“Born and raised in Kingston, Jamaica, I am an early student of the Christian and Rastafari traditions standing now as a committed Orthodox Christian,” said the artist. “I could be described as a riddim chanter, using classic reggae beats to convey a message drawn from the Gospels keeping it grounded in everyday life experiences. Hopefully the songs I write will emote joy, comfort, and healing where necessary as well as challenge stereotypes and perspectives. My earlier volume of work can be found online under the name of Don Hartley alongside Nucleus Roots. During these years I also did works with Faya Dub out of Paris using the same title. 2019 is the launch of my solo career as Daniel Hartley where I produce and promote my own material as I see fitting.”
