QG: When did you get the name “JLine”
JLine: About 3 years ago, I decided to adopt a stage name (a mixture of my first and last name) to usher in what felt like a musical rebirth for me. I started working with a new producer at that time, Electropoint and felt so great about the journey I was on that I decided to leave behind who I used to be and move forward as JLiNE.
QG: What was the first song you ever sang?
JLine: When I was in school, we did a production of Into the Woods and I played Jack. My first solo ever was “giants in the sky” and I was so afraid of looking at the audience, that I took out my contact lenses before the show. It worked but I almost fell off the stage a few dozen times.
