WAYNE JOBSON’s “ALTER-NATIVE”
Rockin' Reggae Radio Show
Born in Jamaica and raised in the hills of St. Ann, near Bob Marley’s birthplace “Nine Mile”, Wayne Jobson grew close ties to both reggae music and the Marley family. His cousin Diki Jobson founded Island Records with Chris Blackwell and managed Bob Marley and the Wailers. Furthering this connection, another cousin, Diane Jobson, was Marley’s attorney. With those roots firmly planted, young Wayne studied at Kings College in London and received a Master of Laws in Entertainment Law.
Since then, he has become a multi-platinum, Grammy winning producer for artists like “No Doubt” and just produced Keith Richards’ “Wingless Angels” CD, released in September 2010. He has re-mixed Bush and Jason Mraz and wrote songs for Sugar Ray and Jimmy Buffet. He has produced television like “Behind the Music” for VH1, music for award-winning films like Adam Sandler’s “50 First Dates”; the Alec Baldwin/Meg Ryan “Prelude To a Kiss”; and Disney’s “Cool Runnings”.
