Lutan Fyah is one of those people who can do it all, and be good at it too. Up until 1999 he was a star footballer playing midfield for premier league teams including Portmore United, Constant Spring, and De La Vega. He also graduated from St. Andrew Tech High School wth passes in building and achitecture. Musically speaking, he is one of the more talented and original artistes in the reggae world today. Lutan Fyah's vibes start with the tone of his voice, as a hint of classic singer, Bunny Wailer, chimes through from time to time.
It continues with his poetic sing-jay style which he uses to teach the youths about non-violence, and to tell the world about the 'ghetto situation in Jamaica. In the studio you will not only find Lutan Fyah in a vocal booth recording his lyrics, but also behind the keyboards, the guitar, and the Kette drum. Lutan Fyah comes from a place called Thompson Pen located in St. Catherine, Jamaica, and was born on December 6th, 1975. His musical inspiration comes from the days of following his grandfather's soundsystem as he would dream of becoming a great singer. In 1999 he gave up football to go full time with music. Soon after, he began an internship with deejay Buju Banton at Banton's Gargamel Studio.
It was there at Gargamel Studio that Lutan Fyah would eventually record his first release, 'Ambassdor', and continue with 15 other records under the same roof. In 2001 Lutan Fyah met conscious deejay Jah Mason and was invited to record a series of singles with him. This lead to an international tour with Jah Mason including stops to Los Angeles, London, San Francisco, Seattle, Nassau, Atlanta, and New York. Up to date Lutan Fyah has recorded and released 2 solid albums and is set to release his third called 'Phantom War' this year in April.
