Nevada ‘Javada’ Myrie is an upcoming dancehall/reggae artist Javada setting out to create a name for himself within the music fraternity locally and internationally. Chano8 caught up with him on a live chat and this is what he had to say about himself.
Like many Jamaicans, I was exposed to music at an early age. My grandmother sang and danced with me often and this helped my love and appreciation for music to grow. As I got older, I realized that my grandmother was passionate about music and since I as so connected to her, I loved it even more. With that, I decided to not only join the music industry, but also to make sure I was able to impact the world positively through music.
In 2011, Javada took I took my first step in professional music under the stage moniker ‘Loucrative’ and released the singles “Gal you Hot” and “Cry Shame.” Within the next year I was introduced to Subkonshus Music CEO Garfield ‘Konshens’ Spence, who provided guidance and support. It was during this time that I changed my stage name from ‘Loucrative’ to ‘Javada’.
Since then, I have been working on sharpening my craft and style while still releasing music produced by Subkonshus Music, Frankie Music, Dre Pay Pro, and H20 Records.
In addition to various singles, I went on to release the mixtape ‘Rude and Smooth’ which has received over 7,000 downloads.
In 2014, I shot videos for my singles ‘Special Delivery’ and ‘Anything You Want.’ Both videos were released throughout the Caribbean and received good support from Jamaican and Caribbean music lovers.
I was given the opportunity to join Konshens on several international tours and sold out concerts including The Guinness Evolution Party in Nairobi, Kenya in April 2014 and the Oland Roots Festival in Kalmar, Sweden in July 2014 and in all this, I gained a lot of recognition and built a huge multi national fan base that appreciates and is passionate about my music.
To the fans
With influences from musical veterans such as Buju Banton and Bounty killer, I have recognized that this groundwork has been an integral step towards my ultimate goal of Dancehall domination locally and chart topping success internationally. My passion for music and the drive to strengthen my career have me working to take it all to another level.
