With popular mixtapes, hit singles and now his debut album, Jesse Royal is establishing himself as one of the next reggae superstars to emerge from Jamaica. Jesse's reputation has been steadily building over the past half-decade. His versatile singjay style recalls some of the giants of reggae history, but Jesse's diverse musical taste and restless artistic spirit have set him on a unique path that is helping propel the genre into new territory. Focusing on what has worked in recent years in the reggae scene—from the heavy touring, DIY-aesthetics of the U.S. reggae movement to the Sound System and bass culture influences of the U.K. scene—he's ready to apply all his experiences along the way to his own journey. Jesse Royal's time is now.

Jesse's official debut album, Lily Of Da Valley, dropped in 2017, in partnership with the New York-based tastemaker label Easy Star Records. His newest single, "LionOrder," taps Protoje, fresh off his Grammy nomination for Best Reggae Album, to deliver positive and constructive messages of watching the company we keep, identifying the strength of unity in our communities, and the power to transform oneself and thus the world around us. 

Mister Kali has spent his career defying simple explanation and shedding labels. His music is born of and lives in contradictions. Collaborating with well-known acts such as General Smiley, Ken Serious, Khari Kill, Mystic Vision, Dre Z and Sgt Remo, as well as founding reggae/hip hop supergroup Boomroots Collective, Mister Kali has made a name for himself with soulful, thoughtful and piercing lyrics, laid on a foundation of modern reggae and dancehall. Born in Santa Fe, NM, he has become one of New Mexico's most respected reggae songwriters and producers, immersing himself in a music founded far from his high desert roots. At once inclusive, respectful, harsh and truthful, his music reflects the complications of modern life and will pull you into the depths of his devotion to creativity.
