Note To Self

Jah9 — Note To Self
Release date : Mar. 13, 2020
Label : VP

Deeply mystical, Jah9 has emerged from a chrysalis of poetry, dub and spirit to become a powerful femiNINE energy within a universal grassroots movement of consciousness. Inspired by the open spaces in the instrumental dub of 1970's Jamaican roots music, Jah9 sings with a voice that belies the dimensions of her physical body, from a soul much older than its current vessel; "reminiscent of that darkly operatic wailer for truth & justice, Nina Simone." Her philosophy–profoundly spiritual, and her style–Jazz on Dub. Jah9's sophomore album with VP Record's "Note To Self" elevates Jah9 to a new musical space combining her spiritual identity and sultry vocals to radio-friendly contemporary reggae rhythms.
