  • Jah Defender

    Ricardo Mills from the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago is a singer-songwriter and performing artist who expresses the values of Jah and the Rastafarian culture in his original music. Jah defender is an amazing lyricist so you can catch him singing melodic songs or laying down insightful lyrics on top of a track.

    Mills began singing as a youth at 7 years old, but only casually amongst friends in school, and then began chanting reggae in secondary school at the age of 14. Ricardo’s mother had a huge influence on his musical taste, singing Patsy Cline, Whitney Houston, Lionel Richie and the hits of the 80's and 90's. Chanting Capleton, Sizzla, Anthony B, Luciano, Garnett Silk Norris Man and the reggae stars of the 90s, Jah Defender says, “It was part of me, I just loved the lyrics and flow of reggae, the rebel for a cause word sound enticed me.” He wrote his first song at 18 and began his musical career in 2004 under the name of Jah Fyah but later decided to change his name to Jah Defender. According to Mills, "Jah Defender" is more consistent with the profound mission he feels he is invested in. For the committed artist it is important to educate and raise awareness so that people carry on and do not forget their precious heritage.

    Jah Defender has shared the stage with many artists such as Morgan Heritage, Junior Reid and Chezidek, Maxi, Priest, Midnite and Super Cat, Jah Defender also did a duet with Chuck Fender on the title "I Love it so" in 2009,currently working on releasing another mighty collabaration with Pressure Busspipe and another with Fantan Mojah.

A duet with Buju Banton was featured on the latter's Grammy-nominated Inna Heights in 1997.

    His first album, El Shaddai (Penthouse, 1998), gathered top singles like "21st Century", "Cry People" and "Real Issues"  with message tunes like "Dry Bones", "Politics" and the uncompromising title track. It was followed by Treasure Box (Brickwall, 2000) which was produced by Bobby Digital featured songs like "Never Let A Good Thing Go", "Be Not Afraid" and "Expect A Fight". He also shared a combination album with Yami Bolo called Forces of Nature Volume Two (Brickwall, 2002).  He toured extensively and continued to record with  45's including "Onward" for Barry O'Hare's X-Rated Records,  "Let Love This Time" (Gargamel, 2000), "Ghetto Youth" (Kickin, 2001), "Poor Man's Strength" (Fireball), "Face the Challenge” (Psalms, 2002), "Give Thanks and Praises" on Cali Bud, "Only Love" for Mikey Spice's Ingredience label, "On Our Guard" (Rootdown, 2004),  "Stop I Can't" on 1st Foundation, "Uttering Lips" (Arrows, 2005), "Be Conscious" on Lion Vibes and many others on diverse labels such as Flash, Jam Style, and Royal Soldiers.

    In 2014 Jahmali returns with his first full-length album in thirteen years, We I Open on the Reggaeland label.  Here you will find an artist whose youthful promise is fulfilled, his message matured and refined: a unique an engaging artist in his prime. With a sound and style as unique in all of reggae as it was when he first came on the scene, Jahmali is poised to carry the torch of a long line of classic reggae artists from Bob Marley and Dennis Brown through his contemporary Garnett Silk while bringing his own thoughtful and engaging perspective forward in this time

  • Jerry Saxman Johnson

    Jerry was born in Bronx, New York to a Jamaican father and a Barbadian mother.   Jerry’s interest in the saxophone began at the tender age of five on his first visit to the local barber shop, which was owned by his dad’s friend and SUGAR MINNOT’S trumpet playing uncle, LESTER MINNOT. Lester and his fellow musicians left a wonderfully strong impression on young Jerry; especially the saxophonist, CHUGHIE, who also played with THE DYNAMITES & THE STEPPING STONES.  Says Jerry “Even though I wasn’t thrilled about getting my first hair cut, (they gave me a lollipop to stop me from crying), I felt excited, because I knew I wanted to play the horn and jam just like them.”
     
    Ironically, Jerry didn’t actually begin playing until junior high school. He also took private lessons and played in his first Reggae band when he was 16. Jerry’s father had a Jamaican Night Club from the ‘60’s thru the ‘80’s. Even though the club underwent a few name changes throughout those decades,  JIPI JAPA, BLUE LAGOON, and PENTHOUSE, was where Jerry saw and met many musicians and singers such as THE  BLUES BUSTERS, LESTER STERLING of THE SKATALITES, THE WILD BUNCH f/t BUNNY RUGS of THIRD WORLD, PHYLLIS DILLON, BYRON LEE, DENROY MORGAN of the BLACK EAGLES (father of MORGAN HERITAGE), and many more.
     
    Jerry has performed and recorded with endless Reggae greats, SUGAR MINNOT, JOHN HOLT, KEN BOOTH, HORACE ANDY, LEROY HEPTONES SIBBLES, SHAGGY, FRED LOCKS, KRS ONE, JUDY MOWATT, QUEEN LATIFA, SISTER CAROL, BURNING SPEAR, STEEL PULSE, SAKTALITES, BIG MOUNTAIN, BLACK EAGLES (DENROY MORGAN), RECKLESSBREED, AKA NEW BREED, ANTHEM, ROLAND ALPHONSO, JACKIE MITTO, CEDRIC (IM) BROOKS, MAXI PRIEST, U-ROY, BERES HAMMOND, MARCUS MILLER,  KY-MANI MARLEY and the late greats ALTON ELLIS AND DENNIS BROWN.

