John Michael Veiga (February 10, 1988, Miami, Florida), better known by his stage name JPOPD1[1] is a Cuban-American artist, songwriter, producer, actor, and author.[2] He encompasses a unique and genuine sound that is inspired by different music genres and stylistic elements.[3][4]

JPOPD1 is regarded as an expressionist and has become a rising star in the Miami music creation scene within a short period of time. He writes and produces for Latin pop stars, hip-hop artists, R&B singers, country superstars, and alternative artists.[5][6]

JPOPD1 music is available on all music streaming platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music, and YouTube. He has also been featured in several media outlets such as The American Reporter, New Music Weekly, Your Digital Wall, About Insider, and others.[7]

Early life and Education

Veiga was born on February 10, 1988, in Miami, Florida. He was raised by his mother Olga Mendez and stepfather Gino Garcia because his father went to prison before he was born. At age of 3, he could recite the works of many poets and authors. While growing up, he was influenced by the Miami bass genre of pop music and has quoted backstreet boys, Lil Wayne and Emilio Estefan as sources of inspiration for his music. Veiga graduated from Saint Michaels schools, same school the framed Cuban singer Gloria Estefan graduated from as a child. He then attended and graduated from Saint Brendan High. He then continued in the Miami Dade college and Florida International University.


Before the beginning of his professional career and taking his musical career serious, Veiga used to be in the medical field as an EMT-Paramedic in Miami for an ambulance comapny. Veiga's medical career came to end when his first altercation with the law left him with a felony on his record on his record and no record and no career path to continue on besides the music.
JPOPD1 started his music career in 2016.[8] His first professional release in the United States was the 2016 single Love in Miami' with group NIGHTLIFE. He released The Way You’re You, The whole Wildfire and Crossover-r album, just because they are all based on real-life situations that happened to him.

JPOPD1 gained recognition and popularity in 2020 with the release of his song Deep End, which is the human desire to hold onto something that is already lost.[9][10][11] It also depicts one’s yearning to satisfy their craving no matter what. His other songs, Taste Your Lips, Ozone, Hello, My Name Is, Day by Day’ are more composed, calm, and restorative.[12][13]

Last year, JPOPD1 worked on the Talking To Stars project which is a collection of songs that was released in 2020 as singles. He is also the author of Taste Your Lips, a guide book that explores music. In 2021, JPOPD1 is working on an album called Purple and Blue, it will be released after a few singles, most likely in the fall of 2021.[14][15][16][17][18][19]
