Major Myjah Gets Exposed Overseas

By CJ Johnson

majormyjahartistesbountykillerson.jpgPint size recording artist Major Myjah is on the cusp of breaking through as a young star. His first single "My Sunshine" is getting significant radio airplay in several countries, including Germany, Jamaica, Japan and Spain. The reggae inspired pop song which received only a soft release to several Disc Jockeys worldwide has garnered an unexpected frenzy. It has industry insiders as well as fans talking. In fact, the song has made such an impact that several producers and established artists have already requested 12 year-old Myjah to collaborate with them. Needless to say, Myjah's cell phone and MySpace page (MySpace.com/MajorMyjahMusic) have been busy lately. Let Myjah tell it, "I'm so excited, I've been focused on my music for a while and it looks like it’s about to pay off."

According to some media pundits, 'there is a strong buzz in the industry about Major Myjah, his international pop style is reminiscent of a crossover artist like Shaggy, even though he’s not even a teen." If it wasn't enough that Myjah has already worked with producers, Genius, Black Chiney, Leroy "Baarbroy" Romans, and Grammy winning producer Tony Kelly, he's also scheduled to work in the studio with seasoned producers Stephen McGregor, T. Mix of Cash Money Records, JR Rothem, and several others.

Forward to today, Myjah just completed the music video shoot for "My Sunshine," directed by Jay Will, who was very impressed when he heard the song for the first time. Will said, "Wow. I liked the song from the first beat. I’m so impressed." This is the general sentiment being expressed from everyone when they first hear the single. It's not just the catchy hook, infectious beat or the fact that the subject matter is universal, they are blown away that it's coming from a middle school student whose love for music and his guitar is immeasurable.

Myjah performed on Best of the Best International Music Festival when he was brought on-stage and fully endorsed by The Alliance: Bounty Killer, Movado, and Serani. On the heel of that performance was GoomBay Festival. Myjah delivered a high impact performance with the support of his dancers. There are several other concerts on his calendar as well as guest appearances.

It seems this rising superstar has been singing and writing since birth. Now a sixth grader, MJ, as he prefers to be called by his peers, has several original self-penned songs in his repertoire and has co-written with songwriters Shema McGregor, Charles Harris and Red Rat. Even at this stage, Major Myjah's music promises to be the ultimate tour-de-force for urban music connoisseurs.
