About me

Hi, my name is Jean Benoît but some people call me Jxy Breez. Music has always been a big part of my life but my upbringing has never included le quatrieme art as a career. Even though by the end of my teenage years I was starting to be involve in semi-professional music related activities – such as being part of a band, recording in studios, playing & promoting live shows, managing artists, etc … – I was still trying to fulfill my parent’s expectations of becoming an engineer. The truth is I wasn’t happy.

In 2012, at age 23, with the ambition of one day being a music executive, I’ve decided that I was done with my science studies and landed at the University of Evry to learn Music and Performing Arts administration. At that time, this was the toughest yet the best decision I had ever got to take in my young life.

I am most interested in helping create and bringing outstanding musical experiences to the listeners because I believe that one of the best feelings in the world is when you hear a tune for the first time and you know that it will stay with you all of your life.

Throughout my journey, I’ve come across a bunch of individuals with whom I share the same passion for intriguing sounds and who have constantly inspired me to bring them together to craft music that would change people’s live. This devotion to connect people has earned me the nickname “Da Plug”.

Since the beginning of 2020, while allowing myself to work on many other kinds of creative endeavors, I’ve decided to focus on being a contributor to the resurgence of  the exciting current jazz scene.
