Jacoby “J.T.” Pender was born into a family of musicians in the rurally located town
of Port Angeles, Washington. His mother, father and brothers were all aspiring
musicians throughout his life. He credits his family for providing an environment of
constant musical creativeness growing up.
Although he is skilled with a beat pad or sampler, he is also a capable musician
with the keys, guitar and bass. A typical studio session with J.T. reveals that he
can create a track from scratch with any arrangement of instruments and develop
it into a published song. As a recording engineer, songwriter and vocalist, J.T. has
shown an ability to perform well in all areas of the song creation process.
Under his urban music imprint, GameRunnaZ, J.T. has amassed a catalog of over
10 published albums with various artists from the Northwest. GameRunnaZ
Records has now officially relocated to San Diego, California where the label has
established a recording studio and is rebuilding its roster.
J.T. recently revamped GameRunnaZ Music Publishing through GameRunnaZ
Records, and has secured music placements with MTV, Bravo!, B.E.T., amongst
other TV networks. You can currently hear his original composing on the
soundtrack for the movie “Killing Cookie,” directed by Ryan Wise.
