Jahson & The Natty Vibez / Bio

Jahson and the Natty Vibez are a group of musicians who come from many musical backgrounds, united by their common love and respect of reggae music. Founder ,Jahson Wildes, lead vocalist and guitarist in the band, was a guitarist and backing vocalist in several reggae groups for over 15 years. Jahson started his solo recording career in 2007 with his debut album entitled 'Rootsman Rebel'. The album consists of authentic and conscious roots reggae tracks. Songs such as: Jah See And Know, Learn, Ital Queen, and last but not least the title track 'Rootsman Rebel',with it's soaring melody and Irie feel, have gotten a good response from the Carolina reggae scene and strong support on a grassroots level!
After the release of Jahsons' follow up album, 'Here I Come Again' in April 2011, he united with some well seasoned musicians from his region,who were also apart of the album project, and they formed the Natty Vibez Band. What resulted was a serious chemistry from the start! Playing both the popular original tracks off Jashons two album releases, as well as, countless classic and modern reggae covers. Their music has been described as "traditional roots reggae with a new school attitude", which highlights the bands youthful modern roots reggae feel!
Their music is more than just party music; it's music with positive messages for MIND; with upbeat riddims for BODY! It's authentic ROOTS reggae music from an artiste who has lived the messages in the music for over 20 years now! Jahsons lyrical voice fits in naturally and effortlessly with the reggae genre. So if what you look for in reggae is bouncing drum and basslines combined with tight riddims, classic reggae horns, and conscious uplifting messages by an authentic voice, then look no further. This band can move any party, any crowd, any time! Available for booking clubs and festivals in the southeast in 2013 and beyond! -Iley Wildes, band manager.
