Reggae Jam 2022 - Teacha Dee

Damion Darrel Warren (Born 21 September1980, Westmoreland/Jamaica) best known as Teacha Dee, is a Jamaican Reggae singer and former Secondary Educator with an international music career spanning over 15 years. He is known for songs such as "Smoke and Fly", "Rastafari Way", "Jah Jah is Calling", "Party Day", "Long Day", "Reggae Souljahs", and "Smuggling Weed" just to name a few. His stage name was derived from the Jamaican Creole for "Teacher" and a shortening of his nickname "Deemus".
Warren was a full-time employee with the Ministry of Education Youth and Culture in Jamaica when he recorded his first three popular songs for European producers. He continued to manage both careers from 2005 until 2012. He made efforts to hide his first two hit songs (Smoke and Fly) and (Smuggling Weed), from the Jamaican music industry and the Jamaican government, so as not to jeopardize his position in Education. This resulted his noticeable absence from the Jamaican and adjoining English markets earlier in his career.
The popularity of Teacha Dee’s early singles resulted in his first successful European clubtour in 2011 with him appearing on Reggae Jam, Germany as a surprize guest. Due to a rising demand for his appearances in 2012, Warren ended his teaching career to pursue entertainment internationally.
Since his appearance in 2011, Teacha Dee has appeared on Reggae Jam live stage 4 times and has performed on many reggae festivals in France, Austria, Switzerland, Germany, Denmark, and Hungary. He has also embarked on mini club tours across Holland, Belgium, Austria, Italy and as far south as Greece and as far north as Scandinavia.
In 2019 Teacha Dee embarked on his first mini world tour, from Europe into Central America, dubbed the Red Jacket Tour, with appearances in Germany, Spain, France, Mexico and Switzerland. The Mexican leg of the tour lasted an entire month, culminating in a major festival in Puerto Vallarta and several television and radio appearances across San Francisco Nayarit, and Guadalajara.
From Teacha Dee’s extensive discography, "Party Day" reached number one in Germany’s official Reggae and Dancehall Charts in 2014, on two separate occasions. "Concrete Grave" was listed in the top 100 reggae songs of 2016 in Romania. "Smoke and Fly", his first hit, was named one of the top marijuana songs of all times. It was featured in a marijuana documentary along with "One Thing About Herbs", both taken from his debut album "Reggae Souljahs: Beating Babylon with music" released in 2012.
His sophomore album titled "Rastafari Way" released in 2017, was voted 5th best national album in Germany, was ranked 2nd best reggae album for 2017 in Holland and charted at number 4 in Hungary. The title track "Rastafari Way", spent 14 days on Beatport’s top 100 Reggae/Dub charts, peaking at 44.
In 2021, "Rastafari Way" made modern roots reggae history, by becoming the first music placement in the 25th multi-award winning action thriller, and Daniel Craig’s final James Bond Film, No Time To Die. During this time, Teacha Dee attended two separate red carpet events and performed "Rastafari Way" live at the red carpet movie premiere held in Frankenthal, Germany. He also appeared with Sam Gilly on VERA, a famous entertainment talk show in Austria hosted by Vera Russwurm on ORF 2 to speak about Rastafari Way and James Bond.
In December 2021, Teacha Dee released his third studio album and first solo project titled "Time Machine". This album has 17 tracks, most of which were produced by Sam Gilly from the Austrian reggae production label, House Of Riddim.
For more than a decade, Teacha Dee has been reviewed as one of the best live performers currently touring Europe in the modern roots reggae category. With a discography consisting of deep melodious spiritual messages with extremely catchy punchlines, audiences and promoters worldwide have never been disappointed.
