Fusing the sounds of hip-hop, reggae and world music with conscious and uplifting lyrics, he hopes to awaken the human spirit and inspire others to live to their ultimate potential.
Jah Sun brings his message of love and unity with a variety of vocal styles.

Regardless of style, the common theme throughout all his music is the consistent message of positivity, love and respect, and kindness to all.
Jah Sun has gained great recognition in the reggae industry and other mainstream markets. In 2006, he was nominated for “Hip-Hop Single of the Year” at the ‘LA Music Awards’. In that same year, his single entitled ‘Fyah Dance’ was featured on the fall season premiere of MTV’s hit show, “Laguna Beach”. This momentum continued the following year when FUEL TV’s Vans Downtown Showdown featured singles “The Height of Light” and ‘Nuff a Dem’.
