Biography

Jonathan Reuven Rotem is of Israeli descent and was born in South Africa. He grew up in Toronto, Ontario and the San Francisco Bay Area, and now lives in Beverly Hills, California. Early on in his career he worked with the likes of Drake in Forest Hill a predominately Jewish area of Toronto.[1] Growing up, he played piano and listened to classical and rock music. He attended Berklee College of Music and majored in jazz composition.[2] In 2006, Rotem started his own record label, Beluga Heights, inking a joint deal with Epic and Koch. Sean Kingston, a young Miami-based R&B artist, was their first signing. Rotem also started a publishing company under the Beluga Heights umbrella, signing "SOS" co-writer Evan "Kidd" Bogart and United Kingdom-based artist-writer Lolene.[3] Beluga Heights then signed 18-year old R&B singer Auburn from St. Paul, Minnesota,[4] who turn out to be a minor internet sensation.

His trademark is a stylised "J J J J J.R." at the start of records he has been affiliated with.
