JMWest LIVE! was created by Jean-Michel Soupraya in 2010. When he relocated to Beverly Hills from France, he was surprised to discover the Los Angeles music scene was mostly "pay to play"; he vowed to one day create an environment where artist could perform based on talent and industry professionals could come to discover quality new talent that was screened and vouched for.
