Over Three Decades Representing World Music and Reggae Artists
Fast Lane International,
founded in 1984 to spread the positive conscious energy and
message of Reggae Music, has entered its fourth decade of
representation for artists in the reggae and world beat genres.
Classic roots reggae greats and exciting new world music artists
grace the roster for 2017. The agency also continues to assist
venues and event planners with bookings, budgeting and talent
From such a broad base of experience in the market, it can be
noted that the business of music has gone through some dramatic
changes, especially over the past ten years with the advent of
social media. It is the goal of this agency to assist artists in
understanding the dynamics of this change and what is now
required of artists serious about developing an audience or fan
base prior to booking engagements. Fast Lane is prepared to
offer guidance and encouragement to emerging artists and share
the prospects of exciting new talent with venues and promoters.
To that end Fast Lane is pleased to introduce new and exciting international artists to US markets and to foster the exposure of more classic reggae greats to younger audiences.
This year has proven to be an exceptional one for classic Roots Reggae greats
Culture (now fronted by Kenyatta Hill) on a worldwide tour in celebration of the 40th Anniversary of the Two Sevens Clash Album which Rolling Stone in 2007 called the “coolest Reggae Album of all time”
Kenyatta Hill, embarking on a solo career, has released both a highly-acclaimed album and several singles on Honest Music and is touring to promote them. His latest collaboration with Puma P’tah, of Thievery Corp, and Vaughn Benjamin, titled
Policeman, is a remake of the same titled 1980 hit by Joseph Hill, and might be an ideal anthem for the Black Lives Matter movement

Jah9, the first lady of the neo-roots reggae revival comes with her new album on VP records simply titled 9. Old school blues improvisation, meets hard hitting lyrical prowess, in a rich imaginative blend of vocal clarity and complexity. She sings with a voice that belies the dimensions of her physical body, from a soul much older than its current vessel. Her philosophy is profoundly spiritual, and ...her style is Jazz on Dub.
From Italy comes Mellow Mood who are currently taking Europe and South America by storm and return to US tour in 2018 after making their US debut as a favorite at the Sierra Nevada World Music Fest in 2016, returned to SNWMF added Cali Roots Fest and multiple west coast engagements to their 2017 Tour.
