Jah bukie, is an emerging Jamaican singer, songwriter and producer. Jah bukie’s style of music is Positive roots reggae as he was truly influenced by the great legendary Wailers (Bob Marley’s band) and a diverse variety of the great reggae performers and their uplifting music of the ‘80s. Born on April 4, 1977, Jah bukie grew up in the communities of Stokes Hall, Saint Thomas and Kingston, Jamaica. With the intention to contribute nothing but good music to the people, in 2007 he started his own record label, First Born Productions, which he currently renamed as “[Urban Boyz Productions]”. In 2008, the first evocative single “Evil Out There” introduced his talent to the current Jamaican music scene, followed by two explosive tracks: “Coke and the Guns” and the socially concious “Scrap Metal”. Inspired by his respect and appreciation of the music he shares with the world stage, Jah bukie also uses the positive message of Urban Boyz to recruit other young talents. Check out his production of the romantic song “My Love” by his cousin and label mate “Tadius” (Nicholas Stewart). The determination to pursue his musical dream was forged early on Jah bukie’s life beginning in childhood and on through his early school years. By 1995 Jah bukie’s choice to move forward encouraged his ambition to find a way to succeed. It was not an easy road to travel, but in 2002, he got the opportunity to visit England which opened doors to his first studio work. In 2004 Jah bukie made his first demo at DJ Publo studio in south London. Despite continued difficult times for the Music, his aspirations to break into the industry endured and Jah bukie’s persistence sustained his spirit. Surviving bad times from the past, his journeys brought him home to Jamaica to fulfill his musical promise and the single, “Evil Out There” was released in early 2008. Today, the youthful dreams of his music have become a reality and he is working on the growth of [Urban Boyz Productions’], promotions and distribution. The hard- won proof that he will not allow anything to prevent him from succeeding flows through the positive message he brings in his songs.

He hopes his Music brings high respect from his listeners and reflects his appreciation for those who set him on the path of this Music…This music he has come to love so very much…This music shall live forever… He sings the Truth.
