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.

The original inspiration for the name Jah Works came from a song title by the legendary 70's reggae group The Gladiators. There is a broad yet simple meaning in those two words. To say aloud is to recognize the higher power behind all things seen and unseen. As Jamaican artist Terror Fabulous sings in his song of the same name, "Jah Works when you see the sun shine, Jah Works rule over all." Jah Works is the energy that brought the band together and the force that drives them today.

Bonded not only by blood but through music as a way of life, JUTAUN makes natural what others neglect to try. Joined by talented collaborators and friends, they combine rock, reggae, folk, latin, jazz, funk, soul, and gospel influences to create an original sound that effortlessly glides between sounds such as Maroon 5, Gary Clark Jr., and Third World.

JUTAUN has worked with Leon Huff of Philly International, toured across the world, and inspired an ever-expanding fan base. Rising above their peers at every opportunity, JUTAUN delivers poetry where others settle for common lyrics; bold musicianship in a world of digital revision; and a vast array of musical styles amidst pressure to find a market niche. And this is still the beginning.
