For those of you who want to know, 1luvdread also known as Irja Jones was born in Seattle, WA, before her family migrated to the south in 1999.
Moving to Atlanta in 2003, she quickly rekindled her love for poetry through books written by Maya Angelou. She says she was raised by "old heads" (older parents), so when it came to music, her family listened to a lot of Blues and R&B music.
Although she's only been taking music seriously for the past two years, she says she's been working hard to craft her skills and will continue to do so through her music.
