"I like to classify my genre as Music. I like to call it Seasoned Music"

Sampler

Meet Dax Lion, an up and coming 23 year old musician and singer from Kingston Jamaica. Dax’s lyrics and unique voice make him stand out among other Reggae artists. I caught up with Dax in the U.S. upon his return from Jamaica. My interview falls days after Dax released two new tracks online.

I’ve listened to the new tracks Gwan Natty with Biggz General and Reggae Jam Jam and asked Dax to classify his music for me.

“I like to classify my genre as Music. I like to call it Seasoned Music”. Dax explained that he has been reworking songs he wrote when he was in high school. “You can’t rush music to release it. Seasoning takes time to make it exactly what you want it to be.”

I asked about his recent trip to Jamaica. Dax explained that he met with Ron Mushette from IRIE FM. When asked about the feedback from Ron, Dax replied “Ron Mushette liked the new tracks and called my music Reggae Pop.” Ron has been playing Gwan Natty on air since the meeting.

Gwan Natty was inspired by his mother. “My Mother asked me to make music that she could listen to and be proud of. The song is about the true meaning of JAH.” When Dax is writing he keeps his lyrics clean. “It’s all about the LOVE.”

Gas Pon It has been available online for some time now can you give me the meaning behind it?

Dax Lion“We are all born with love in our hearts. It is people and life that makes us sometimes angry and upset. But if we look inside and put some Gas Pon It the love in our hearts will burn forever. Take that love all over the world to share with people as we are all One. This song brings a tear to my eye when I sing it"

As I wrap up the interview I ask Dax to share his thoughts. "I wanna take my music and vibes to the world, so many people need to hear my message. I am not gonna stop till someday they all hear it. I wanna perform in front of them so they can see my emotions when I sing and to feel the vibes we are sending. My biggest performance dreams are to perform in Africa.”

Dax and his Manager, William Watts shared some unreleased tracks from his forthcoming album with me during my visit. Each song was as good as the first. I’ll be one of the first to purchase a copy upon release in early 2012.
