Meet Jessica Renea Robinson

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jessica Renea Robinson.

Jessica Renea, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
Well, I am also known as Star J, I would first like to thank GOD for giving me life and for giving me the air that I breathe. It’s only because of God that I am here standing strong today. Since moving to ATLANTA in 2016, I have been battling many issues that have made me stronger, wiser. I have been in legal trouble in & out of homelessness, suffering financial instability and lack of support but through all my obstacles I became more hungry for success, I started teaching myself music production and the fundamentals of music composing & arrangement and writing scripts and movie concepts to the point that it became an obsession. Not only do I enjoy learning & creating music but for me, music also is my escape mechanism, it helps keep me level headed and mentally sane. As soon as I put on my headphones, I can think clearly and escape from the outside world. I’m a very impulsive a person being an Aries, you know that when we want something, we want it NOW. I wanted to master music in one day, I obsessed over it for my first 2.5 years of creating especially with my current situations. I was in and out of being homeless and that didn’t stop me. I made music in my car, in my storage unit and McDonald’s was like my mobile studio for a year, lol, but the feelings that I got when I put on my headphones was always like a HIGH that I couldn’t come down from. I love music, it saved me and even if I never made a dollar from it, I still will
continue to compose and create because of the feelings and visions that I get while composing and creating.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
HECK NO! Nothing for me has ever been smooth except my skin. I have been in and out of obstacles my entire life. I moved to Atlanta late 2016 from my home state of North Carolina because I was wrongfully charged with owning a Bunny Ranch type of business (you can google the details using my full name ) and in & out of legal and domestic violence relationships. I have experience being in and out of homelessness and not having stability. I’ve had a dream of having a studio for a long time now and it seems like there is always another obstacle in the way. Life for me have been up & down. For a week I could be doing great and the next week I’m back at the bottom. My life has been shattered, I’m always on the go, I sometimes feel alone because I literally have no true friends, very little support and NO ONE to call on if I were to go.

Completely crazy. Distant, unsupportive family & I always expect to be the bigger person, people always
Look at me and think I have all of the answers but through it all, I will always keep my composure and continue to Compose and write.

We’d love to hear more about your work.

I also have future non-profit ideas and goals to help end Homelessness & Starvation in Atlanta.

What were you like growing up?
I was raised as the only child, I was a very energetic and adventurous child. The bored easily, independent child. I suffered from Daddy issues; the lack of love and support but that’s apart of what also made me stronger today.
