JAH MIRIKLE – BIOGRAPHY

Whilst many people search all their life to establish who they are or what their worth is in the world, Jah Mirikle is clear about his calling. A native of the tropical island of St. Lucia, West Indies, Jah Mirikle was born to sing. His music is a personification of the cultural and mystical inspirations of his homeland; making his lyrical embodiment more intriguing.

Now based in the UK, Jah Mirikle without a doubt possesses extraordinary talent.

Also a keen producer, Mirikle has made his mark on numerous collaborations with Rappers and MCs on the UK music scene,….earning him the name ‘King Of The HOOKS’, and making him someone that the youth of today recognize and can identify with!!!…Together with some of these MCs, he has gone on to open shows for renowned artists the likes of ‘Ghost Face Killer'(WuTang Clan), ‘JOE’, ‘BennieMan’, ‘Spraga Benz’…to mention a few, toured the country performing with dates in Scotland, wales, Brighton, Reading, Oxford, Birmingham, Bournemouth, Norwich…etc ….and countless charity events, and talent showcases!!!

Though a keen reggae enthusiast, he remains St Lucian to the bone, and that raw captivating energy which is a common factor throughout the islands of the Caribbean (Carnival Vybz), also flows through this artist!

………….“in saying that, I have recently become more in tune, so to speak to my island roots…’SOCA’ roots, and have been paying more attention to Soca music, the events, the Bands, (Steel-Pan), the scene in general and the way people relate to that!”

Having hooked up with Trinidadian songstress ‘’NIKISHA’’ based in the UK…,she mentioned an interest in doing Soca Music, and Mirikle had the connection to a good producer on the scene in St Lucia, who was willing to supply the music.

………….“So with much encouragement from my peers, I have now made a few contributions to the Soca scene thus far including

1. “Roll” by Nikisha ft myself JAH Mirilke,

2. “Ladies Anthem” by Nikisha and JAH Mirikle, and the groovy number,

3. “Show Me Your Motion”, my first solo effort, followed by

4. “Wanderland”, and two more collaborations, one with Bahamian native Clinton “Roachie” Outten, entitled “Up Deh”, and the other with “The Gilloteen Entourage” entitled “Soca Fever”!
