Jonathan Davis was bornon 18 January 1971 in Bakersfield, California, American, is Musician, Songwriter, Singer, Producer, Actor. Jonathan Howsmon Davis, popularly known as ‘JD’ or ‘JDevil’, is an American musician and lead vocalist for the nu metal band ‘Korn’. His music is popular for being dark, addressing issues of abuse and emotional trauma, which is inspired by the terrible and abusive childhood that Davis had. He went through emotional, physical, mental and sexual atrocities when he was growing up—his parents got divorced when he was young, his stepmother tortured him, his family friend used to sexually abuse him and his high school peers outrageously bullied him for wearing different clothes, listening to different music so much so that they used to physically beat him. All of these scaring experiences he included in his music - making music a way to vent out his suppressed emotions. He was into DJing since he was in school, which only got developed into a passionate love for making music and he combined together a band called ‘Korn’ through which he became commercially popular. He is famous for his alternate image, his affliction with the dark side of life and his ability to express pain through music.
