General I / Bio

General I, born in Caracas, Venezuela on April 20th, 1985 as Jesus Enrique Martinez. Better known as the front man and rhythm guitarist for SW Florida's premier Gospel Roots Reggae band, Jahgape. He has recently branched out into conscious dancehall reggae, and lovers rock delivering his smooth vocals over some of the Reggae Worlds most loved riddims. While still fully involved with Jahgape, and its counterparts you will find yourself listening to the voices of Andrew Stamps, from Chaefin and Lovefull Hieghts, and Ras Chul from Jahgape, and many others on his debut album "Calm in the storm". The title of this album comes from the trials and tribulations he has faced as a voice of reason among his community as he converted from Rastafarian to Christian at age 21 and the opposition that continues to rise against what is considered as Gospel Reggae, and how placing his faith in God and Jesus Christ has been the "Calm in the Storm" against all that has happen and will continue to happen. Catch him with Jahgape performing some of these tunes live! Stay tuned in for more explosive music! Straight Consciousness!
