Amos Saint Jean, a native New Yorker, is the youngest of seven siblings and began learning how to play the piano at the young age of five by his father Amos Saint Jean Sr. By the age of eight, Amos began singing and directing the choir at his elementary school where he began nurturing his love and gift for music.
In late 1997, Amos attended college at the University of Central Florida where he majored in Electrical Engineering. But after dealing with constant life-challenges, like the lost of his mother in 1999, after completing his sophomore year he decided to give school a break.
Things began to turn around for Amos when he decided to move from Central Florida in early 2000 and move to Atlanta to further his music career. For the next few years Amos began developing his love for writing, composing & producing music. He has been fortunate to be in the company of many great musicians, artists & producers from all over the world and now with almost 20 years of experience as a music professional, Amos Saint Jean has become one of the industry’s most dynamic and incomparable musician, songwriter, producer & recording artist.
In the fall of 2005, while living in Baltimore, Maryland, Amos independently released his debut album entitled, “In the Secret Place (Vol. 1) -Journey of the Soul” and during the summer of 2007, released a live DVD featuring new arrangements of music from the debut project. This debut album afforded him & his band the opportunity to travel overseas to Paris, France on a concert tour entitled “The New Season Tour.” In addition to touring in Paris, he has also traveled and performed in Belgium, Costa Rica, Italy and Spain.
After his season of overseas touring and traveling, in 2009 Amos felt an overwhelming need to share a message of hope to a hopeless world and decided to produce a sophomore album, film a music video and write a new song entitled, “Tell the World.” Reminiscent of his unique style expressed in his debut album, his new work was the perfect follow-up; a cornucopia of genres accompanied with electrifying percussion elements and multidimensional vocal arrangements.
For the past 6 years, Amos has been married to his long-time best friend, the former Rev. Vashti-Jasmine Murphy McKenzie. During the month of June 2016, along with their first child, Vashti-Gracia, they obeyed the voice of God and moved to Dallas, Texas where Amos currently serves as Music Director at The Potter’s House where their Senior Pastor is Bishop T.D. Jakes.
