Born and Raised in the Philippines, Cloud Jar is an independent multi genre artist from Ontario, Canada. (Alternative, Electronic, Rock, hip hop, RnB)
His experimental approach to music bespoken his exposure to different styles, cultures and genres.
Driven by existential crisis, the desire to create, to leave a legacy and self expression,
CJ Dorado Estrella decided to pursue his artist career in 2017 as Cloud Jar. Writing his own songs,
producing, recording, mixing, mastering, filming, editing, directing music video, etc... and even marketing, he did it all on his own. Not having enough budget didn't stop him, instead he uses it as an advantage in his creative works.
From being exposed to different music genres at an early age, people with different beliefs, life experiences,
and the Internet, he developed love and curiosity for Music, Art, Entrepreneurship, Philosophy, Esoteric and Life in general.
Music and Art has been his way to cope and express the enigmatic and unpredictable nature of a being human. His style and genre
definitely speaks for itself.
