"I grew to love it, and now I'm in the studio everyday."
Meet Jaemin Miquel, the 19-year-old emerging artist from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Although Jaemin has been grabbing a lot of people's attention in Atlanta, he's been making music well before he made the move here 5 years ago.
"I have been making music for about 8 years now and been around it my whole life." After graduating high school early, he immediately started devoting his time to growing as an artist as well as learning the technical side of music.
When asked about the origins of his artist name, Jaemin responded, “My mom said, “If you’re going to do this music thing, I want your name to be Jaemin Miquel.” So that’s just what it was.” Jaemin credits his team, which consists of his family including his cousin, brother, and very close friends, with helping him make everything come together.
His music is a reflection of his life and what’s going on but most importantly it’s his way of letting the world know he's here.
Moving forward, he has plenty of performances coming up with a major one in March. “I’m going to be at SXSW in March and that’s going to be dope.” Currently, Jaemin is working on completing his first mixtape and releasing singles like his February 1st release, Ball Ball. One piece of advice he’d like to leave with readers is, "Go hard! Never stop going hard." With a bright future ahead of him, we can't wait to see what else Jaemin has in store for us.
