Protoje is an artist on the rise; the man widely-credited with setting the Reggae Revival in motion. Celebrated for his fresh & unique approach to the reggae sound he is very much at the forefront of a new wave of Jamaican artists set to take the world by storm.
Having released his third album ‘Ancient Future’ on Mr Bongo last year Protoje has received critical acclaim worldwide, and earned himself an army of loyal fans. His album has been sat at the top of the Reggae charts since its release last year. Three singles from the album have also had phenomenal success, not only in the Reggae world but also as mainstream Pop chart hits: ‘Who Knows’ ft. Chronixx; ‘Love Gone Cold’ Ft. Sevana; and ‘Answer To Your Name’ - Rinsed across BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 2, & BBC 1Xtra.
A busy week in May 2016 saw Protoje appearing on the UK’s biggest music TV show, BBC’s Later With Jools Holland, and also recording a BBC Radio 1 Maida Vale Live Session for Annie Mac. The demand for Protoje was so great that he also dropped into the Radio 1Xtra Live Lounge to record a session for Trevor Nelson.
Protoje has sold out headline UK tours just completed a headline US tour; and has been a firm favourite at festivals throughout the world. We are delighted to have him back on the Lion’s Den with us again this year.
