Introducing the multi-genre recording and performing artist Papa Rosko, who released his self-titled debut album on October 16, 2020. Papa Rosko pulls together a wide spectrum of genres on his debut album, fusing elements of rock, pop, alternative, Latin, and country music into a seamless reggae sound.
The self-titled album features collaborations with Reggae legends Toots & The Maytals, reggae and dancehall star Gyptian, and Third World lead singer AJ Brown.

“A reggae reimagining of a Johnny Cash song would be intriguing no matter who made it, but what makes this extra special is the guest appearance of none other than Toots Hibbert of the legendary Toots & the Maytals…The song is a stone cold groover.”
-Glide Magazine

“We’ve all heard “When You Say Nothing At All”… only this time, it’s dressed to party… With playful keys, lively horns and such a colorful video to boot.”

Rooted in a diverse mix of reggae with rock, Latin, dub, and pop, Papa Rosko’s music blurs the lines between genre and geography. It’s a sound filled with tropical grooves and larger-than-life hooks, created by a singer/songwriter whose background is as multicultural as the songs that fill his self-titled debut.

Years before recording his debut album with help from reggae hit-makers like the legendary Toots & the Maytals’ Toots Hibbert (in one of his final studio appearances), Third World’s AJ Brown, and dancehall artist Gyptian, Papa Rosko grew up on the move. His father’s work required the family to relocate often, and Papa Rosko found himself bouncing between countries like Turkey, the Philippines, Mexico, Canada, and the US. Along the way, he fell in love with the unique sounds of each place he visited, including Caribbean music, which he gleaned from a friend in Canada, an immigrant from Trinidad. That appreciation for a wide range of music would find its way into his own songwriting, with Papa Rosko eventually finding himself in Nashville developing a singular sound that fused reggae rhythms with elements of multiple genres.
