    Jeremiah Jermaine Paul was born July 26, 1978 in Harriman, New York, and was raised in Spring Valley, New York. At twelve years old, he began to acquire a reputation for singing while playing the drums at local churches and talent shows with his family. Jermaine joined numerous adult choirs.
    At the age of 12, Jermaine and his brother Charles moved to Alabama with his grandfather. There, he was introduced to the guitar. He played his step-grandmother's old Gibson guitar at the local church. He began listening to R&B music and imitating the voices of Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Jackie Wilson and Otis Redding. With some knowledge of the guitar, and the yearning to go back to New York, he wrote his first song.
    At age 14, he moved upstate to Harriman, New York (Hudson Valley). There he attended Monroe Woodbury high school and was introduced to pop, rock and jazz. While taking piano lessons he was selected to join the all-state, all-county chorus, and the classically-trained high school voice ensemble.

    At 15, Paul joined a quartet group named 1Accord signing to basketball star Shaquille O'Neal's label, Twism Records. He began writing and producing songs of his own. Paul auditioned for the first season of American Idol but did not receive any callbacks from the producers. He began recording backing vocals for artists such as Alicia Keys, Mary J. Blige, Joss Stone, Blackstreet and Jaguar Wright.
    In 2012, he auditioned for the second season of The Voice on Blake Shelton's team, becoming the winner of the season.
