With their Reggae DNA from Jamaican origins, the Brooklyn born group of Massachusetts’s upbringing unearthed a way to infuse the sounds of Pop, Rock, Country, R&B and Hip-Hop music into their brand of Reggae that they call “Rockaz”. “Avrakedabra” is Produced by GRAMMY Award-Winning Morgan Heritage and Multi GRAMMY/EMMY Award-Winning producer Shannon Sanders, the album is permeated with notable creations from a host of multi-award winning producers and musicians such as Michael Lorello, Supa Dups, Phillip “Winta” James, Jason "J-Vibe” Farmer, Seani B & Don Chandler, Lamar “Riff Raff” Brown, Bost & Bim, Mike Austin and Michael Polk. To add to the stellar 15 track album arrangements, instruments occupy their own space provided by distinguished musicians Ethan Long - Guitarist from Kings of Leon, GRAMMY winning Guitarist Mitchum “Khan” Chin, Danny “Bassie” Dennis - Original bass player from the legendary Fire House Band and Award winning drummer Gil Sharone.
Sultry vocal fluctuations, smooth riffs, upbeat percussion, unique guitar style paired with rhythmic chants and thoughtful lyrics deliver an album that will not only make you dance and feel good, but still remains fresh to the ears.

Charming, Soulful, and Full of Life – Jemere Morgan had the best of both worlds growing up between Brooklyn, New York and Jamaica. Gaining his dynamic style androoted personality, Jemere took to rap music until one day, his Dad was shocked when he heard him singing. Before you know it, Jemere moved to Atlanta to start a singing career and initiate building Dada Son Entertainment. This next phase of Jemere’s life was the beginning of defining a dream of following in his family’s footsteps as the new outstanding reggae phenom.
Heir to the throne, the first to fill the next generation of the legendary Royal Family of Reggae Music MORGAN HERITAGE, is the son of Gramps, JEMERE MORGAN. His royal apprentice involved touring in front of thousands across the globe as an opener for his family. From Africa, Australia, South America and across the European waters, this 6 year blessing has instilled experience, hardship, humility and understanding as he transitions into his growth as a man. In addition, Jemere has toured under his father’s wing during the Gramps Morgan solo project. Jemere steps into his duties of spreading the word of love and unity for the people worldwide as he is, for reggae music at the very least – the definition of his name, a "Wish Come True."
His first released record, “First Kiss” launched Jemere’s career in 2011, and the following year “Sunshine Glow” was shot in his favorite island of Anguilla. Jemere’s growth continued as his first hit single “Neighborhood Girl”, released in 2013, proved his sweet tone belonged amongst the best of current young reggae stars landing #1 on the iHeart radio charts. From that moment, Jemere continued constant touring as his family’s opening act and gaining loyal fans worldwide where he released dynamic records and covers along the way with notable collaborations with the likes of Jo Mersa Marley, J Boog, and Stonebwoy.
Rightfully so, his most rewarding collaboration was on the single “So Amazing” of Morgan Heritage’s Strictly Roots Album in 2015. Jemere can now say he is a Grammy Award Winning Artist for his feature on the Best Reggae Album. Now, Jemere’s first album entitled Transition is set for release in January of 2017. The peak of his journey is definitely approaching…..
When asked about what carried Jemere along this path, he simply said,
“There’s a right way and there’s a wrong way….you choose one!”
