Hello fans, critics, and wannabes. My name is John, aka JP Dollarsign. I sang my first note while being born in Memphis, TN - it was a perfect middle C. I have since expanded my vocal range to include other notes, too. While growing up on a farm in West Tennessee, I found my calling - a cow bell that told us supper was ready. I also realized I was destined to steal the hearts of girls everywhere through singing and dancing like Usher. In my teenage years, I literally melted the heart of a young girl. Since that time I've learned how to control my powers and let off the throttle a bit. When Lucky introduced me to JEWAM I knew it was fate. You see, I don't just wear white while making top of the chart hits with JEWAM, I work at The Cheesecake Factory where wearing white is the standard. Why do we wear all white all the time? Because we're sexy, girl. P.S. - I'm related to Elvis. Let that simmer.
FAVORITE MEMORIES OF LUCKY:
1) One of my favorite memories of Lucky was during my audition for JEWAM. Lucky and I performed "That's What She Said" unplugged and killed it on the first try. This is where the road to fame and success began.
2) While recording our album in Ohio, we all had to give our best performances. I was in the booth and the other band members and our producer were coaching me but I couldn't seem to emote the feeling that was needed for the song. Then Lucky said to me..."Put some stank on it!" I knew immediately what I had to do.
FAVORITE MEMORIES OF DALLAS:
1) When I met Dallas, my mind flashed back to a dream I had years ago. It was a white rabbit singing bass next to a cabbage patch. I saw that rabbit in him, and I knew that his spirit journey had brought us together to make hit records, Girl.
2) During the recording of our album, Dallas and I shared large quantities of snacks. For him, the low notes flowed naturally with the help of several dozen bags of Cheetos. One time I swapped out soee Cheetos for veggie chips under his nose, and after nailing his line he reached into the bag and blamed the producer, yelling, "Terry, these aren't my Cheetos!"
FAVORITE MEMORIES OF DOC:
1) One thing you should know about Doc is that he can't dress himself. His relatives have to buy his clothes (even the white ones) and it takes a village to prep him for a JEWAM photo shoot. I bonded with Doc on our first photo shoot as I helped him put on his suspenders like a big boy.
2) Doc got off to a rough start in the studio because he couldn't hear himself sing over the music in his headphones. On the fifth day of recording, he finally figured out an old studio trick of pulling a headphone off of one ear. After four days of bad takes, he earned the name, 'Two-Tone S**t Show' and we love him for it.
