There is an exciting resurgence of conscious, organic music in Jamaica as industry experts and observers agree that Protoje is playing an important role in what is becoming known as the Revival. Not only has he been endorsed by the legendary Bob Andy, one of the premier songwriters in Reggae's rich history; also, noted local journalist, Mel. Cooke, qualified the artist's impact with the headline, "Protoje speaks for generation next."

Leading the militant band, Indiggnation, this powerful songwriter and philosophical thinker articulates the righteous anger of an emerging generation. Protoje reports for duty, re-establishing the standard for the decaying art of socially responsible, mentally stimulating lyricism.

Of his debut album, The Seven Year Itch, David Rodigan declared in an interview: "I'm particularly impressed with the album... which I think is very refreshing." His second album wasThe 8 Year Affair, released in early 2013. Its first single, 'Who Dem A Program,' signaled that the Affair would bring with it an entirely different mental stimulation than the Itch. Another track from the album, "Kingston Be Wise," was selected to be part of the soundtrack for Grand Theft Auto V. Now the top selling video game in history, it sybmolizes just one more step up the ladder of Protoje's fast rising career.

Now with two major European tours under his belt, including headlining plays at some of the biggest festivals on the continent, Protoje & The Indiggnation turn their sights to the United States, where they plan to have an even bigger impact in the coming months---laying the groundwork for the next big album release scheduled for Fall 2014.
