Jemere Morgan

Grandson of reggae legend Denroy Morgan and son of Morgan Heritage member Gramps Morgan, singer Jemere Morgan brings a mix of R&B, hip-hop, and pop influences into his own style of reggae music. His 2013 breakthrough hit "Neighborhood Girl" helped build an international audience for subsequent efforts like 2017's Transition and 2019's Self Confidence. Jemere has also collaborated with a number of high-profile artists including Wyclef Jean on the 2021 single "My Kingdom." 

Born in Atlanta but raised on tour with his father's group, Jemere still found time for high school, where he introduced his talents to the world, performing a version of Mario's hit "Let Me Love You" at the high-school talent show. His first professional showcase came as the opening act on his father's 2011 solo tour, and he capitalized on his heightened visibility with the 2012 mixtape High School Drama hosted by G-Unit and Shadyville associate DJ Outkast. Jemere's real breakthrough came with the 2013 hit single "Neighborhood Girl," which landed on his debut EP, I Am Jemere. Over the next few years, he continued to tour with his father, returning with the breezy track "Anything You Want" in 2015. Finally, in 2017, Jemere delivered his full-length debut, Transition. Featuring guest spots from Jo Mersa Marley, Agent Sasco, J Boog, and his father Gramps Morgan, it was followed two years later by a second album called Self Confidence.

Willz

Native Hawaiian Reggae artist William Alohi Kauhane, better known as Willz, is an Oahu-born singer/songwriter/producer. At age five, Willz and his family moved to Volcano, located on the big island of Hawaii, where he now operates his recording studio, Glory Sound Studios. His musical journey began when he was ten years old; his grandmother would make him listen to classical music, and then soon after, he started taking piano lessons. Willz singing career would spark when he would play Guitar hero and started covering all the artists from the video game-like Gunz & Roses and The Police. As soon as Willz began high school, he started getting into reggae music and was inspired by reggae legends Bob Marley, Gregory Isaac, and Don Carlos. Willz also is inspired by local talent Oahu’s own The green and Big Island band, The Steppas, who would be a big part of shaping his sound today. Willz has recently stepped away from touring multi-grammy-nominated reggae artist J Boog and Big Island band One Rhythm to pursue his solo career.
