Ambitious, smart and knows how to treat a lady. Concepts this young and talented Jamaican, Andre Rhoden aka Jah Vinci knows all too well. Unique, powerful, riveting, are just a few ways to describe his latest release dubbed Satidra. The OCM Ceo has an amazing gift of capturing the beautiful exotic island rhythms and cultural music of Jamaica. His velvet sounds will undoubtedly withstand the wear and tear of the brutal sands of time that has ravaged so many artiste. The song is about an assertive, kind and warm hearted woman who is family oriented and driven by success. It was written by Paul Novak and recorded at Kingston Elite Studios.
Andre chose the stage name Jah Vinci because it was reflective of his divine gift of song and his creative genius that reveals itself in his lyrics. Jah Vinci was born in August Town, Kingston, Jamaica. He grew up in a musical family of six. Music was always a part of his life as both parents were singers. Jah Vinci grew up in church and it was here that his talent was discovered. He used the church as his training ground for writing songs and performing at large church events. Jah Vinci’s life was touched by tragedy when he lost a brother to a violent crime in 2005. He has used this tragedy as motivation to creating a better life for him and his family through his music.
For many years Andre struggled to launch his music career, with no success and then met Adija Palmer aka Vybz Kartel, one of Jamaica's most prolific artiste, who invested in his talent and provided the financial support he needed to launch his career. Jah Vinci's hits include: "Watch You Friends", "In My Life", "Mama Love" and "Remedy". He has also collaborated with several artists and top producers. Despite launching a successful career Jah Vinci wasn’t satisfied with the direction his career was taking. He wanted to make music that not only made his fans feel good but positively inspire, uplift and motivate them. He therefore, separated himself from the World Boss and Gaza Empire and went on to start his own brand, Out Clear Movements (OCM). He has since embarked on being an ambassador for positive change within the inner cities of Jamaica and by extension the entire world by way of his music. Vinci has also been nominated for multiple awards within the Reggae and Dancehall genres.
In March, he released a new collaboration with former Gaza member Popcaan the "Unruly boss" titled "Steamy" has been growing in popularity since its release. The single, which signalled a reunion of sorts between both entertainers, has amassed over two million views on YouTube to date returning Jah to the forefront of dancehall music. Currently, he has a brand new and vibrant management team. He also works with a number of young artists as he intends to give others the opportunity that he was given. Jah Vinci is very pleased with the direction in which his life is going and is of the view that he is really living his dream.
