                IREA J

IrieJ is very
proud of his West Indian “roots” and has travelled extensively throughout the
islands of the Caribbean.

 IrieJ made his singing debut in 1978 along with
school friends who formed a Reggae Band called “Jah Warriors”, He played joint
lead singer with the band. The band performed all over Europe including
Denmark, Holland, Belgium, Germany & Switzerland as well as touring
England. “Jah Warriors” supported many famous acts including:-

·  Curtis Mayfield

·  Mary Wilson & The Supremes

·  Aswad

·  Yellow Man

·  Barrington Levy

·  King Sounds

·  Lee Scratch Perry

“Jah Warriors” performed at “The Anglia For Africa Concert” along with
great acts such as:-

·  Hawkwind

·  Magnum

·  Amazulu

·  Eek A Mouse

     

These are just a few of the acts that took part on that day which lead
to “Jah Warriors” taking part on the “Lets Make Africa Green” single working
with both British & Jamaican Reggae stars; including the legendary Dennis
Brown.

“Jah Warriors” formed an unusual partnership with Chris Andrews whose
hits included:- “I’m Her Yesterday Man” as well as songs written for the
famous bare foot singer Sandi Shaw.

“Jah Warriors” produced their first single “Can’t Take No More/If
Only You Knew” (Jones/Morgan) after which their partnership with Chris
Andrews brought out two singles “What’s This Feeling” (Morgan) and
“Apartheid” (Jones). The Albums/LP’s were titled: “Poor Man’s Story”
& “No Illusions” which also featured Al Anderson of Bob Marley & The
Wailers.

“Jah Warriors” disbanded in the late eighties when IrieJ was then
known as Theo Jones who recorded at a local level with a local producer, Pat
Alexander. This partnership brought forth his first singles as a solo artist
“You Are My Angle”, “Cutie”, “Kettle Wire” & “Take What You Can Get”
(Alexander).

After a quiet spell in the mid nineties Ira Jones relaunched his solo
singing career as IrieJ. He discovered his soul vocal side, listening to the
great Luther Vandross recording of “My Sensitivity” Since then IrieJ has
combined his love of Soul Reggae together whilst performing on the holiday
camp circuit and as a session vocalist for blues band “King Biskit” all over
United Kingdom over Europe.

IrieJ has also played one half of the dynamic duo “IrieJ & T Bone”
and for a short period of time “IrieJ & Toni Warne”.

IrieJ appreciates and loves all types of music from Country to
Classical but his main influences musically are Luther Vandross, Stevie
Wonder, Bob Marley and Will Downing to name a few.

IrieJ is a talented accomplished singer/writer/producer who has recorded
two solo CD’s which are a combination of his own brand of soul & reggae,
“Focus” & “Level Vibes”.

IrieJ has had the pleasure of working alongside supporting famous
artists such as

·  Alexander O’Neal

·  Gwen Dicky (Rose Royce)

·  Imagination

·  Suzie Quattro
