J Boog (Jerry Afemata), a reggae singer of Samoan descent was born in Long Beach and raised in Compton, CA. He is the youngest of seven brothers and one sister who come from hard-working parents that relentlessly instilled a strong cultured household.
Currently residing back and forth between Hawaii and California, J Boog has been working incessantly since the release of his debut album «Hear Me Roar» (2007). He followed that up with his sophomore album «Backyard Boogie» (2011) which topped the US Billboard Charts and iTunes charts in numerous countries.
J Boog has shared his craft & has toured around the world: Europe, Africa, Dubai, New Zealand, Australia, The US & Japan all have felt the authenticity of J Boog.
Jerry helped pave the way for many Polynesian artists with the help of island music pioneer George «Fiji» Veikoso. The two met in 2005. They immediately clicked and created a sound that opened many doors for the Polynesian community. In 2008, J Boog joined Hawaii/San Francisco based recording & record label, Wash House Music Group Inc. Together they've been on a journey that most promising with endless limits.
Shortly after that, J Boog teamed up with Yami Bolo & Gramps Morgan of reggaeʻs royal family, Morgan Heritage. They embarked on a journey to have J Boog witness the culture of Jamaican music & history. This being Jerry’s first visit to Jamaica, he was completely overwhelmed & found himself working in historic studios: Bob Marley's «Tuff Gong Studio», Don Corlean's «Hit Maker Studio», Bobby Digitals «Digital B Studio», Shaggy’s «Big Yard Studio» & Sugar Minotts «Youth Man Promotions». All very prestigious recording artists & compounds. He was constantly surrounded by several artists he had been influenced by and many of these artists where featured on his 2011 release Backyard Boogie. Backyard Boogie entertained a wide spectrum of reggae fans, old & new. It gave a variety of roots, r&b, lovers rock and good vibes. Hits included: Let’s Do It Again produced by Don Corleon and Sunshine Girl produced by Gramps Morgan featuring Morgan Heritage front man Peetah Morgan.
The success of Backyard Boogie earned J Boog Best Entertainer Award at the 2012 Irawma Awards held in Chicago, IL. A year later, he dropped a 5 song EP called «Live Up» & a mix-tape collaboration with fashionista powerhouse Diamond Supply Co. His most recent EP «Rose Petals» (2016) peaked the US Billboards & iTunes Charts at #1 & was nominated for Best Reggae Album of the Year at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards. It featured hip hop mogul Snoop Dog & six-time Grammy Award winner Stephen «Ragga» Marley. The Rose Petals EP was just a little foreplay to what would become his next full length album called «Wash House Ting».
A true student of music; you can catch J Boog on worldwide tours across the globe, on radio interviews or in the studio working on new material. His humility has gained him true fans everywhere he goes while exercising, MUSIC IS THE ONLY UNIVERSAL TONGUE. Stay tuned…
