Music with a purpose and a mission.

“Although times hard, and things seems rough, Hold the Faith, because Jah is Great!”

As a youth, Mark Dyer used to compete in school talent shows. Later he studied Human Rights in college. By 2000, he had combined his passions, mixing them with a grounding dose of Rastafarian rootical love, and taken on the symbolic stage name of Warrior King. His debut single, Virtuous Woman, was an international success in 2001 and showcased his still to use music to educate and uplift.

In 2010, he was recognized by the United Negro Improvement Association (UNIA) and received the Marcus Garvey Music Award for keeping the music conscious and for recording and performing the poetry of Marcus Garvey.

A seasoned and talented professional who exudes good vibes both on and off stage, Warrior King is down to earth, kind, and respectful. On February 10, 2013, we had the privilege of seeing this musical warrior for righteousness in Oakland, California.

Thanks to DJ Smoky and King of Kings for bringing the King to Oakland’s New Parish.