  • JoJo Mac

    JoJo Mac, beautiful and talented singer and songwriter, adds to the copious Talents, which hail from the parish of Clarendon in Jamaica West Indies. She has lived in the United States (U.S.) for most of her life, and can tackle any music genre; however, she will admit that she has never strayed from her reggae roots. In 2002, JoJo met the late Sir Clement “Coxone” Dodd, who was so impressed by her creativity and style that he recorded a song with her the very first day they met by way of introduction by Reggae veteran Ernest Wilson. She recorded 22 songs of which she wrote 20 in an eight month period. Two singles, “Good Girl Go Bad” an original, and a cover “Victim” originally done by Candi Staton, were released during the making of the impending album. Unfortunately, the album was never released due to Coxone’s passing.

    Determined to not let a setback keep her from pursuing her career in the music industry, back in the U.S., JoJo continued her pursuit by singing in nightclubs and opening for major acts in the reggae industry, capturing the attention of every audience she encounters leaving them gratified. JoJo has the tenacity to display versatility on any genre of rhythmic grooves and has a knack for being one with the beat. As a performer she is electricity personified and has a commanding way about her with an “in your face” delivery of her songs and songs from other artists. She never ceases to mesmerize her audience, small or large, garnering their full attention. JoJo Mac has shared stage with the likes of Beenie Man, Shabba Ranks, Marcia Griffiths and many more of the top Reggae Acts. She recently shared the stage with Cuba Gooden Sr. of the group Main Ingredient. She was recently the only Reggae act at the Philadelphia Latin Festival, an annual event.

    JoJo Mac is a brand and she wears many hats. She was the host of a cable television show, Reggae On The Move” in Washington DC, while at the same time writing for a Baltimore newspaper “Caribbean Connection,” giving advice to the lovelorn in a weekly column called “Issues of the Heart.” The Philadelphia resident is currently a news correspondent for several radio stations across the US and the United Kingdom. Her voice has also been used for voice-overs. Despite her many talents and experiences, she would be quick to point out that her first love is singing and performing. She is an avid songwriter who either wrote or co-wrote all of the songs for her Debut Album/CD “Superstar” released digitally in October 2011. The spin-off album titled “Superstar Reloaded” is her newest release. An official video for the track “Forget Him” was released followed by a video for the track “Girls Night Out Weekend Remix” along with a couple of hot reggae and dancehall tracks with Chaka Demus, of which one track takes the number three spot on her most recent album...I’m In Love with Chaka Demus went to Number One on the New York Foundation Reggae charts and Number 3 on The South Florida Reggae Chart. She was voted Top Female Artist of the Year for 2013 on The New York Foundation Reggae Charts as well…….JoJo Mac is definitely one to watch.

  • Junie Ranks

    Born in the urban city capital of Kingston, Jamaica-West Indies, and grew up on the rural plains of Old Harbour, St. Catharine, June Evans a.k.a. Junie Ranks, the only female dee-jay with "Ranks" behind her name, not to be mistaken for Lady Junie. Many fans often think that they are one and the same but they are not. Lady Junie has now changed her name to Junie Platinum.  

    At a young age Junie Ranks fell head over heels in love with the dee-jaying fraternity of the reggae music industry and made constant strides to becoming better and better. Junie grew up listening to artists such as, Lady Ann, Sister Nancy, Jackie Statement, Sister Verna and Mama Liza.  Junie was definitely influenced by her predecessors, but became outstanding in creating her own unique style.  Junie Ranks began the unveiling of her unique musical talent when she came to grips with her true inner passion of monotone speeches and lyrical propensities and expressions. At a young age, she would gravitate towards the melodious sounds of dee-jay music insomuch that she would recall with candor the nights when she sneaked out of her home to perform at the community center youth club, "Afreak," where she was often greeted with thunderous applauses as she propounded a host of catchy lyrics to the instrumental rhythms that were being played.

    She quickly became a local sensation while dee-jaying on ET Sound System and on Technique Disco where she initially got her first big break. Junie's then road manager, Everton March, a.k.a "Fatta March," aided her in getting her first national exposure when he applied for her to enter the annual Taste's Talent Concert where she rocked the crowds of the many thousand who attended in 1984, as she performed, the audience responded with rapturous applause in confirmation of the musical impact she created.

    Junie's goal was that she be heard both locally and internationally, and, therefore went in pursuit of a suitable producer. At that time, there were three major music producers in the reggae/dancehall arena: Winston Riley, King Tubby's and King Jammy's.  She was introduced to Winston Riley who promptly tested her lyrical capabilities by asking her to rap a couple musical lines, to which she responded immediately with a hoard of lyrics from off the top of her head. She had impressed him with an unparallel display that on the same night he took her to the studio to record her first single, Counteraction on the stag-a-lag rhythm which did well overseas.  That set up another big deal which allowed her the opportunity to record the answer to Admiral Bailey's "Ge-Me-Punaany" with        Ge-Me-De Buddy.   She also answered Super Cat's "See Boops Deh" with Cry Fe Me Boops which made it to the number five spot on the local chart.

