Jah Works
Jah Works
Riddim House Productions presents their premiere group, Jah Works. Jah Works is a band of brothers based out of Baltimore, MD dedicated to writing, recording and performing original reggae music. While rooted firmly in the tradition of authentic Jamaican roots and dancehall, the band also blend elements of hip hop and popular music into their mix. A heavy dose of drum and bass combined with sweet melodies and catchy hooks are the groups’ trademarks.

Formed officially in the spring of 1993, Jah Works have been blazing up the live music scene ever since. With an average of 200 plus shows a year they have covered a lot of ground in their time together. Though best known on the East Coast, Jah Works has played throughout the US as well as internationally in Jamaica, Canada, Holland, the South Pacific, and the Middle East. The band is honored to have taken part in Armed Forces Entertainment which provides shows for troops stationed abroad. They also recently performed in Washington DC for the inauguration of President Barack Obama.

With an independent mindset and a strong work ethic, the band has written and produced 8 albums to date. Through the help of a dedicated fan base, the internet, and their relentless tour schedule, they have sold close to 100,000 records. The band is currently finishing up its ninth album and is planning a tour in support of its release.

Known for their high energy, party style atmosphere, Jah Works’ live shows appeal to both reggae and non reggae listeners alike. Comfortable in any environment, the band has played numerous music festivals, large and small venues, colleges, and private parties. They have been fortunate to share the stage with some notable international acts including Buju Banton, Toots and the Maytals, Culture, Burning Spear, UB40, and Damian Marley , as well as with their brothers in arms, John Browns Body and SOJA. When not on tour Jah Works can be found working on new material at their home studio in Baltimore.
