Jon (Lase) was born July 11, 1975 in niagara falls, ny. At 8yrs. old Jon found his interest in music after watching a video on MTV feat: Run DMC & AeroSmith (Walk this way) and requested for his parents to buy RUN DMC’s album.From that day forward he got interested in other artists for example, Michael Jackson, GrandMaster Flash, Fat Boys, Big Daddy Kane, Mc Hammer, Getto Boys, Ice T, N.W.A, Slum Village, Ghetto Mafia. Rap music has been a part of his life for a very long time. As Jon got into his teens, he started getting into drums, guitar, singing & writing lyrics for songs. At the age of 19, Jon started a rock group called the Way Wood Youths. The group had their first television debut with Lou Paonessa for the Niagara Falls Firefighter Toy Fund December 7th, 1996 and blew up the spot. The group continued to do shows at places such as The Fun House 1830 Abbott Road in Cheektawaga, NY, The Showplace Theatre 1063 Grant St. in Buffalo, NY & at The Evening Star on Niagara Falls Blvd in Niagara Falls. In 1998 the group had changed a couple of members and then changed the group name which formed Sylph, a heavy metal rock band. Sylph was unstoppable, and at some points unstable. Sylph was successful and even achieved a record deal with Immortal Records, but never got to sign the contract. When Jon returned home from Santa Monica, CA, the group had a huge fallout and broke up. This was a huge disappointment for Jon so he decided to quit music all together, out of fear he would never sign or even touch another record contract again. Luckily, Jon’s love for music made him see that things happen for a reason.
