BIOGRAPHY

PROTOJE is one of the best precursors of the new generation of reggae artists. Known for his innovative spirit and genre-blending music – blending reggae, hip-hop, R&B and soul – he has been a consistent force in Jamaican music over the past decade.

From his breakthrough 2014 hit "Who Knows" with Chronixx (over 200 million views on YouTube), to his second Grammy nomination in 2023 for his album "THIRD TIME'S THE CHARM (following the album's nomination "A MATTER OF TIME" in 2018), PROTOJE quickly rose to the rank of the biggest current headliners in this style, while continuing to break down the barriers between styles and assert its vision. His latest projects have been praised by the media well beyond Jamaica and reggae channels: Vogue, Billboard, BBC, Trace TV, Le Monde, Télérama, Rolling Stone, Nova, FIP, Le Mouv', RFI... He also continues to tour the biggest festivals such as Coachella, Glastonbury, Lollapalooza, Reading & Leeds, Rototom Sunsplash, Reggae Sumfest, Summerjam, Dour, Les Eurockéennes, Cabaret Vert, Boomtown Festival, Couleur Café, No Logo, Nancy Jazz Pulsations... He has performed several hundred concerts in North and South America, Europe, Africa and Asia, including opening acts for LAURYN HILL. In the United Kingdom, they made history with CHRONIXX by bringing together more than 10,000 people at “Alexandra Palace”. At Summerjam in 2022, he closes the festival on the main stage with an anthology concert, and will be scheduled there again in 2023. In September 2022, PROTOJE released the album “THIRD TIME’S THE CHARM”, its sixth studio album and second on RCA Records, recorded in its home studio The Habitat, located in the Kingston hills. With “A MATTER OF TIME” and “IN SEARCH OF LOST TIME”, “THIRD TIME’S THE CHARM” closes a trilogy around the idea of ​​time. Each of these albums reflects a new pivotal period in PROTOJE's life, which sparked new thoughts and visions about the world, and personal and professional introspection, as a man, father and artist. With this opus, PROTOJE kept his reggae roots while integrating all the sounds he learned to love, resulting in a strong album, praised by critics and featuring featurings with JORJA SMITH, LILA IKÉ, JESSE ROYAL, SAMORY I. He also called on a range of musical visionaries from his native island such as producers like Iotosh, Ziah .Push and Zion I Kings, as well as the British Cadenza for the co-production of "Late At Night" feat LILA IKE . In November 2023, he released a new, more roots version of this album entitled “IN SEARCH OF ZION”. 2023 was also an opportunity for PROTOJE to tour in Europe twice: at summer festivals (Couleur Café, Summerjam, No Logo, Rototom Sunsplash, Nancy Jazz Pulsations...), and in theaters in the fall with notably a date at the Olympia in Paris on October 21, accompanied by LILA IKÉ, a new rising reggae star supported by PROTOJE since its beginnings. In 2024, he will be visiting Europe at a few festivals.
