Authentic roots reggae from Luciano
Luciano is a Jamaican roots reggae singer-songwriter and guitarist who has amassed over 25 years as a successful and well-respected artist among fans and fellow musicians alike. He's also known as Jah Messenger, or simply The Messenger, and he does indeed bring a prophet's fervour to his live performances, which you'll find out soon enough when you buy or sell Luciano tickets on StubHub.
Another Sly and Robbie protege
Luciano has worked with labels like the legendary Island, Chris Blackwell's famous nurturing place for reggae greats like Bob Marley, and he has been nominated for his fair share of Grammy Awards, one of which was for his "A New Day" album, which earned him the nod in 2002. It was produced with the near-mythical emperors of roots reggae production, not to mention the most irie rhythm section in reggae history, Sly and Robbie. With connections and credentials – and in fact peers – like that, it's no wonder at all that Luciano's name is spoken in the same reverent tones. Like many of them, he's been no stranger to hardship too, and this is reflected in the salt of the earth qualities of his music and his grassroots approach to production. He also gives a performance that really connects with his audience, which makes Luciano tickets highly prized among reggae fans from his home of Davytown to the furthest reaches of the reggae-loving world.
Luciano's collaborations with modern reggae artists
Although Luciano can easily be considered reggae royalty, he has always been open to working with younger artist, including those who have fused the many forms of reggae, like roots, dub and toasting, with other genres such as hip-hop. He has also worked with Capleton on the dancehall side of things, the two having been label-mates for quite some time. The same goes for Cocoa Tea, otherwise known as Calvin Scott, another dancehall artist and renowned Jamaican DJ. Luciano is clearly one of those artists who believes in giving back to the musical community in which he grew up, and his contributions to local reggae music, more generally than his own recordings, have made him not only well-respected in Jamaica and the broader reggae world, but also a figure regarded with much abiding affection. Your chance to see one of the true ambassadors of roots reggae lies with Luciano tickets, which you can get on StubHub right away.
