ABOUT NORRIS MAN- Norris Man is a reggae singer with deep Rastafarian beliefs. He was born Christopher Campbell and grew up in the Trenchtown and Arnett Gardens sections of Kingston, Jamaica. When he was ten, he hung around recording studios and dances where he was often solicited to get the crowd going. A singer and a DJ, Norris Man's influences run the gamut from Lionel Richie to Papa San. He speaks in a thick Jamaican accent, and is difficult to understand, but sings with amazing clarity. Norris Man started recording in his teens, but the records never drew much attention. To his dismay, stardom was harder to achieve than expected. Persevering through many trials and tribulations, including being gypped and beat down, he continued nonstop toward his goal

ABOUT KAVA JAH- Kava Jah, born Junior Johnson, in Cumberland, Clarendon Parish, Jamaica, is a reggae artist who writes, sings, and chants his own lyrics in his own style. Born into a family with musical roots, Kava Jah's father Levi Johnson was a teacher of music at the Spalding's Comprehensive High School and choir master in the church. He was a leader in the community both musically and spiritually. Kava Jah started playing music around the age of ten practicing on his father's instruments and soon found his love for the guitar.

In 2007 Kava Jah entered the Jamaica Cultural Development Commission (JCDC) Popular Song competition, where he received an award for most disciplined artist, thus creating momentum towards his first national performance in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba performing for the Military in observance of Jamaica's Independence Day and returning again to Cuba in 2008. Kava Jah began working with Gumption Music Production out of Kingston, Jamaica creating, recording, and preparing to tour. In 2012 Kava Jah joined the I-Kronik band as lead singer and songwriter touring internationally and sharing the stage with artists such as Romain Virgo, Luciano, Protoje, David Hines of Steel Pulse, Junior Reid, I-Wayne, and many more. Kava Jah has performed on stages in the United States such as Reggae on the River (CA), Sierra Nevada World Music Festival (CA), Grand Central Park (NY), BB Kings (NY), with many more notable performances across the nation and beyond, reaching as far as Costa Rica, Anguilla, and St. Marten.

Kava Jah has been manifesting his solo career, pushing the limits of his lyrical talents and musical capabilities preparing to release his debut solo album. Recently, Kava Jah released a music video for his new single 'Danger Zone.' Kava Jah is a dynamic artist both on and off the stage, spotlighting his unique acoustic performances.
