Jah9 & The Dub Treatment + special guests on Friday 23rd November 2018
'Inspired by the fearless truth-telling of Nina Simone, and projecting the ethereal aura of early Erykah Badu,' according to billboard.com; Jah9 has become a femiNINE icon of a movement based on universal consciousness. Deeply mystical, Jah9 has emerged from a chrysalis of poetry and dub of Jamaican roots reggae. Her philosophy - profoundly spiritual, and her style - 'Jazz on Dub'.
Born Janine Cunningham, Jah9 spent her first 9 years in Falmouth, Trelawny, on the rural western edge of Jamaica before moving into the city of Kingston, where she ventured inward and found an outlet for her feelings in the words that she wrote...Jah9 became a staple on Jamaica's underground poetry scene by 2009. The empty spaces of instrumental dub allowed a young Jah9 to find her voice, and her demos caught the attention of the legendary singer Beres Hammond as well as popular producer Don Corleon; meanwhile, the passion in her live performance and her love for live music caught the attention of her peers and assisted in jump starting what is known to the world as the 'reggae revival'
Jah9 has gone on to successfully release two albums; 'New Name' (2013) & '9' (2016. Her debut album, 'New Name' produced by pioneer selector Rory 'Stone Love,' was voted album of the year by AchisReggae.com and brought forth the playful hit, 'Avocado.' In that same year, Jah9 released the single 'Steamers A Bubble' which has become an anthem for herb users worldwide. '9' album represents Jah9's shifts in energies to unveil a deeper more personal development of her 'Jazz on Dub' sound. The album was voted #2 Reggae Albu of the Year by billboard.com.
