GET TO KNOW: @LenoBanton


 A new wave of Roots Reggae and Reggae Fusion Artists has been popping up in Jamaica in recent years, making a change in the playing field and pleasing listeners. With the Reggae Revival introducing us to Artists like Protoje, Jesse Royal and Jah9, not only are we listening to some great music, but we have new platforms to enjoy them. One member of the new wave, Leno Banton, has been leaving a mark at every point in his journey as an Artist. 13th Street Promotions recently reached out to Leno to know more about his musical journey, the REM Collective, meeting Protoje, and how his legendary Father influenced his sound.
