DEVARIO JONES a.k.a VOLTAGE
One of the Jamaican artistes that is contributing to the genre of Reggae/Dancehall music is Devario Jones, more popularly known as Voltage.
The artiste got the stage name Voltage, while recording his first song called “Bad name.” The name came about because of his energetic delivery in the booth. A rasta man who was there asked him what was his stage name and when the artiste told him “Varo Jaro,”he gave him the name Voltage on the spot saying that he needed a name to match his vibrant, energetic personality.
This truly talented artiste was born in the parish of Kingston to mother Blooming Rose and father Michael Jones. He spent his early years in the Mountain View area and then later moved Meadowbrook Estate where he spent most of his childhood years.
Voltage had a very good relationship with his mother while growing up and says that she was a major influence in his life and his decision of becoming a recording artiste. She was the one that helped to get foot in the industry and for that Voltage is eternally grateful.
Voltage captured the vision that he wanted for his life from the age 19.
The artiste remembers as a youngster, looking up to names such as Beenie Man, Ninja Man, Bounty Killer Cutty Ranks and Buju Banton. He started visiting studios with his mother and family friend Eazy Wayne who taught him a lot about the music business. He first ventured into audio engineering under the supervision of his mother, who suggested that as a second option to music.
Anchor Studios was where Voltage first got his introduction to the music business as an audio engineer. He then began working for world renowned recording artiste, Beres Hammond.
While working as an audio engineer he again had the inkling to work on his career as a recording artiste. He worked on his first single back in 2006 and from that time onward his focus has been on recording good quality music.
Voltage describes his style of music as a mixture of reggae and dancehall. He says that people will find his music interesting because it is fun, uplifting, real and there is always a lesson learnt.
The recording artiste has worked with producers such as Clive Hunt, Askell (Michael Fairman) and Tony Cameron.
Voltage is currently working on new songs such as “Harden,” “Give Thanks Mama,” “Hustlaz,” “Jah Mi Give Thanks” “First Class Love” and “Love School.”
Now in 2015 Voltage is busy in the studio recording new tracks under his record label Arkitech Music Productions3. Through persistence and dedication, Voltage will breakthrough as a mainstream artiste and says the sky is the limit as he seeks to take his positive message to the world.
