Jamaican/Canadian musician Exco Levi pays tribute to the founders of reggae music through a modern twist of poetry and sound. On a mission to deliver his message to the world, Exco has performed European tours, California’s Reggae on the River, Sierra Nevada World Music Festival, Spain’s Rototom, Jamaica’s Sting and Rebel Salute, Point Sebago Reggae Festival, Canada’s major reggae festivals (including Jambana™ One World Festival) and feature performances in Zimbabwe and Malawi. This multiple award winning artist’s songs are just as potent on his lips as they are on record and many colourful collaborations including Busy Signal, Chronixx, Kabaka Pyramid and producer Donovan Germain attest to that.
With music at his core, Exco Levi is one of Reggae’s most attractive voices delivering uplifting messages wrapped in engaging melodic compositions. Born in Manchester, Jamaica, Exco migrated to Canada and pursued music as a career. Following in the footsteps of his father, an artist and sound system selector, Exco realized his gift for writing significant lyrics, and weaving those lyrics with song. Also an adept piano player, Exco has crafted some of the most thought-provoking singles in Reggae since 2009. He has written almost 200 songs and in 2015, Levi released his debut album Country Man two weeks after receiving his 4th consecutive JUNO. In September 2016 Levi ‘re-fixed’ his first Canadian recording, aptly titled OH Canada. The song, a tribute to his ‘home away from home’, was CBC Radio’s Song of the week during Canada’s sesquicentennial celebrations. CTV News called it "Canada’s new anthem."
Now, Exco Levi returns with his second full-length album, Narrative, which tells more of the story of Canada's greatest reggae artist.
