ISIGHT:

"Serious Roots, with a sound somewhere between Prince Lincoln and Pablo Moses".
                                                                              - Ernie B's Reggae

 

"Jah Eye pulls out all the stops on I Sight utilizing such disparate elements as rap, dub poetry and falsetto...a stellar lineup of L.A.'s finest musicians including Lesterfari, Mark Tyson and original Soul Syndicate drummer Santa Davis for a roots tour de force.  The songs stick to cultural themes with standout tracks including "Black Liberation", "No More War", "Children of the Ghetto", and "In This Time".  Through it all the sound is relaxed and rootsy, exemplifying the message music that helped establish reggae as a living force".

WORLD WIDE DECEPTION:

"Based in Southern California - he is by day the reggae buyer for one of L.A.'s better independent record shops - Jah Eye returns with World Wide Deception (Unity Works), an uncompromising solo release that's not afraid to tackle the big issues on songs like "Slave Name", "Terrorist", and "Revolution" and shows an ability to act locally while thinking globally on cuts such as "Neighborhood Crisis", "Cell Phone Abuse", and "Global Fiyah".  Co produced with Boom Shaka's Lesterfari and featuring players like Santa Davis and Mark Tyson the disc has a crisp sound and an up tempo feel with a message best exemplified by the quote from His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie which graces the back cover: 'We must become bigger than we have been.  More courageous, greater in spirit, larger in outlook.  We must become neighbors of a new race, overcoming petty prejudice, owing our ultimate allegiance not to nations but to our fellow men within the human community".