    Junie did other tracks such as Big and Ready, Dibby Dibby Man, Naw Stop Ge Bun, Sweetest Girl a combination with Wayne Wonder, Lick Out 'Gainst De Man Dem and Sea of Love featuring John Mouse which went to number one in Canada in 1990, and give her the Female D.J. of the Year title in that country. She did tracks like Entertainer Party, Dream of Me with Jimmy London and the list goes on.

      This prolific artist, time and again has distinguished herself by her continued display of proficiency and lyrical aptitude by chanting on sound systems like:  Lee's Unlimited, Stone Love Sound, Super Rock, Metro Media, Gemini, Killamanjaro, Black Scorpio, King Atarus and Body Guard to name a few.  

    Junie Ranks has had the distinction of performing with the best in the business such as: Maxi Priest, Bunny Wailer, Chaka Demus, Ninja Man, Freddie McGregor, Lady Patra, Judy Mowaat, Shabba Ranks Super Cat, Rita Marley, Junior Reid, Yellow Man, Beenie Man and many more. She also performed on Sting, Sun Splash, Sun Fest, Champion in Action and Beach Bash among many other appearances. Junie was the first female dee-jay to call a man on stage to show them what her waistline was made of and often demonstrated that she was the Dee Jay Dance Champion. Her music has most definitely circulated the globe and has impacted fans everywhere.  While her music has taken her around the world, it has made unprecedented imprints in countries, many states in the USA, England, Barbados, Grenada, Bermuda and Antigua among other important places. Currently affiliated with DASK Entertainment, Junie is working on some new materials for her upcoming album.  Look out for her latest musical repertoire, which will be in stores in the 2011.  Junie Ranks sends salutations to all her fans, especially internationally, whom she thanks for their years of faithful support.  She looks forward to performing for them again.

  • Junior Culture

    Junior Culture was born Jermaine Vassell on August 13, 1980 in the fiery Jones Town, in Kingston, Jamaica. Music sparked an interest in him from the age of seven years old, when he performed during a festival at his junior high. The experience lit a fire in him, which continue to burn into his early teens. The decision to pursue music, especially Reggae Music, was stamped on his heart, in his psyche, and on his tongue. He was encouraged by his Aunt to write his first song called ‘A fi tek a look’ recorded at King Bully’s Recording Studio in Spanish Town.

    His first single was recorded at Omega Music called ‘Pretty Dunce’ which received air play and endorsements.
    He had the opportunity to work with several producers within the island, belting out tunes such as ‘None a dem a nuh wi fren’ with established producer Richie Flex of Nocturnal Records and Camanchie

    He won the hearts of many fans in Europe during an extensive tour during 2010 -2011. He visited countries such as Belgium, France, Germany, Spain and Sweden, spreading the message of love, faith and happiness through his music. It was during that time he met producers such as Marco Evangelista of Goldcup Records in Italy, producing and writing his upcoming album, ‘Heights of Great Men – scheduled to be released soon. He describes himself as self taught and motivated; and he is poised to take the music as far as Bob Marley did. His music is vibrant, different and highlights the culture and spirit of the Jamaican experience. His music is marketed within social medial such as Facebook, Youtube. On his return to Jamaica he wrote many songs and has three albums to his credit.

    ‘Heights of Great Men’ produced by Goldcup label in Italy, ‘Goodness and Mercy’, that includes his hot single ‘Loving you’. While the struggles are hard, he has persevered and willing to go that much farther.

  • Junior Garrison

    “Success is only the beginning” written on the wall of his bedroom serves as a reminder for Junior Garrison that is journey in music is one without limits. At an early age Junior Garrison displayed a unique interest in music, which is of course natural for the son of a musician and great recording artiste of the early ‘90s General Pecos who is popularly known for his controversial song ‘body workshop’.

    It was after leaving high school and being exposed to Fruity Loops music software Junior Garrison realized he had an innate talent to produce musical beats. His talent to write and perform music followed surely as night follows day. Born Lloyd Anderson in March 1990, Junior Garrison grew up in a volatile community downtown where music was an escape route and his means of expressing how he saw the world and how great he believed he could be. He had adopted the name garrison as his stage name to remind himself and others of where he is coming from meanwhile he proves just how far one can go.

    His unique and exceptional style in dancehall and reggae music is greatly influenced by his upbringing listening to the likes of Alton Ellis, Percy Sledge, Berris Hammond, Michael Jackson, Donnie Hathaway, only to name a few. A prodigy is most likely what he is, making strides to greater success in music with already working with some of the biggest names in the industry such as Sizzla kalonji, Jah snow cone, T.O.K., Cecile, Khago, Mr. Vegas, Anthony B, Steven Stanley and the list goes on. A true hit among his peers destined to create hits for his ever-growing number of fans. Junior Garrison is surely to be a leader at the fore front of the industry taking truly authentic Jamaican music to corners of the world where our music has never ventured before.
