We Are...Artists who were PROCLAIM HIS NAME through the arts!

Want to know 'Who We Are?" Watch & See!

How did we get started? 

TrueVoices was founded by J.L. Escobar better know as Brother Jay, in January of 2012.  In a small church in the South Bronx. By God's grace we have grown to six cities and have become a poetry & performing arts movement. We values and believe in leveraging Christ-centered Spoken Word & The Arts to create a positive impact in and to this generation.  By inspiring and equipping young people to use their creative God-given gifts. TrueVoices provides a platform that allows artists to express themselves boldly with the hope of amplifying their collective voice for the greater good and God's glory.
