About Kari Jess
Kari Jess was brought up in the streets of Kingston, Jamaica surrounded by music constantly echoing from local sound systems and weekly parties. Naturally, as a youth Kari sung along to Bob Marley, Garnett Silk, Buju Banton, to Beenieman and Bounty Killa, until he emerged as an artist himself.
With a dynamic and energetic almost melodical sound, Kari combines hardcore dj’ing with a smooth singjay voice. His style is definitely catching ears quickly, having already worked with producers such as Stephen “Di Genius” McGregor, Seanizzle, DJ Chrome and a list of others. As a rising artist, Kari has accumulated a solid catalog of songs from smooth crooning “Show Love” to street anthems such as “We Nah Stray” and “Dem Try”. As 2011 rolls around Kari is hard at work in the studio honing his craft and promoting his recent mixtape “Mash It Up Vol 1”.
Expressing a musical style as unique has his name, Kari Jess’s name is bubbling on the dancehall scene in Jamaica and abroad. 2011 will definitely be a confirmation of his talent.
