Richie Spice has emerged as one of the most talented reggae artists of the 21st century. Born in 1971 in St. Andrew, Kingston, Spice comes from a strong musical family, including brothers Pliers (Chaka Demus and Pliers) and Spanner Banner (also on the Fifth Element label). In 2000 Spice released his debut album, Universal, on Heartbeat Records. He spent the next few years touring and recording singles, until meeting Devon Wheatley, the CEO of Fifth Element Records, who signed him onto the label. In 2004 “Spice In Your Life” was released, with the album, and Spice himself receiving widespread acclaim throughout the world, among critics and dancehalls alike. Spice’s powerful and conscious lyrics and themes reflect his and Fifth Element’s beliefs, and “…aim directly at the upliftment of our youths, who will represent the generations to come”.

“…growing up I always look out there in the world at the changes going on – gun violence, the youths out there on the street hungry, cannot find food, cannot go to school, the whole world war that’s going on. Physically, spiritually, the whole meditation come upon the universe so we just put all of those things together and put the words together to speak of things that are going on around us” – Richie Spice.
