Breakthrough Artist of The Year: Jahmiel

When A Great Man Rise… Recognize

Ever since the days when Sugar Minott strung up his Youth Promotion sound system, reggae music has been about who’s got next. This year the answer was clear, as we witnessed the emergence of a fresh voice that had been crying out for a few years now, but which suddenly became indispensible, as if it had been, and would be, around forever. A voice for the ages. Jahmiel rose to prominence on the strength of a record released in late 2015 entitled “Gain The World,” Showing no signs of losing his soul, the youth Jahmiel dropped gems like “Where Were U” and “Great Man,” investing dancehall music with wisdom beyond his years as he blended the rock-solid reasoning of roots reggae with the freshest digital rhythm tracks. Somehow he accomplished all this without sounding preachy or cliché. Citing Sizzla and Buju Banton as early inspirations, Jahmiel’s sound is utterly his own and his future is wherever he wants to take it. Sing out youth—we’re all listening. Audio After The Jump…

Jahmiel Reflects on 2016: For me 2016 was the year I had to let people know my capability. With my breakthrough hit “Gain The World,” it was important to not let that momentum fade while I had the ears of the people and the fans. It was also important for me to work on developing some songs that are not for the moment but can live on.

Looking Forward: For 2017 I look to attain more exposure and show my fans a little more versatility. Top of the year I have a single with me and one of the hottest new female artists out of Jamaica right now Shenseea single is called “Tell Me” produced by Troyton. Giving you another side of Jahmiel. I am also looking forward to growing my fanbase as I will be embarking on my first European Tour and the release of my debut album. In 2016 I performed on Reggae Geel but top of the year I am looking to do some club dates. So just expect Great things from Jahmiel—a me name Great Man lol.

“Jah see and know say, we never do them nuttin’ at all” Run that…
