DUB vocalist Jah9 will be performing with her backing band, The Dub Treatment, at the Countryside Club in Half-Way-Tree tomorrow.

The event -- The Dub Treatment -- will see the Warning artiste sharing the stage for the first time with the outfit since the launch of her year-old set New Name.

According to Jah9, the event will not only showcase her music, but will take a holistic look at all the elements which makes her who she is.

As such, the event will also feature displays of indigenous craft and art, spoken word presentations, African-inspired fashion and dance, as well as discussions on Rastafari.

"The live music will form an integral part of the event, but patrons will get a little insight into the way I live and get to know a little bit about Jah9," she told the Jamaica Observer.

Fresh from her performance at the inaugural Blue Mountain Music Festival last weekend, Jah9 continued to give thanks for what

she describes as an incredible year.

"The year has really been great. We dropped the debut CD New Name, without a major distribution deal. Printed a thousand CDs and it sell off. We also had the opportunity to perform in various venues including four of the major festivals

in Europe."

A performance at the South Africa Poetry Festival and a trip to the United States Virgin Islands also stand out for the young artiste,

whose given name is Janine Cunningham.

Her second album is set to be released later this year and will feature the producing talents of renowned Stone Love selector Rory Gilligan, who is the creative talent behind her debut effort.

"Rory is now my brother. Both our journeys are evolving at the same time. He totally understands my music and there is much more to come in 2014," Jah9 said.
