Party On Neptune
is an example product, a little taste if you will, of the kind of music Jay B does. Hip Hop is all about the story of a struggle and this EP sets the tone of what you can expect to hear about in his music. from relationships with girls, to his Crazy world changing, trend setting ideas, to the struggle of a hip hop artist trying to make it against all odds, it is evident that this music is more real than the majority of whats playing now.
Paul Joseph-Boudreau Grettenberger is 26 year old Singer/songwriter from Lansing MI. Before He was adopted at age 9, He was raise in Detroit, MI by his step-mom and dad.
While dad was an alcoholic, Step-mom suffered from a sheer hatred for Paul and his siblings because they weren't her kids. For 9 years they suffered from dehydration, malnutrition, child-abuse and neglect.
After being adopted at age 9 by 2 white lesbians from Lansing, MI, things were a lot different.
Paulie G as they called him was a natural people person, but no matter how many friends he had, he couldn't help feeling empty inside. Late at night Paul would dream of experiencing his mother’s love for the first and only time. Since that time, Paul had wanted nothing more since she left him but to see her face and this seemed like part of some sick joke- that God gave him 2 moms instead of his own. Fearing he’d ultimately hurt those around him he suppressed these thoughts.
Early on Paul proved to have a strong work ethic but didn't really take well to the classroom setting. He found it hard to make sense of anything when the people closest to him caused him the worse pain. Paul found his life on the stage. Through the composition of music and movement, and production of art, Paul was able to create an outlet for his suppressed anger and rage and sorrow, the same emotions that lead most to suicide, or bullying, or simply alienation.
At age 19, Paul found out that his birth-mother was murdered and stuffed down a sewer drain, the same year he was put in foster home. Devastated, Paul decided to dedicate his music career to the life of his birth-mom Linda Saffold,
"so that even in death, she would be remembered as I her son remember her.”
Taking the name she gave him, Joseph, Jay-B Saffold was born.
16 years after her death it is through the sheer grace of God that I am still standing and can share my story with others. I live to be an example, that anything is possible through Christ and Hard work. It is my dream to change lives. I find my sacred space on stage."
