Long Beach, California-born, Compton-raised reggae singer J Boog has announced a Feb. 16 show at the Knitting Factory as part of his “Rose Petals” winter tour.
J Boog burst onto the scene in 2007 with his debut album “Hear Me Roar,” which he followed up in 2011 with “Backyard Boogie.”
“Backyard Boogie” earned J Boog the Best Entertainer award at the 2010 International Reggae and World Music Awards, and the next year, he released an EP called “Live Up” and a mixtape with Diamond Supply Co.
He released the “Rose Petals” EP in 2016. The EP, which features Snoop Dogg and Stephen Marley, received a nomination for best reggae album at the Grammys last year.
J Boog released his latest album, “Wash House Ting,” in 2016.
Earthkry and Eddy Dyno will join J Boog at the show.
