Jah Roots - Joy CD

Jah Roots has quickly gained a hard-earned reputation as one of America's most talented homegrown reggae bands. Lead singer Ras Josh perfectly employs his soulful, fervent vocals as an instrument for delivering thought-provoking lyrical content in which themes of love, oppression and spirituality are often explored. His voice possesses sonic features that can best be described as undeniably roots reggae, and yet also uniquely his own. The roots reggae element of the Jah Roots sound is generously supplemented by the Dancehall styling of rapper I-Ron, whose expertly crafted flow flawlessly infuses Jah Roots with an infectious, joyously frantic energy.

Joy was recorded at Lion & Fox Studios in Washington, D.C. The Lion & Fox Studios are known internationally as America's preeminent reggae recording studios. The recording of Joy proved to be Jah Roots' first exposure to creating new music in such a high caliber facility, and the benefits of this opportunity are clearly evidenced in every resulting track. Once in the studio, Jah Roots were joined by legendary reggae guitarist, "The British Hendrix" himself, Junior Marvin, who served as lead guitarist for Bob Marley & The Wailers from 1977-80. He contributed lead guitar on "Spliff & My Lady" and "Ganja Weed." His skilled efforts serve not only to decorate the two tracks on which he plays, but by virtue of his inclusion, Junior Marvin imbues the entire album with a timelessness and brilliance that any true Bob Marley fan will recognize.
