DJ JAX – Jaxon is a versatile musician, DJ, & composer from Santa Cruz. With a passion for piano, trumpet, DJing (studying with DJ Monk Earl), & now drums (studying with Genoa Brown), Jaxon has diligently been pushing forward in his musical arena & surrounding himself with all things music.
Inspired by DJ Nice, Jaxon found joy in DJing during the pandemic. He became motivated to share his love of music first through Instagram Lives & then in-person as the social & community health climates allowed. Throughout his musical & personal development, Jaxon has been lovingly supported by his mother (Asha Tobing of ‘liljax creations’), his father, & musical mentors on the Tannery Campus as well as his school. With boundless creativity & an unwavering passion for music, Jaxon continues to evolve as an artist, pushing boundaries and exploring new musical territories.
