Jason switched his focus on becoming a professional beatboxer and started recording his rap lyrics and producing his own instrumentals in GarageBand.
JaeBoy launched his solo recording career as "nameless" in 2018 and he self-released his music independently. By the age of 16 he had already recorded two songs called "Untitled" and "Dear Life" and streamed it on popular platforms like Spotify and iTunes. He eventually found himself on hiatus as he started studying harder in school to insure a good G.P.A for potential colleges.
In January 2019, Jason realized that the artist name "nameless" wasn't gaining any sort of recognition and was already taken by a dozen other artists. To resolve this issue, he used a nickname his friends would call him frequently; which was "JaeBoy". Jason wanted to stand out as much as possible so he changed the "Y" in Jay to an "E".
In 2019, JaeBoy self-released his debut singles called "Moonset", "Billy", and "Super Saiyan Jae" featuring Dezeire. JaeBoy got high praise for "Moonset" and has done a couple of interviews after his high school graduation. Interviewers have even been recommending their readers to "take notes" on JaeBoy's contemporary hip-hop style. As for "Super Saiyan Jae" featuring Dezeire, the single has been reaching popularity for its anime based interpretation.
In early 2020, JaeBoy has released his first studio single called "The Good, the Bad, and the Dummo" under TRND Music.
His production style follows along with Yung Gravy and 6ix.
JaeBoy cites Logic as his main inspiration. Logic's influence can be seen in several aspects of JaeBoy's persona, with JaeBoy having Logic's "Peace, Love, and Positivity" mentality. JaeBoy's group initially consisted of his closest friends, Dezerie and Monroe. His production style follows along with Yung Gravy and 6ix. JaeBoy cites Logic as instrumental to him being able to carry and articulate himself the way he does, with JaeBoy describing him as a "dedicated, motivated, & loving human being."
