Jah Lex’s has his origins more than 4,800 Km away from the shores of Jamaica, but he has fallen head over heels in love with the pulsating beats of the island’s Reggae music.
A native of Canada, Lah Lex was born on the 7th of February 1982 in the province of Montréal. From a very young age he developed a keen interest in music, taking some of his first inspirations from Rock, Pop, Reggae and African music.
Filled with ambition and determination, he organised his first music festival called “Tribal” when he was just 16 years old. Since then he has not looked back. Now a professional musician, Jah Lex concentrates mainly on African Percussions and electric guitar.
After immersing himself fully into mastering his preferred musical instruments, the entertainer turned his attention to expressing his moods and messages as a Reggae vocalist at the age of 24. To ensure that he stayed focused on honing his craft, he decided to spend a considerable amount of his life traversing between Québec and Reggae’s chief dominion, Jamaica.
With his confidence soaring and his musical skills peaking, Jah Lex was looking for his next major project. His burning desire to grow his musical legacy led him to form his very own band in Montréal named “Raw Sugga” in 2005. Together they have performed in many concerts and festivals including the Montréal International Reggae Festival where they opened for international artists touring Canada such as the legendary George Nooks.
Jah Lex has also worked with other notable international Reggae acts including Tarrus Riley. The Canadian star has also graced the stages in Jamaica at concerts like “Reggae in the Valley” for Fanton Mojah and “Southern Gold” for Admiral Tibet. In 2006, Jah Lex organized the first edition of the annual festival called “Reggae Bash” in St-Damien, Québec.
The festival, now a mainstay on the Reggae calender in Canada, has welcomed other international artistes in the shape of Chezidek, Chuckle Berry and Michael Fabulous. Jah Lex is currently available for bookings. For enquiries:
