Jah Works is a Baltimore-based band that provides positive vibes and uncompromising roots rock reggae music. Formed in 1993, it consistently performs hundreds of shows a year worldwide in clubs, at festivals and near the sun-drenched beaches of Negril. Its sound is firmly planted in the roots of Jamaican music and culture, encompassing rock steady, reggae and elements of dancehall and dub. What Jah Works does best is introduce the novice music listener to the fullness of reggae music and culture.

The band found its identity while listening to the song “Jah Works” by the classic Jamaican vocal group The Gladiators. Starting with “Feast or Famine” in 1994, the band has recorded and released nine albums. It has sold more than 100,000 copies independently.
