Born to the religion of music, and chanting faith in Rastafari, Exco Levi is one of Reggae’s most attractive voices who’s unafraid to deliver uplifting messages wrapped in engaging melodic compositions. Coming from roots based in Manchester, Jamaica, Exco migrated to Toronto, Canada in his teens, and pursued music as a career. Following in the footsteps of his Father who is himself an artist and sound system selector, Exco realized his gift for writing significant lyrics, and weaving those lyrics with song. Using a notebook and pen, Exco has crafted some of the most thought provoking singles in Reggae since 2009. “Bleaching Shop” addresses the controversy of people bleaching their skin to become lighter in complexion, while “Mr. Hammer” speaks to violence plaguing communities, and the irreversible effects of those acts. “Storms of Life”, an internationally accepted anthem, encourages all listeners to not give up even though the storms of life sometimes blow around them.
Jamaican/Canadian musician Exco Levi pays tribute to the founders of reggae music through a modern twist of poetry and sound. On a mission to deliver his message to the world, Exco has performed internationally, including a feature performance in Zimbabwe. This multiple award winning artists songs are just as potent on his lips as they are on record and his ability to quickly engage and convince his audience has led to him being in high demand for many colourful collaborations including Busy Signal, Chronixx, Kabaka Pyramid, Donovan Germaine and other top artists, DJs, promoters and producers worldwide.
In recognition of his song writing and music making skills, Exco has earned Canada’s top award in music 4 consecutive times; the JUNO for Best Reggae Recording 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 which is based on votes collected by the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences.
Exco Levi is one of the best who stays true to his faith, and is unafraid to express it through his religion of music!
