Autarchii drops 'Land of the Free'
Fiery roots reggae artiste Autarchii is determined to make a significant impact on the international reggae music scene.
The Portmore-born entertainer is currently promoting his debut album, titled Land of the Free. The 15-track album was released by Indie Roots Records through VPal Music on June 30.
Some of the standout tracks on the album are Keep Your Joy, Ghetto Life, Land Of The Free, Black Woman and Leaders Lie.
"I intend to make a positive impact on the world with my music. I want to become a household name in reggae. That's why I only record uplifting, roots reggae music," Autarchii said. "Since the album came out, I've been getting great feedback about it from music industry insiders and my supporters. I'm confident that with consistent promotion, it will do well."
Autarchii, whose given name is Jermaine Joseph, is the son of veteran reggae artiste Donovan Joseph. The former Kingston College student is a member of the New York-based neo roots movement called HOWKLEAR.
The 23-year-old singjay launched his career with a single titled Grow on the Joseph Sounds imprint in 2015. The song, which was produced by his father, did well in Japan where it was distributed by the Japanese reggae label, Dubstore.
Autarchii also released his first major project in 2015, a 10-track EP titled Generation (Y)? The HOWKLEAR Project.
Autarchii is booked to perform at the Montreal Reggae Festival in Canada on August 16.
