Jahmark has garnered a reputation as a radical Reggae rebel with an extensive repertoire of music that incites powerful feelings in its listeners.
Whether it’s a battle cry, love, or pure unadulterated joy, this Reggae Rocker was always destined to be a music practitioner from his humble beginnings.
4d40a8171a9b99aa32139027502a6f0cBorn Mark Browne-Reynolds in Jamaica, he was raised by powerhouse female figures like his mother and grandmother; and during these tentative years, Mark began harbouring an interest in spirituality which marked the beginning of his reawakening journey, and along the way discovered the voice and the name now known as Jahmark.
After migrating to the U.S. in the 80’s he took along his faith and his music, which drew a decade-long ire from his family as he fully embraced all that was Rastafari.
Now regarded “As one of Reggae’s most understated live performers”, he marks each appearance with an unexpected, yet electrified performance often coupled with a repertoire of genre-melding songs with major hit potential.

With a career now spanning close to four decades, his dauntless pursuit of creating musical greatness has become a signature part of his musical experience, one that grabs you by the heartstrings, comforts you like a friend, and caresses you like a lover.

The sound of Reggae is widely recognised because of its acoustically formed bass and drum downbeat, and its offbeat rhythm section. With such a diversity in style it is also considered complex enough to attract progressively minded musicians. A music that has a strong association with dance covering a variety of styles while also offering a background beat for those sharing Biblical chants of Zion. It is hard to ignore Reggae’s influence and how it interacts with our day-to-day lives. Shared as background music for films and advertising driving its heavy bass lines literally felt wherever rock and pop are played. Reggae has an affinity with mainstream British pop; recognised within the hip-hop culture and considered “cool” by those with no connection to Jamaica. As lovers of reggae my aim is to build a community of reggae followers that can share thoughts, news, events as listeners, artists, DJ’s and hosts.
