Jaya The Cat / Bio

Boston and currently based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, Jaya the Cat play an uncompromising and original mix of reggae, punk rock and ska music. Founded through a mutual love of 60's and 70's dub and punk by three friends (Geoff Lagadec - vocals/guitar, Dave Smith - guitar/vocals and Ben Murphy - bass), Jaya The Cat create songs ranging from booze fueled anthems to chilled out dance tracks to outright political commentary. Following the 2001 release of their debut album ‘Basement Style' (Gold Circle Records), Jaya The Cat were joined by ex-Shadows Fall drummer David ‘The Germ' Germain and began a steady touring schedule of stages across the United States and Europe, playing major clubs and festivals such as Lowlands in Holland, Pukkelpop in Belgium, and the Warped Tour in the US. Their music has also been featured in numerous skate, surf and snowboard videos.
