Likklelightning is a Rastafarian born in Kingston, Jamaica who moved to his grandfather’s farm in the countryside as a teenager. His music is influenced by that of Bob Marley and Peter Tosh, Beres Hammond, Freddie McGregor, Luciano and Warrior King, and has a positive message.
Likklelightning has been writing songs for many years but only recently has had the opportunity to start recording his songs commercially. His first release was “Early Morning Flash” in 2012, followed by “Mama Africa”, “Temptation”, “Magnum Tonic Wine”, “Matey Laugh” and “Cyaan Sleep”. His first full album is scheduled for release in early 2016.
Likklelightning now alternates between life in New York and Jamaica. In Jamaica he performed with King Yellowman, Professor Nuts, Luciano and Sizzla, and at many local events. He has been featured on radio and internet sites including Vibes Link, Links FM, Irie FM, Omega (UK), Island Groove, Reggae Pon D Radio, Reggae Radio, Zionhighness.com and Islandlinkz.com. Recently, Likklelightning has performed in live shows such as Reggae to Reggae and Blakkout Tour (Jamaica), Pisces Club (Atlanta USA). In the US, he has opened for Turbulence, Everton Blender, Serani, and Warrior King and has performed at several festivals and nightclub/bar venues. As his songs and videos are increasingly raising interest, he looks forward to bringing the glory of Jah Rastafari music and message.
