Jontavious Willis

Jontavious Willis grew up singing gospel with his grandfather at their Baptist church in Greenville, Georgia. In 2014 he decided he wanted to be a blues musician and began mastering as many blues instruments he could, including the guitar, harmonica, banjo and the cigar box. In 2018, he was an opening act for blues musician, Taj Mahal. Currently Willis is finishing his undergraduate studies in sociology at Columbus State University, and on weekends he plays at small house venues.
