ABOUT JAH BOUKS
A Story Steeped in Sound
Born Worin Gerol Shaw, in the Winchester community of St. Thomas, Jamaica, Jah Bouks started performing at 12. His stage presence and maturity were evident, even this early on in his career. He was always a crowd favorite. He performed at many community stage shows and jam sessions where he commanded the stage, often outperforming original artists on their own songs. Before too long, he was penning his own music, expressing the plight of the people of the African diaspora, railing against inequality and injustice, and pleading for worldwide unity and love.
Jah Bouks’ work is of a higher calling of consciousness and continues both on and off stage with youth empowerment, juvenile rehabilitation, and community development. Following a string of singles, Jah Bouks struck gold with his self-penned 2013 mega-hit “Call Angola.” Jah Bouks’ music has taken him into youth empowerment and community renewal. He pairs his roots reggae sound with reggae righteousness and conscious lyrics.
In 2020, after watching a world in flames, Jah Bouks decided to pour his meditation and efforts into creating an album, and the genesis of “Long Awaiting” was born. The 12-track album ranges from love songs to social criticism to the need for a spiritual connection with nature and God. The opening track “One Hit Wanda” is an apparent jab at those who considered Jah Bouks just that, a one-hit-wonder. But clearly, Jah Bouks is here to stay
