Born as Jaren Roberts, Unykue has been musically inclined since the age of five when she began playing the violin. Her passion for music and the art of promotion has led her to become a PR executive, Internet marketer, certified ProTools user and entrepreneur.
Unykue graduated from the Detroit School of Arts where she enhanced her musical abilities by majoring in Symphonic Band with a minor in Music Production. During her high school career, she received the name Unykue from a close friend because her arrays of talents were genuinely unique.

In 2006, she played at the prestigious Carnegie Hall in New York City. In 2009, she was crowned Detroit’s Queen of Beats for winning a beat battle hosted by Nick Speed of G-Unit and DJ Head, a producer for Eminem. In 2011, Unykue was the first female to enter into and win a beat battle at the legendary Bullfrog in Metro Detroit.
Unykue earned both, her Bachelor’s in Entertainment Business in 2011 and her Master’s in Public Relations in 2013 from Full Sail University.

Her vision is to help others get what they want out of life while ensuring security for her family. Her why is not only because of her children; but because she realizes that she must be willing to manifest her reality, while challenging herself to be the best person she can be on this earth; not just in the physical realm – but spiritually, mentally and financially.
