With long dreads flying and energy bursting every time he’s on stage, J Ras has been quickly gaining fans across the nation with his uplifting music and high energy live shows. Coming from the hills of Northern California, he has consistently performed for over a decade blending modern roots reggae with hip hop and dancehall. After successfully touring across the U.S. on the Vans Warped Tour in 2014, J Ras topped iTunes reggae charts with the release of his second solo album Find My Way in November 2014.
J Ras continued building a buzz both online and on stage with a headlining national tour in early 2015 and a viral video on Facebook with the Rapping Dad that received over a million views. In a recent article published in Submerge Magazine, Jonathan Carabba stated that “J Ras’ recent success comes as no surprise, as he spent the entire summer performing on Warped Tour, grinding hard and self-promoting every single day all across the country.
J Ras is living proof of the old hard work pays off saying.” After numerous festival performances this past summer, J Ras was eventually invited to perform as a guest on stage with one of his biggest inspirations, Michael Franti & Spearhead. With multiple nation wide tours under his belt and collaborations with world renowned artists like Scarub of Living Legends and Prezident Brown, J Ras is ready to take the world by storm. As a family man who often shares the stage with his kids, it is important for him to pass on a positive message through his music and live performances.
