Born in Montego Bay, Jamaica, singer Janine “Jah9″ Cunningham has firmly established herself as reggae’s strongest new female voice recently, with a string of well-received releases produced by famed selector Rory StoneLove.
Old school blues improvisation, meets hard hitting lyrical prowess, in a rich imaginative blend of vocal clarity and complexity. She sings with a voice that belies the dimensions of her physical body, from a soul much older than its current vessel. Her philosophy is profoundly spiritual, and her style is Jazz on Dub. Her style is Jazz on Dub. She is Janine ‘Jah9’ Cunningham, the third and final addition to the ministry of Reverend and Mrs. Cunningham. Her mission and music are inspired by a resolute reverence, and a determination to inspire and uplift mind and soul.
“Music, if not to give praise unto the Most High, give comfort to the spirit and share truth, would be for vanity, selfish ambition and inevitably amount to naught. So I sing for the King.” – Jah9
