Talented reggae singer Jah Izrehl is one of the fiercest young voices to have emerged in the world of reggae music in the past year. He is generating thousands of views on his latest release, 'Better Dan That', a scathing critic on police brutality, which was released on the Ashtro Music label in June 2017. 
 
"The response on youtube has been great, and mi a get a lot of favourable comments so the next step will be a video to amp up the promotion, and hopefully, get more radio play and attention," he said.

He is pleased that the streets have begun to respond to his fire-brand authenticity that resonates with the poor and downtrodden. 
 
"Right now, I want to be a voice for those who have no voice, and to inspire those who feel they have no hope," he said. 
 
Now under the astute management of Bredroc Music and Global Flex Records, Jah Izrehl has performed at stage shows such as St. Ann Kite Fest, Jungle Fyah Live and several other live shows in the Corporate Area. 
 
"The thing ah move from strength to strength," he said. 

Born Lloyd Watson on September 8, 1989 in Kingston, Jamaica, he is the first child of Lloyd Watson and Novelette Fletcher. He grew up in the sleepy district of Cromarty Grove in Spanish Town. He attended Jonathan Grant High school where he was an avid participant in the school's successful cricket programme. 
 
He showed an early love for music, and he had music in his genes as his uncle, legendary 1980s deejay Little Twitch, his father's older brother, was a big influence while growing up. When he left high school, he began to focus all his attention on music, fine-tuning his songwriting skills and perfecting his vocals. He began to grow his covenant during his last year of high school, and never visited a barber again. He began to immerse himself in cultural music, then worked with the Stir Gav sound system for almost four years. 
 
 Then a meeting in 2014 with Navino who was a member of the J.O.P at the time, helped to build his confidence as Navino recognised his talent. When Navino left the J.O.P, Izrehl even voiced a diss song, 'Dem No Bad' aimed at Aidonia and Diablo but the song lacked proper promotion
 
In 2015, Izrehl made a link with Bredroc Music head honcho Audley 'Breddi' Allen through his son. He began to travel all across Jamaica with the popular reggae artiste Sophia Squire to major shows such as Rebel Salute and Reggae Sumfest. He also set up his own independent music label, Ashtro Music. 
 
He began to work with producer-engineer Jovi Dupree, and released a raft of new singles such as 'Music ah Mad Mi', 'On My Way' and the above mentioned 'Better Dan That', which has become a favourite of youtube downloaders all over the world.
