Born and raised in the Kingdom of Lesotho, Jabu Mbara settled in Austin, Texas in 2011 to study Computer Science at Huston-Tillotson University and to further his career as a solo artist.  He produced his first EP in 2013, which covers personal issues from lovelornness to finding his way in modern-day American society. Jabu has sung baritone &  bass  in two  Austin-based choirs,  Huston-Tillotson University Concert Choir and St. James Episcopal Church Choir. Jabu also participated in 'Hear There Everywhere', an international artist showcase during SXSW 2013, and the Austin World Tour, formerly known as the City of Austin September Concert. In December 2014, Jabu won the Texas Solo Artist of the Year Award which is a independent-artist competition produced by Bridging The Music, that invites the public to vote for their favorite acts. He is currently in the midst of collaborating with other Austin artists on future projects and is expected to release a series of EPs mid 2017.
