Much of today's reggae music has turned something so pure and beautiful, into a commercialized parody of itself. Jahmings Maccow is taking reggae music back to its roots by focusing on its foundation, storytelling. Stories about life, love, and the social ills of the world, backed by soulful music, seep into your eardrums and touch your heart and soul.
Jahmings rose from the quiet island of Anguilla, to the rough ghettos of South Bronx and was influenced from infancy by music coming from the Mississippi Delta and the Caribbean. He rose to become one of New York City's toughest reggae acts during the 80's, with bands like Catch-A-Fire and The Enforcers. In the early 90's, he moved to Los Angeles and has branched out to become more of a rhythm & blues, rock guitar.
As the years have past, Jahmings's songwriting has become more polished and personal. He tells stories, spins yarns, asks big questions, the type typically reserved for the inner workings of the brain. Jahmings questions his existence and the need for suffering, he then directs them at the audience and Jah Almighty simultaneously.
