He was enthusiastic about making music despite disobeying his parents.

With much success, this character paved the way for Jarrett’s stage name to be formed. At 17, he began making music under the pseudonym BOY CHAD. He started with covers, including Billie Eilish’s song called ‘everything I wanted,’ which gained views and subscribers that enriched his persona and crafts as an artist.

The music industry gained a new genius with the arrival of BOY CHAD. The multi-tasker creates genius wherever he goes. The young and skilled musician never disappoints, whether it’s lyricism, beats, visuals, or clothing style.
