Los Angeles, California-based talent Jonnyfenn is changing the industry day by day. He got his start in music as a child in his hometown of Torrington, Connecticut. Throughout his childhood he constantly had to move, going to 12 different schools. When he was in high school his father left and he has been estranged from him since he was 17. He also struggled with being homeless at 18 and working dead-end jobs to make ends meet. Through all of this struggle, Jonnyfenn had music to get him through it. He turned to writing and making music as an outlet for his emotions and this helped him feel less alone. Whenever he needed something to turn to, music was there for him.
