Born in Kingston, Jamaica in August 1990,
Immanuel 'Ras-I' Kerr like many musicians
was exposed to music and musical
instruments at a very young age. The
multifaceted artiste sings, writes and arranges
all his songs, produces, plays guitar,
keyboard and percussions.
Classifying his music as roots reggae with
notes of old school rhythm and blues and a
little funk, he draws from the exemplary
influences of reggae veterans like The
Abyssinians, Brigadier Jerry, Bob Marley,
Dennis Brown, Uroy and Peter Tosh. As well
as rhythm and blues acts like Smokey
Robinson and Teddy Pendergrass.
Ras-I's music evokes a strong sense of responsibility and purpose. "I make music to
uplift and enlighten people. My music is relatable, and it still gives people a positive
perspective on life."
Soulful and wise beyond his years Ras-I's music knocks on the door of your conscience
