Purpose[edit]

j786 has agreed to donate 100% of all his profits that he earns through his music to charity. His identity remains unknown as he does not wish to seek fame and notoriety through music. He would rather raise money for the causes he believes in to help those Americans who cannot afford proper medical treatments due to unaffordable and expensive medical insurance premiums. He has joined the Free Medical Clinics network lately sponsored by MSNBC’s Keith Olberman and others that are with him.[1][3]

Style[edit]

j786 has a unique style and blend of electronic, pop and dance music. j786 has commented on this by saying, "We're taking pop music back to its roots where it was refreshing and fun before it got diluted and became pop music of an unknown definition. I can say with confidence that we are ahead of the curve and starting a trend with the style of music we're bringing that consists of strong melodies and meaningful yet simple lyrics with a message."[2]
