J BOOG Biography
Native Californian J Boog has encountered many influences for his reggae/world style music from his experiences growing up in the rough Compton, CA neighborhoods. J Boog developed an interest in music at an early age when he and his older sister simultaneously began singing and playing along to melodies by reggae legend Bob Marley. This initial interest prompted the young artist to start performing in front of small audiences at age nine, a hobby that manifested into a serious career path for J Boog in 2005.
In 2007, J Boog released his debut album "Hear Me Roar" and joined the musical family Wash House Music Inc, a record label with bases in Hawaii and San Francisco. In the year that followed, J Boog began collaborating with artists who helped him define his sound as a musician. Don Corleon, producer of "Let's Do It Again," commended J Boog for his collaborations. In an interview with The Reggae Vibe Corleon explained, "The first time I heard J Boog's voice, I told Gramps Morgan (Dada Son Entertainment) he was a genius for working with him and that I wanted to voice him (J Boog) without a doubt." The results are apparent when listening to Boog's music: an authentic combination of Island Music and genuine Jamaican reggae support the natural theme of love that is present in all of J Boog's writing. When you listen, you will feel that he truly understands matters of the heart.
