Born of Jamaican and Nigerian parents and raised in Ireland, rapper JyellowL has drawn on all three aspects of his background to create a sound and vision that sets him apart on the domestic scene. Currently studying politics at UCD, his subject matter explores the social and global problems that intrigue and disturb him - from weighty topics to the lessons taught him by his Jamaican grandmother on how to be himself in a world that wants to force you down one particular path. Following the release of his summer single 'Medusa' (a stinging attack at false rappers and the fake nature of the music industry) and a string of festival dates that included a memorable Longitude appearance, he returned to the fray with the first track from the Me and Me 2 EP. 'Oh Lawd' - featuring a guest turn from UK star Aaron U.N.K.N.OW.N. 2018 came to a riotous close with an Irish tour in support of R&B superstar Nelly, critical acclaim for the aforementioned EP and two stunning shows at Other Voices in Dingle.
Named as one of RTE 2FM’s Rising acts for 2019, he has released two singles via Gentleman Records - the catchy ‘Ozone’ and hard hitting ‘Tek Time’, featured on Spotify’s influential Who We Be playlist and proving to be one of his biggest songs to date. Live shows included a debut London appearance as well as festival slots at Longitude, Body & Soul and Knockanstockan. He has just announced his largest headline gig so far at Whelan’s in Dublin on October 10th.
