Joffy Top Tiger, Writer and Musician

I grew up with Joffy Top Tiger. He might be around the same age as my younger sister, but I’ve known him for a good chunk of my life and practically his whole life. I’ve been privileged to watch him grow into his creative journey. And whenever I can, I show up to do my part to show my part. Whether recording a conversation or collaborating on countless photoshoots over the years – all because I genuinely enjoy his music. It’s an honor, indeed.


Listen to Joffy Top Tiger tell his Story


We met in our old neighborhood to record the conversation and drove around in his car. As we went, he answered my questions and played songs from his recently released album.

Joffy’s story is one of toughness and reinvention. Speaking with him was like talking to a walking embodiment of “when life throws you lemons, make lemonade.” Our conversation wasn’t just about overcoming adversity, though that was a recurring theme.

We started off the conversation talking about community. Joffy emphasized how the people in your life shape who you are and the choices you make. It’s about surrounding yourself with positive influences who will support you through thick and thin. Joffy also spoke about the legacy he wants to leave behind. It wasn’t about fame or fortune but about his impact on others. He wants his music and stories to inspire people and make a positive difference in their lives.

Joffy’s journey hasn’t been easy, but he’s learned and grown from every good and bad experience. For him, music is a form of storytelling and emotional release. It’s a way to connect with others and share his experiences. Whether writing, painting, or talking to a friend, finding an outlet for our creativity can be incredibly therapeutic and rewarding.

Joffy Top Tiger’s story is about perseverance, force, and ambition. It teaches us that no matter what life throws our way, we have the power to overcome challenges, grow from our experiences, and leave a positive impact on the world.
