Born Sean Rolle on the Island of Grand Bahama, Jah Nyne grew up in the community of Hawksbill. Jah Nyne grew up around music, first being influenced by his father, who was the lead guitarist and vocalist in a band called the Intruders, which played Blues and Soul music at night clubs and parties throughout the island. As a child Jah Nyne would sometimes sing songs while his father played the guitar.
In the late 70’s to early 80’s Reggae Music had taken the Bahamas by storm in the lights of Bob Marley and The Wailers and Reggae became a major influence among the youths. As a teenager, Jah Nyne and his friends would string up a D.J. set and one by one they would take turns singing and D.J.’ing on the weekends. At times they would also record their sessions with a camcorder as they performed.
Through the passage of time, Jah Nyne nurtured his talent and developed his art as he prepared to introduce himself as an artist to be reckoned with universally, gracing stages across the globe and satisfying listeners with his spiritually cultivated message, melodic singjay style and energetic stage presence that gives him status among the biggest names in the reggae arena. Jah Nyne has released songs such as “In the Name of Jah,” which has given him international recognition and captured the attention of listeners with its rootical Rasta vibration, as he chants rebuking devils “In the Name of Jah.” “Hungry Pickney” is another renowned single that has blazed a trail across Europe with its possession of vitality, reminding humanity not to neglect the spiritual needs of the youths. ”Rise” is truly a chant with a powerful lyrical content coupled with and energetic deliverance that encourages the youths to see their true potentials and rightful place on earth.
Jah Nyne says, “My greatest inspiration comes from His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I, who inspires me to sing music of redemption for humanity, and to lead an exemplary life.” His lyrics are also inspired by world events, everyday living, as well as, personal experiences.
