Jah Sun – comes from sunny California. Since his early years he’s had a lot to do with music, at the beginning it was hip-hop. When he was 20, he discovered Bob Marley’s music, which had a great impact on his approach to music as such. In 2006 he released his debut album “Height of Light”. You can find many important artists there, i.a. Luciano, Junior Reid, Lutan Fyah. This album is a great mixture of hip-hop, roots reggae and melodic ballads. His another album ”Battle The Dragon” was widely acclaimed not olny in the USA,  but also in many  European countries, i.a. Spain, Italy or Sweden. He had many fine guests on this album -  Peetah Morgan, Alborosie, Stevie Culture, Perfect, J-Boog and Gentlemen.

Lion D – his real name’s David Andrew Ferri;  born in London to an Italian mother and Nigerian father, he grew up in Pesaro in Italy, where he moved with his mother when he was a boy. After his first contact with reagge, he was full of passion to this music and quickly started writing songs and lyrics in Jamaican  patois. As the time went by, his love to the music deepened and he took part in many dancehall sessions in Italy with various sound systems and international artists at local concerts. He also introduced the unique ”conscoius” style to his own shows.  Since 2007 he’s been releasing his first singles  ("Keep The Fyah Burnin'", "Real Warrior" and "You Know That I Love You"), and in  2009 his debut album "The Burnin' Melody" in Bizzarri Records. In 2011 he released his second album "Reap What You Sow", which was a collection of his best hit singles recorded for various Europrean companies, and brand new songs recorded for Bizzarri Records. After the success of his albums, he started playing many live concerts in Europe and the USA, which were critically acclaimed by the audience. In 2013 he released the album called "Bring Back The Vibes", another confirmation of his cooperation with Bizzarri Records. It’s a roots reggae album,  including the single "Nuh Ramp" featuring ragamuffin artist Skarra Mucci, and "Try Afta You", including samples from Inner Circle’s "Sweat – A la la la la long", he had both in top ten reggae charts in Europe. In the summer of 2013  Lion D was the opening act for many reggae stars, such as  Lone Ranger, Israel Vibration and Snoop Dogg. In 2014 he spent three months in  Jamaica recording his new album with Alborosie, and when they returned, he opened all of his Italian gigs.  In th summer of 2014 he played before Alpha Blondy at Gusto Dopa al Sole in Salento. In 2015 Lion D released his latest album produced by Alborosiego called ”Heartical Soul”. Lion D’s style is a combination of many sounds having the same reagge origin – from dj style, through new roots, to modern dancehall. His songs written in the great Jamaican patois talk about important topics, such as social justice and spiritual experiences with a positive approach, typical for Jamaican roots. Fascinating tunes and rhythm make Lion D a real master capable of charming the audience with his unique voice.
