Born of Jamaican and Nigerian parents and raised in Ireland, rapper JyellowL has drawn on all three aspects of his background to create a sound and vision that sets him apart on the domestic scene and has found him rapidly win acclaim in the UK and beyond. Having been named as one of 2FM's Rising acts for 2019, the year has seen a string of video and audio releases, culminating in the fiery 'Tek Time' (via Dutch label Gentlemen Records) - featured on Spotify's New Music Friday and influential Who We Be playlists. Live he has made his London and Belfast debuts (the latter a memorable co-headline with Kneecap) and appeared at Longitude, Body & Soul, Music Cork, Bands On The Strand and Knockanstockan festivals.

Today, however, sees an announcement that looks set to push his career to a new level with the news that he is one of a handful of artists selected to appear on the soundtrack for the world famous FIFA 20 game from EA Sports. The only Irish act to feature, his 'Ozone' track takes its place alongside music from the likes of Major Lazer, Post Malone, Foals, Avicii, J Cole, Logic and Meek Mill.  "When I was younger I used to dream that I’d be on FIFA as a player by FIFA 20", he says. "Now that it’s that time, I’m not playing..buuuut MY SONG IS!"

Currently working on his first album for release in 2020, he will play his largest headline show to date at Whelan's on October 10th, backed by a live band that includes some of the most skilled musicians working in Ireland today.
