J Boog is keeping true to his namesake. Nicknamed “Boog” by his siblings because he could never sit still for long, J Boog is currently living and traveling between Hawaii and California. J Boog has not taken a break since the release of his debut album “Hear Me Roar” in 2007. It was his close collaboration with island music pioneer, George “Fiji” Veikoso, whom he met in 2005, that has helped spur the creation of J Boog’s unique sound, as well as pave the way for many other Polynesian artists. Another great milestone in the creation of J Boog’s debut album was when he joined the Hawaii/San Francisco based musical family, Wash House Music Inc. This collaboration started J Boog on a journey that would keep him plenty busy and would also provide the influence for his follow-up album.
In 2008 J Boog teamed up with Yami Bolo and a member of reggae’s royal family, Ambassador Gramps Morgan of Morgan Heritage. He then traveled to Jamaica to experience the culture of Jamaican reggae. This being J Boog’s first visit to Jamaica he did not expect to find himself working in such amazing studios such as Bob Marley’s “Tuff Gong Studio” , Don Corlean’s “Hit Maker Studio”, Bobby Digital’s “Digital B Studio”, Shaggy’s ” Big Yard Studio” and Sugar Minott’s “Youth Man Promotions”. Guided by Gramps Morgan, J Boog found himself surrounded by several artists he himself had been influenced by and would later appear on his follow-up album, “Backyard Boogie” in 2011. Backyard Boogie entertained a great spectrum of reggae fans and invited new reggae fans around the world, offering a variety of musical roots, including R&B and Rock. J Boog got back to that feel good, be himself music that is uniquely his. “Backyard Boogie” topped the US Billboard charts and iTunes charts in numerous countries. Featured hits were “Let’s Do It Again”, produced by legendary Don Corleon, and “Sunshine Girl”, produced by Gramps Morgan/Dada-son and featured Morgan Heritage front man, Peetah Morgan. The success of Backyard Boogie earned J Boog the Best New Entertainer Award at the 2012 International Reggae and World Music Awards held in Chicago.
J Boog is a true student of music. He is currently and constantly collaborating and recording, getting his sound out for others to enjoy in many creative ways. In 2013 and 2014 he recorded several singles both independently and collaboratively. In July he released the EP “Live Up!” on Washhouse Hawaii, which reached #18 on the Top Heatseekers chart and #4 on Top Reggae Albums. He has also worked on a mixtape release of his tracks called “My Diamond Life” for fashionista powerhouse Diamond Supply Co. J Boog has toured around the world in locations such as Europe , Africa, Dubai, New Zealand, Australia, United States, and Japan, just to name a few. His music is transparent and preaches that music is the only universal tongue. However, what stays with his listeners is his humility, his deeply ingrained commitment to his family and to his proud culture.
