Jamie became friends with many industry professionals, namely artists such as Daddy Freddy, Tenafly, Sir Coxson HIFI and the late Ivanhoe Campbell from Severn Sound radio. Les from the Kandy Shop to name a few. It wasn’t long before Jamie was penning and recording tracks of his own. By 1994 Jamie was living in America, during this time he had begun performing live and started touring. Irie quickly found himself rising to fame as he worked with some of the top names in the dance-hall and reggae scene, both in New York & Jamaica.
