Black Judah is the synthesis of two minds, voices and musical souls. Sugar Black and Dylan Judah have developed a brand of music, influenced by reggae, hip-hop and R&B, which is timeless.
Sugar Black is a native Jamaican who discovered his passion for music as a
child. He combined his talents and motivated spirit to become the youngest apprentice of the Black Star Sound System at age twelve. He began recording for Tony Rebel’s Flames Production and released a series of legendary singles including the 1997 #4 UK Billboard hit, ‘Oh Jah.’ Sugar Black has continued to record and perform over the past decade by being the driving force in the creation of two albums “Black Attack” (2000) and “Souljah Story” (2005).
Los Angeles-bred, Dylan Judah is a prolific singer, songwriter, and producer. He began his musical career as a young drummer in his teenage ska band, Caught in the Act (C.I.A.). Dylan began touring for C.I.A. and was opening shows for multiple national and international acts, such as No Doubt, Bunny Wailer and the Skatalites. Dylan ventured to Jamaica and lived in apartheid stricken South Africa where music is the core foundation of people their communities. Dylan explored the townships outside the cities to play and absorb the vibes directly from the roots of Reggae music. He lived in the mountains above Negril in Jamaica where he was embraced by “the yard culture” with no running water or electricity and far from tourists. The woods and people of Jamaica spoke the One Love heart beat into my soul.
Dylan formed the reggae band The Cannons in 1995. Together they released two independently produced albums, “Thanks & Praise” and “Life-Elements-Vision,” honored as Border’s best independent album of the year. In 2004, Dylan released a self titled, solo dub album which he co-produced with famed Jamaican dub fore-father, Scientist.
