Janine Cuningham, daughter of preacher from Trelawny, like many other Jamaican kids started to sing in a church choir.

Also there, in her early childhood, this future empress of reggae began to experiment with rhymes.

Strongly influenced by jazz and gospel, she later began her solo career as a singer, writing her own lyrics and music, and that’s how Jah9 became one of the brightest stars of roots reggae revival.

“Hardcore” is one of her recent videos, featured on Jah9’s latest album simply called “9”.
