Being A Welsh Reggae Artist Is Not The Oxymoron You Think It Is!

Blessings, love and light! My name is Aleighcia Scott and I’m a Welsh-Jamaican Reggae artist from Cardiff.

A Reggae artist from Cardiff you say? Yes! 

I was born in Cardiff to a Welsh mum and a Welsh-Jamaican dad whose parents were born and raised in Trelawny, Jamaica.

Growing up I had a strong presence of both cultures. Spending so much time around my dad's family I was heavily influenced by my Jamaican roots – with reggae for breakfast, lunch and dinner!

I find it hard describing my love of reggae music, it’s more of a feeling to me, not just a sound. The feeling and connection to the words, the riddim and the bass is just indescribable – the connection to the audience, musicians and the energy of live shows!
