2014 continues to be an outstanding year for Exco Levi who made Canadian history where Reggae is concerned by winning the 2014 Reggae Recording of the Year category, marking 3 consecutive wins.
The only artist to win 3 back to back Juno Awards (the Canadian equivalent of a Grammy) for Best Reggae Recording, this accomplishment is shared by his co-performer, Kabaka Pyramid, and producer, Silly Walks Discotheque. The Awards, held in Winnipeg, Canada, is the 44th annual production which recognizes the best Canadian talent in a wide range of genres. Exco’s acceptance speech thanked all who were involved in the songs production, and thanked the great country of Canada who helped him realize his dream of being a recording artist.
Reaction from the international community has been swift as Manager and producer Donovan Germaine, label mate Busy Signal, and backing sound system Rootsman Sound have all expressed congratulatory praise on the win. Donovan Germaine says “I am very proud of Exco. He is making good music which the people love … the sky is the limit.”
Exco just completed a West Coast tour of the United States, and will be on tour in Europe in April, 2014. The artist recently released “Cali Farmer” and “Wadada” which are Dubwise and available for download at the links below.
