He was raised in rural Rock Springs, Jamaica, and was initially influenced by Jamaican performers such as Black Star Sound System, Jahlovemuzik, Bunny Wailer, Yellow Man and, of course, Bob Marley.

Developing his own unique sound and lyrical style over the years, Jah Jah Yute’s music projects a positive message to contemporary problems and sparks a strong sense of hope.

“My music is hitting the people,” he says. “The people are moving in a positive way. When people hear good music in person and most of all with the artist present, they stop and take notice.”

Words Power on Sound by Jah Jah Yute is a beautifully prepared piece of musical artistry loaded with full-fleshed urban Reggae sounds. A few seconds into a listen of this CD, and you'll realize that Jah Jah is an impressive, authentic reggae artist. Jah Jah is a talented lyricist, with lyrics that are positively inspiring, informative and thoughtful. If you enjoy real urban reggae with rich sonorous energy and inspiring lyrics like that of Gregory Isaac and Bob Marley, you will enjoy this CD. “ — RadioIndy
