2020 REGGAE RECORDING OF THE YEAR | Exco Levi | | The JUNO Awards

With music at his core, Exco Levi is one of Reggae’s most attractive voices delivering uplifting messages wrapped in engaging melodic compositions. Born in Manchester, Jamaica, Exco migrated to Canada and pursued music as a career. Levi pays tribute to the founders of reggae music through a modern twist of poetry and sound. On a mission to deliver his message to the world, Exco has represented Canada performing on European tours, California’s Reggae on the River, Sierra Nevada World Music Festival, Spain’s Rototom, Jamaica’s Sting and Rebel Salute, Canada’s major reggae festivals (including JAMBANA One World Festival) and feature performances in Zimbabwe and Malawi. This multiple award-winning artist’s songs are just as potent on his lips as they are on record and many colourful collaborations including Busy Signal, Chronixx, Kabaka Pyramid and producer Donovan Germain attest to that. Among his many accomplishments, Exco is a Brampton Arts Walk of Fame Inductee (2016) and Harry Jerome Trailblazer of the Year award winner (2019).

“Our team pursues all opportunities in Canada and globally,” Levi muses. “I’m blessed to be able to do what I am doing. There are new territories to reach as we share the Exco Levi positive vibration movement. We continue the works. One step at a time.”
