Land of the Free

Autarchii (Born Jermaine Joseph) is a fiery 23 year old Roots Recording artiste who hails from Portmore, Jamaica. Being the son of Veteran Recording Artist Donovan Joseph and cousin to the crown prince of Reggae Dennis Brown, it seems almost destined for him to carry the torch of righteousness towards the next generation. The former Kingston College student is one who draws along the line of witty insightfulness and positive aggression. He has had the pleasure to be a mentee of the late legendary Wayne ‘Sleng Teng’ Smith, who taught him many ins and outs of the music Industry at a tender age. To date, he is one of two Recording Artists that make up the neo-roots movement called ‘HOWKLEAR’, which is an acronym explaining that in order to reach the heights of wisdom one must first know, learn, execute and then they will rise. The name Autarchii is a depiction of ‘autarchy,’ which means absolute rule or power. It was officially placed on him by his cousin in New York, who believed that his revolutionary approach to the music would make him inextinguishable.

He released the music video for the renowned single ‘Grow’ and collaborated with Fari Difuture on a 10 track Ep entitled “Generation (Y )? The HOWKLEAR Project” in 2015. Autarchii has been working closely with his father and Indie-Rootz Records of lately. A collaboration of such will see him releasing his debut album ‘Land of The Free’ in July 2017, which will blow the minds of average human beings living in the New World. The Indie-Rootz produced ‘Land of The Free’ single was premiered by Reggaeville on February 28, 2017.

Thus far, fans all around the globe believe Autarchii is here to stay and continuously look forward to his releases. Hence, the fervent fortisian feels the sky is just the ground and that there is no limit when it comes to him bearing the fruits of his musical labor.
