Blending the sound style called “Mash Up” and combining the sounds of electro/pop/house and rock, No Genre is an artist with a storied musical background that showcases the many various styles in his artist repertoire. His musical journey began at the tender age of 3 as he tugged the guitar strings of his superstar father, the late Claydes Smith, who was one of the founding members of Kool and the Gang. Years later, No Genre would go onto work on his craft, writing raps at his aunt house up to 8 songs a day. By this time he had taken the moniker, J Mello and soon his talents caught the eye of his mentor Janes Addiction own, Dave Navarro whom he left out and began touring together in 2007. By 2011, J Mello went solo and underwent a transformation that would become No Genre, the name and moniker that speaks to his ability to blend different genres, creating a style and sound all its own.
