Jea Street, Jr. is a singer/songwriter born and raised in Wilmington, Delaware. He has completed a recording project entitled "The Sit Down" which tours as a production of Artivism brought to life in the form of a musical experience. He recently performed the inaugural set of Firefly CHATs in 2019 on the topic of Artivism. Jea created one of the first online music festivals "by artists and for artists" at the beginning of the COVID-19 Quarantine called Ronapalooza as a way to continue creating music and engaging with fans. He also performed with the Jonathan Whitney Project in the Clifford Brown Virtual Jazz Festival in Wilmington. Jea's main inspiration is his family, his community, and the high standard of artistic achievement set by great artists before him such as Duke Ellington, Donny Hathaway, and Quincy Jones.
