Using Psalm 23 as his inspiration, Var — former lead singer of Pentateuch Movement band — has released his first solo project titled Jah Love.

“People know me from my work with Pentateuch Movement or Inna De Yard, but this is now me as a solo artiste, with my own production and label involved,” he informed.

Co-produced on the singer's Hillsman Records imprint and Supow label, Jah Love was released on all digital platforms on May 3. The acoustic ditty features Shaquir McQueen on guitar.

“Hillsman Records is me and my cousin, Shaquir, who plays the guitar on Jah Love,” he said.

Supow is operated by Patrice Bart-Williams, a Sierra Leonean-German singer-songwriter/music producer.

“We have a very good partnership over the years; and we give thanks for the support,” said the singer.

Var, given name Kevor Williams, got his break with Pentateuch Movement. He carried the outfit on its debut set The Genesis (2012) and four years later on the EP Chapter V.

In 2017, Var recorded Crime on reggae collective Inna De Yard's album Soul of Jamaica. That paved the way for a solo career.

When he is not pursuing his solo endeavours, Var is a touring guest with Inna De Yard, with whom he has performed at numerous festivals across Europe and the United States.
