Originally from Cologne, Gentleman established himself as an unmissable new-roots artist. Born into a family where religion is of importance, at a very strong age he developed a passion for reggae. Being neither Rasta nor from Jamaica, German Gentleman does not appear destined to become the most talented European reggae artist. But this is exactly the tour de force achieved by this reggae addict.
When listening to his voice, one can comprehend how much Gentleman is a true artist who believes in what he is singing. As an advocate of energetic conscious dancehall, Gentleman keeps himself powered up since « Trodin On »in 1999, including
« Confidence » (2004), « Another Intensity » (2007) and « Diversity » (2010) which became large-scale popular and commercial successes.
In 2016, Ky-Mani joined Gentleman and together they produced « Conversations », an 18 track project based on a pure artistic exchange, influenced by a personal dialogue, by an exchange of ideas and feelings and an invitation to explore.
After more than 20 years’ live experience and more than 1000 concerts around the world, the artist released « The Selection »in 2017 in which he showcases the best of his 8 gold and platinum albums!
