Jesse Bland aka Jay Hunna is a music artist from the south side of Chicago, IL. 

Jay grew up listening to a diverse span of music genres and gets his inspiration from Hip-Hop legends such as Jay Z, Tupac, Notorious BIG and countless others. Jay does not define his music as any one genre of music, but it is commonly heard as hip hop fused over R&B and Jazz tracks. 

The inspiration for his debut album "Better Days" comes from the tragic death of his cousin Sandra Bland which sparked nationwide attention in July 2015. Sandra Bland closes out the album on the track entitled "Land Of The Free".

Jay's unique approach to music allows him to create story telling songs that leave listeners with a feeling of joy. Jay skillfully articulates that because one comes from humble beginnings, doesn't mean you must stay there. 

“Good music translates in all languages. It creates a feeling of happiness and joy in most people, so I just want to reach every language and give them that experience” -Jay Hunna
