Ty Brasel is one of the Pre-Jam artists on the Winter Jam tour this year. He was born in Memphis, TN, where he grew up at the intersection of East Memphis & Olive Branch, MS. This area, referred to by locals as “Memphissippi,” is where Ty first recognized his passion for music. As a kid, Ty found his role models within hip-hop and the music became the backdrop to his story. “As I️ got older and started attending rap shows and learning about the history of hip-hop, I️ fell in love with the art and the culture,” Ty shares. Ty’s teenage years coincided with the global explosion of southern rap. “I️ was surrounded by rappers, singers, & producers who were seeing local & national success, which inspired me to take the chance of pursuing music as a career.” Although Ty felt a calling to music, he was initially more focused on sports and a desire to become a professional athlete. That dream slowly started to fade after he was introduced to drugs. MORE about Ty HERE.
Manic Drive is also part of the Pre-Jam party for Winter Jam. Canadian pop/rock band Manic Drive was first formed back in 2004 by brothers Michael Cavallo and Shawn Cavallo. The Cavallos- who began singing at the early ages of eight and nine- always knew music was in their future. “We loved music so much when we were little kids that we started writing, performing and even recording at the age of eight and nine,” says Shawn Cavallo. “While my brother and I were growing up, our relationship with God and our music kind of grew together. So, we’ve always used music to communicate God’s love to people.” For more about Manic Drive, click HERE.
