Spectrum and info
Born and raised in South-Central Trinidad, John Orpheus is a Pan-African poet and soon-to-be published author whose musical journey has taken him from the Caribbean bush to festivals across Canada and the US. He combines hip-hop swagger, Afrobeat energy and dancehall charisma to create a sound built on big catchy hooks. John Orpheus is known for his rabble-rousing live shows filled with audience participation, chanting and impromptu dance-offs that feel more like Caribana road parties than concerts. In September 2019, he released his debut album Wey Ya Call Dat Ting, the culmination of a three year/four mixtape project that he used to develop and hone his unique sound. Produced and co-written by JUNO nominated Mike Schlosser, John Orpheus' new single, Electric, fulfills his early promise with a noticeably more pop and upbeat vibe.
