Being the Son of one of Jamaica's most respected Musician (George Miller aka “Dusty” Drummer and Bandleader of legendary #FirehouseCrew), it seemed natural that Artiste Jahbar I would follow in his father's path. 

Just 21, he has already recorded a number of songs for Jamaican and European producers, impressing all with his unique delivery.
Jahbar I's love for music developed at an early age, as there was no way around, being not with his Father at the Studio, Rehearsals needier Live Performances. Naturally he started on drums, having watched his father George, who is also a producer, paved the way for Jahbar I. As a toddler, he made numerous appearances on stage alongside roots luminary Luciano JahMessenjah, whose official band was The Firehouse Crew, dancing and 'holding a vibration'.

He also accompanied his father to studio sessions and became part of the 'Firehouse family'. At age 10, he began playing drums on recordings for high-profile artistes such as Gentleman, Sizzla Kalonji as well as acts from Japan.
 

While in high school, Jahbar I was a member of a group known as the 'Knock Out Crew'. After the death of a close friend, he wrote a tribute song (Tribute to Kimali) in his honor; the tragedy sparked his consciousness even more.

In late 2012, he released his first songs “I Just Be Me” ( Re-Birth Riddim), and “The Chant” (I Fawud), (Ansa Di Question Riddim).

He has done Collaborations with Cape Verde singer Kaya, Holland singer Leah Rosier and African artiste Ras Haitrm.
He has since released songs such as “Many Talking”, "High Tonic", "Nuh Paper Soulja" “Bakklefield” etc.
In January 2015, Jahbar I made his major show debut at Rebel Salute and also in december of 2017 he appeared at Tarrus Riley and Friends Live annual show.

Though he has been around countless artistes, Jahbar I finds it difficult to pinpoint any main influence.
Jahbar I : "I am a Fan of many Artistes calling a name would be an endless list. Musically, I just want to be the best of me."
