Jun Cai is a self-made entrepreneur. At the age of 14, he moved to the United States with his parents, who worked tirelessly to instill the traditional Eastern values of academic excellence over all other endeavors. Jun, however, was cut from a different cloth. Through his exposure to Western society, where opportunities are directly proportional to demand, he quickly realized classroom achievement was not the only pathway to the best of life. And, following this intuition, Jun spent his college years exploring his love for the arts and business.
Graduating from Washington University in St. Louis, Jun walked away from the podium with a sense of two life certainties. First, he would never work for someone else to earn a living and second, he would find a way to create a life filled with the art that moves him.
Staying true to this entrepreneurial and artistic spirit, Jun set out to self-fund, self-perform, and executive-produce his own music and visual content. His hard work and ingenuity paid off when he created Jam Factory with Ashley Booker; inking a deal with Priority in 2017 they are off to the races. Jun’s first project distributed under a Major embraces the symbiotic relationship between his real experiences and his pursuit of self-expression. Through his music, Jun celebrates life’s triumphs & struggles and authentically holds true to the long-held maxim: life imitates art, art imitates life.
