Born one of few artists originally from Atlanta, GA, Jevon Sims aka "Vawn" credits a humble upbringing with his ability to appeal to a wide audience. As the fourth of five brothers raised by a single mother, Vawn is no stranger to struggle! Survival required "creativity" in every sense of the word. Making deals and pleasing others led him to acquire friends and acquaintances of various backgrounds.
Music has always been a dominant force in Vawn's life, but the future Hip-Hop Superstar admits to being an R&B fan first. Tagged "a natural-born entertainer," Vawn performed in a few talent shows and talent showcases. However, it wasn't until shortly after graduation that this former high school athlete aggressively decided that music was definitely in his future. While penning his own rhymes and devising his strategy for success, Vawn had the benefit of working with A-list artists like Jermaine Dupri, Jagged Edge, Xscape, B2K, Ginuwine, Avant, Mya and many others.
Vawn's drive and showmanship while performing at a local nightclub in Atlanta, GA impressed "super producer," Jazze Pha, enough to commit to doing a record with the upcoming star. The collaboration with Jazze Phizzle resulted in the self-descriptive smash "HollyHood". This up-tempo feel-good track fuses a hint of R&B with riveting hip hop drive and introduces Vawn as the artist that embodies the best of both worlds now officially declared as "Holly and Hood", spinning off his self-proclaimed pseudo-name, "Mr. HollyHood".
Vawn brings dimension and range to his performances. He has currently starred in over five films working alongside the likes of Isaiah Washington, Ludacris, AJ Johnson, Miguel Nunez, and Ice T. In addition to his acting, Vawn is a businessman, recently launching SmoakWood /RockHard Entertainment where he serves as co-owner and COO alongside his trusted business partners, Eugene Smoak and Jeff Wood. Vawn is prepared to show and prove his predictions on his own star power, as he so confidently states, "I'll never do what's the norm! Just give me an opportunity and I'll SHOW the rest!"
