Samory-Tour Frazer, otherwise known as Samory I was born November 21, 1989, a Gaddite, to parents Owen and Muriel Frazer. Samory I has a passion for music and as a child, he sang every day. An ardent church goer, he performed at many church functions and brought the congregations to tears on many occasions upon hearing his melodious sounds. He greatly admired the reggae icons of his day and once ask his dad at age 4 “do you know where Sizzla lives?” as he would love to meet him.

Samory I was part of a group JDT that entered many competitions and were successful in quite a few. It’s now 2013 and Samory I has decided to take his career seriously by recording. He met with First Born Management Bridgett Anderson who has been responsible for the careers of Garnet Silk and Jahmali to name a few. This synergy resulted in the young artiste performing for the first time at the Digicel’s Bob Marley Tribute at Emancipation Park and the Dennis Brown tribute on the Water Front. He has been performing at quite a few events since the launch of his career in 2013.

His recording career has also taken great strides with him recording his first single for AJANG Records ‘Just Believe’. He has also recorded a few tracks with renowned producer Niney The Observer. This allowed him the distinct honour of working with ace musicians the likes of Sly Dunbar, the late Style Scott, Errol ‘Flabba’ Holt, Dalton Brownie, Dean Fraser and Nambo Robinson to name a few. He is presently in studio with Rory Stone Love recording his debut album on the Black Dub label. Both producer and artiste are excited about this project. Tracks on the album include ‘Take Me Oh Jah’, ‘Rasta No Gangsta’. The first single to be released in December 2014 is entitled ‘African Queen’. The launch for this will coincide with the RJR Groups Kingston Music Week. The sky is the limit for this talented lyricist and singer.

Samory I in the prime of his life is convinced that he has been summoned by the Almighty God with his God given talent to be a voice of Jah, to the people, proclaiming that reggae music is indeed the music of the King and a voice from God ready to guide and deliver His people. Gad… A troope shall press upon him but he will overcome in the end.
