Rapper Jay Honest was born Jordan Jason Poirier Whelan in Ottawa, Canada, 1994 at CHEO the Childrens Hospital Of Eastern Ontario.
Jay’s surroundings weren’t exactly the easiest for a child, from his mother being ill and in bed for 5 years, his real father in and out of his life & and overachieving sister, he grew up alone.
Interested in music from his early childhood, Honest was writing lyrics by the time he was only 6 ,and eventually took on music as a full time career. At the age of 15 , Honest played his first concert at Ottawa’s 1st CapCityShowdown at City Night Club, being the only contestant to get an encore from the crowd.
His energy on stage and in his music are very versatile as he can
make music of many genres. When he was enrolled in Musitechnic, Montreal, he was put on the spot by his teacher in front of the entire class, and in 1 take, blew them away (as most underestimated the ‘’rapper’’) .
He started releasing several singles as well as his debut video in 2018 for ‘’New Year’’. Since, Honest has caught a lot of attention online, reaching his 40000 milestone on Youtube, 300000 streams on Spotify & his Instagram growing everyday. With a son of 6 years old (whom he calls his ‘’Reason’’, a daughter of 1 years old, a Sony A&R looking over his shoulder, recently signing 4 artists from Nairobi, Kenya, and his daily posts about his life on instagram spreading positivity, it’s always something new with the HONESTGANG.
