The Jamaican singer talks his debut LP A.M.E.N., a tribute to his late wife.

Raised in the “Concrete Jungle” of West Kingston’s Trench Town neighborhood, Nesbeth made a name for himself in the ‘00s as part of the next generation of Jamaican roots reggae singers with socially conscious hits like “Board House” and “Let It Be.” His fame reached new heights with his 2015 song “My Dream,” which Jamaica’s prime minister Andrew Holness quoted in his 2016 inauguration speech. On this week’s episode of The Federation Sound, he joins host Max Glazer in our NYC studio to discuss his life, career, and his first proper LP A.M.E.N., which he produced himself and features the likes of Agent Sasco and Popcaan, and is dedicated to his late wife, Ann Marie Elliot Nesbeth.
