Jami Dread
‚Jami Dread‘ (birth name: Stefan Prieler) was born in Baden in 1989. Ever since his early childhood, music has always been an important part of his life. He grew up mainly listening to ‚black‘ music genres, like Hip Hop and R&B, along with electronic based music like House and Techno. His grandfather was a big fan of Jamaican legends like Bob Marley and Peter Tosh; so his exposure to Reggae music came during the most influential part of his life, his early childhood.

While in school he realized that listening to music wasn’t fulfilling enough and his passion for making music began to emerge. His first stage experiences were made with local sound systems from his school area. From then on he performed at many small and big local events within the Lower Austrian and Vienna area. At the age of 21 he moved to Vienna where he got a job as a software engineer and began to invest money into his own recording studio. He started to work with the HighSquadzSound leader Oneil who recognized his talent and passion for music. He set up the link with the artist Indecka out of Lucea, Jamaica and fellow artists.

Together they’re trying to nurture their own label “Lyrical War Records” to bring it to a high level of recognition.
