Giveon's love for writing started when he was young. He would write short stories before switching to poems when he grew up.

His sound is mainly influenced by mid-20th-century jazz.

Giveon's age

The singer was born on February 21, 1995 (28 years old), in Long Beach, California, United States. He was raised by a single mother who ensured the neighbourhood's gang culture did not influence him and his two brothers.

Giveon featured his mother in his solo debut album, Give or Take

The upcoming star often credits his mother for influencing his music career. He told Apple Music that the whole concept of his first album, Give or Take, was him conversing with her.

The first voice on the song, Let Me Go, is his mom telling him how proud she is of him. The entire album resembles a journal, and the songs are experiences he tells her in search of advice.

Justin opened up about the break in an Instagram Live, revealing she caught him texting other girls. She also addressed their split in her 2022 single, What a Lie, with lyrics like "Couldn't believe I got that night / Saw the messages in plain sight / How you never thought to delete / Like you wanted me to read and now."

Giveon embraced his baritone voice after hearing Frank Sinatra

The artist's mother made him sing at birthday parties when he was young after discovering he could stay in key. He, however, did not have confidence in his voice until after high school when he did a music education program at the Grammy Museum and learnt about Frank Sinatra.

I gained a lot of confidence in my voice once I discovered Frank Sinatra because I didn't know baritone singers were a thing. Where I'm from no one plays that kind of music so I just thought I sounded weird. Now I'm really grateful for my tone because I stand out.
