Reggae artiste Nesbeth Gets featured On Mtv Iggy

Nesbeth - Fresh from his Each One Reach One Youth Tour hosted in conjunction with Conscious reggae Party School Tour recently, This Reggae firebrand has been attracting a lot of international attention with his thought-provoking music.

A recent article published by MTV IGGY, a division of Viacom Media Networks, named the Jamaican crooner among an elite minority of local acts keeping the authentic reggae genre alive.

Alluding to him, the article, titled Jamaican Acts Keeping Roots Reggae Alive in commemoration of Bob Marley's legacy, stated: "Roots reggae has seen an infusion of young talent in the last few years, but not all of its new hitmakers are overnight successes.

The My Dream singer has been working the circuit in Jamaica for years, but it wasn't until 2014 that he had his breakthrough with the grassroots hit Ole Gangalee. The uplifting Taste Victory is his latest local hit in Jamaica."


Responding to the feature, he said, "It's an overwhelming yet humbling feeling to know that MTV IGGY has chosen to highlight my work, which serves as further evidence that the music is reaching not just locally, but also on an international level. It's a good vibration that encourages us as artistes to push even harder to get the message out there to the four corners of the globe."

He is currently promoting the singles Ole Gangalee and Taste Victory amid preparations for an upcoming tour this summer.

More information about 'My Dream' singer Nesbeth

Jamaican reggae artist Nesbeth grew up in  Trench Town neighbourhood of  West Kingston on the island of Jamaica, referred to as “The Concrete Jungle” because of high crime rates and widespread economic hardship. Throughout his childhood, music was the sun in his life, and his curiosity about using it to communicate and to offer comfort to himself and others grew as he began to experiment with recording and discover his own voice.

He recorded his first single, “Reflection Of Love” in 1993 with singer Camera and since then has gathered an impressive list of accomplishments, both on his own and alongside other talented artists on stage and in the studio. His music has been released by labels such as Jack Scorpio, No Doubt Records, Down Sound Records and Shocking Vibes Production, a company that produced Nesbeth’s beloved single “So Let It Be” in 2002.

In early 2007, he was introduced to renowned music producer Flava McGregor, with whom he has recorded well received songs which offered hope to people vulnerable to a culture of violence and uncertainty, such as “Board House” and “Guns Out” just to name a few.
Each of his songs illuminates the animated, emotional layers of his resonant voice along with his ability to create striking melodies and improvise on unusual international rhythms.

His solo work, various collaborations with other talented artists and on-going philanthropy illustrate his own perseverance, express his passionate political ideologies and reflect the colourful works and narratives of the artists and groups that continue to move him, including Bob Marley, Whitney Houston, Lauryn Hill, Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, K’naan and others.

Nesbeth connects to his audiences through joyful, socially-conscious music that tells authentic tales about his life’s most inspiring moments and his communities; past, present and future. His energetic live shows brighten stages worldwide, and he turns each performance into an intimate platform on which to share his viewpoints and experiences and to spread his free-spirited optimism.

During the past two decades, Nesbeth has been a force at international festivals such as “Reggae Sumfest”, “Bob Marley Birthday Bash”, “Sting”, “Rebel Salute” in Jamaica, “Irie Jamboree” in New York, “Reggae Summerfest” in Washington D.C.”, “New Jersey Reggae Fest” and has played shows at venues in Ottawa/Canada, Antigua, Saint Kitts, Anguilla, Grenada and cities throughout the United Kingdom. In February 2010, he hosted “A nuh suh mi waan live”, a love and unity concert in the Arnett Gardens community where he and other native artists performed. The event brought together thousands of residents that had been isolated in their communities for years by violence.

After the successful release of his EP “Victory” in 2014, Nesbeth moved on in 2015 to perform at the world-famous “Rebel Salute” in Jamaica again and traveled to Europe to sweep away reggae crowds at the “Reggae Jam” in Germany and “Reggae Geel” in Belgium.MTV Iggy named Nesbeth one of “11 Jamaican reggae artists that is keeping roots reggae alive”, amongst artists like Chronixx, Protoje, Jesse Royal, Jah9, Etana and more!!!

Following his return from an almost two month stint in Europe and the United Kingdom Nesbeth released his latest effort “My Dream” in October 2015, the infectious ballad quickly catapulted him into the upper echelons of Jamaican entertainment. This new found level of stardom saw him easily becoming one of the most soft after acts on the global reggae circuit headlining various top tier events amid the song becoming his first official hit for 2016;The high point of 2016 thus far;We see two major political parties campaigned for Gordon House general elections in Jamaica using Nesbeth’s monster hit ‘My Dream’.The nation witnessed the dream of then opposition leader Andrew Holness leading his party to victory. In an address to the nation during his inauguration The Most Honorable Prime Minister’s said “My Dream is for you to live your dream” drawing reference from a song that had become an inspirational cornerstone for him during his arduous island-wide campaign leading up to his victory. After receiving a personal invitation from the Prime Minister designate, Reggae recording artiste Nesbeth had to be present to perform the song in what has gone down in the annals of Jamaican politics as an historical moment when Prime Minister Holness joined him on stage to sing and share in the momentous occasions, much to the adulation of those in attendance.

The monster hit opened a plethora of career opportunities for Nesbeth. From winning song of the year at the Jamaica Reggae Industry Association – JARIA award ceremony to receiving premium rotation on BBC 1Xtra fol.His single My Dream went number one on all majaritority of the major station including Capitol Xtra (Britain), Hot 97FM (New York) to name a few it also occupied the No.1 spot for five consecutive weeks in Jamaica ,and bullied its way to the top of the Barbados and St. Kitts & Nevis charts respectively. The Entertainment Soul’s produced composition continues to make in-rows across the international space recently landing him a honourable mention in Billboard Magazine touting him as “One of the hottest tickets in Reggae today

With this exponential growth in popularity and appeal, he is destined for greatness as he continues to live his ‘Dream’ throughout the music.
