Reviews & Quotes

Love Power

Jahmark’s top hit album “Love Power” is a 13-track Cd, filled with uptempo and powerful reggae. It’s best described as a high energy blend of traditional roots reggae and dancehall flash. The music has a fine authentic Jamaican feel, although it was recorded in the US. The album opens with a cover of Foreigner’s world-wide hit I Want To Know What Love Is. It’s one of my favorite tracks on the album and previously anthologized on the compilation ‘Thumpin Reggae Jamz’. All other tunes are original selfpenned tunes. Furthermore the album includes the song ‘Toy Gun’, one of their most memorable live songs. The themes heard here are mostly love related, especially the healing power of love between people of the world. Most noteworthy tunes are Ganjah Song, Soul Jammin’ and Love I’m Feeling.Teacher & Mr. T Reggae Album Review

Life!

International Reggae artist Jahmark & the Soulshakers come forward with LIFE! (Banana Boat / Roughsounds.) On this disc, Jahmark offers a cycle of love songs including “Red Ginger”, “Sweet Alicia”, and “Sheryl & Me” to augment the cultural focus that’s always been a part of his music. The disc was recorded at Roughsounds Studio in Redondo Beach, CA and co-produced with Roughsounds’ Mike Irwin utilizing the musical talents of Tony Byrd, Cedric Bravo and others. Standout tracks include “Who Tek Mi Kali” and the stirring title track “Life!”Chuck Foster The Beat Magazine

“I had the opportunity to work with Jahmark during the making of the movie Weekend At Bernie’s 2 … here’s a fresh raw talent with a powerful, revolutionary voice reminiscent of say a Richie Havens.”
Peter Wolf Songwriter/Producer & Musical Director of Weekend At Bernie's 2
“Great vocalist, warm delivery … just the spice I have been looking for in the interpretation of my songs. His vocal styling reminds me somewhat of performing artist Seal.”
Lanny Cordola Songwriter/Producer for Frontline Records
“Good stuff, outstanding songwriter and vivid storyteller. I have recorded many artists from Little Richard to Salt ‘n Pepa and this material definitely stands out among the best.”
Carl McGregor House of Sound Studio and Songwriter/Producer for Warner Bros. & Dreamworks
“A true straight from the heart artist and excellent singer who sings with authority and conviction … interesting vibrato technique sometimes putting me in mind of Seal.”
Jeff Silverman Mastering Engineer of Palette Studio
“… several of America’s best-kept reggae secrets, Jahmark & the Soulshakers and L.A.’s Sapadilla and Kindread, contribute one song each. I had the pleasure of seeing Jahmark & the Soulshakers at Oxnard’s Reggae Jam on the Coast this year and their live performance is not to be missed.”
The Beat Magazine
“With a backdrop of Mount San Jacinto, Jahmark Dan of Jahmark & The Soulshakers gives a vibrant performance in front of a dancing crowd at the Ramona Bowl during Reggae Fest ’95…”
The Hemet News
“REDEMPTION POSSE sing “True Believer.” They were lively on stage jumping up and down in their presentation. They received prize for best performer, $3000 from Sonic Sounds.”
