jsin hits the ground running with his hard-rocking single and video You Can’t Stop Me — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

“We all have insecurities,” he shares. “We all have struggles. We all question things. But we can’t let those things drive what we do. The things that hold us back. This song speaks to the process of surrendering to what is, instead of trying to control things. Every song is me expressing that I have to let myself be, let myself exist — not just let my thought processes or my ego drive my actions.”

Beyond its self-empowering lyrics, jsin’s newest release is ground-stomping hard rock at its purest. Featuring guitar riffs and a pounding drum cadence that feels like it fell off a Guns N’ Roses album, You Can’t Stop Me calls back to the singer-songwriter’s childhood influence while addressing some very relatable and adult themes. Embodying that same energy that the Toronto multi-talent effortlessly puts together for himself, the song is accompanied by an intimate video showcasing multiple stages of inner confrontation.

Despite growing up in a house without music, jsin saw the video for Guns N’ Roses Paradise City. With the introduction of music and, more importantly, self-expression, to the young man’s life, he started a seemingly never-ending journey of self-discovery. Spending his college years learning guitar and playing covers led to the creation of his 2009 debut album Born. After the creation of a video for the debut, he unlocked a new passion: Acting.

Diving into these crafts showed jsin the power he had inside himself to change the way he looked at the world, and the way the world looked at him. It also gave him a platform to explore roles in shows such as The Strain and Designated Survivor. These roles led jsin to find a more grounded sense of self, and to pursue his main goal: Telling stories and encouraging others.

“What works for me in music, and what works for me as an actor, is largely the same thing,” he muses. “I’m just a dude who has really looked within; I’ve gone through a lot and faced my demons. Now, I’m putting that process in song form.”
