Meet The Board
In 2007, John moved his family to North Bergen, NJ, to provide them with the opportunities available in and around New York City. The family performed throughout the New York City area including the beautiful minton tiled arcade in the center of Central Park near the Bethesda Fountain. Here, the family further developed their musical skills as they collaborated with musicians from all over the world and performed for hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers and international tourists.
In 2012, he founded the Peace Industry Music Group. This unique boutique family music label, which promotes peace through music, entered into a historic partnership with Jay Z and his Roc Nation music label. This partnership was very special because it led to Jay Z personally signing Victory and Infinity Song. Infinity Song had been recently formed as a sibling band by five of John's children: Victory, Abraham, Angel, Israel, and Thalia (Momo).
