Protoje along with his long time band and collaborators, The Indiggnation, are at the forefront of what is being described as the 'Reggae Revival' currently happening in Jamaica. Celebrated for his fresh & unique approach to the reggae sound he is very much at the forefront of a new wave of Jamaican artists set to take the world by storm.
Considering Protoje’s heritage his place in the revival is unsurprising, his father was a calypso king from St. Vincent known as Lord Have Mercy and his mother the successful reggae singer, Lorna Bennett.
Having released his third album ‘Ancient Future’ on Mr Bongo Records last year, Protoje has received much acclaim worldwide. The album has been sat at the top of the reggae charts since its release, and the singles ‘Who Knows’ featuring Chronixx, ‘Love Gone Cold’ featuring Sevana, and ‘Answer to your name’ are also consistently at the top of the charts (pop and reggae). Protoje was the first reggae artist to be play-listed by Radio 1 since Sean Paul 10 years before. In 2016, Protoje appeared on Later With Jools Holland, a Maida Vale Live Session for Annie Mac, and the Live Lounge for Trevor Nelson.
