After experiencing the business side of the industry first hand as an artist, Jett pivoted his focus towards spearheading a first-of-its-kind label platform, PennyFly Entertainment, to place more freedom and profit back into the hands of artists themselves. With PennyFly’s success burgeoning, Jett is redefining his passion for music and remains eager to bring his own ‘retro-electro’ piano rock sound to the world stage. As a tech and crypto/NFT enthusiast Jett additionally maintains a degree in Cyber Security from Penn State. Once dubbed “Elton John meets John Lennon” by Music Connection, Jett seeks to combine the style, musicianship, and influence of the original masters with his own unique flair. Expanding on his origins as a self-taught musician and songwriter, Jett has spent countless hours refining his sound through working with the likes of PJ Bianco, Gary Miller, and Scott Hull among others.
