Up in the hills above Kingston, Jamaica Shiah Coore talks with us about his music, his influences, the mission of Rastafari, working on the new Damian Marley project, and the state of reggae music today.
In addition to being a visionary young bassist who hails from reggae royalty, Shiah is also a talented, up-and-coming music producer. As a founding member of the independent production house Yardcoore, Shiah has worked with Damian Marley, Bounty Killa, Tami Chynn, Elephant man, Wayne Marshall, Vybz Kartel, Assassin, Voicemail and many more.

Shouts to the homie James Porteous who made everything happen. Shiah, it was a dope conversation that I'm sure we'll continue down the road. Respect for sitting down with us!
