NHOJJ

Nhojj grew up in Guyana and Trinidad, where he performed for the Presidents of both countries. A preacher’s kid, his humility and deep spirituality can be traced back to a 7-year old singing in his father’s church in Georgetown. With an unwavering passion for staying true to his artistic callings and a spirit born out of epiphanies, Nhojj has spent more than a decade becoming what some regard as a “soul pioneer”. Since taking that step Nhojj has shared the stage with such iconic artists as Norah Jones, Regina Belle, Estelle, Taylor Dayne, Diana King and Donnie. In 2005, the 8 month “Coming home” tour took him throughout the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and the Caribbean. His 2010 Pride Tour culminated in Germany at an AIDS memorial in Munich where 500 balloons were released to the sky as Nhojj’s voice soared offering the refrain I Miss You. One of his more notable accomplishments is reaching #1 on MTV Hive chart with the same gender loving music video “Love”, and receiving congratulations and a feature on Advocate.com as a result. In late 2009, Nhojj again opened doors when he became the 1st Black male to win an OUTMusic Award, the Alliance of LGBT Recording Artists & Performers voted “Love” R&B/Soul Song of the Year. In spite of the perceived and actual homophobia in communities of African and Caribbean descent, Nhojj has been uncompromising in his message, leading to high praise by black media groups like BET’s Centric Soul Sessions who congratulated him, “…for delivering high quality Jazzy-Soul for nearly a decade… for being a Black history and a gay history first!” Tim’m was an Executive producer and vocalist on Tim’m West’s Snapshots album. Both men moved to Ohio and Nhojj currently resides in Cleveland.
