Sevad is a Reggae Fusion artist from Frankfurt, Germany. Born Steven Davis in 1977 in Kingston, Jamaica, he rose to prominence with the single Addicted:[1]. Since then, he has released various albums and EPs, and is known for his style of merging genres while delivering conscious, socio-political lyrics.

Early Life[edit]

Sevad was born in 1977 in Jamaica and raised by his mother, Margaret Davis. His biography states[2] that:

Margaret raised Sevad on her own – and tried to give her son a comfortable life. But poverty was never to far from the family’s door. Yet still, Margaret was a committed church-goer, being the leader of her local choir. It was this talent that mother passed onto son – teaching Sevad how to sing and play the piano. He calls her his “musical inspiration at home”. His early years were filled with music. His mother was a fan of Soul, and Sevad grew up with the sounds of Sam Cooke, Nina Simone, Marvin Gaye and everything Motown.

He said in an interview in 2018 that part of the reason he began to sing was to overcome a severe stutter.[3] While living in Jamaica, Sevad integrated himself into the Reggae community and cites Garnett Silk as one of his inspirations, saying he often attended his shows.[2] Sevad said in an interview in 2018 that his faith in God is a large part of his music. He cited his father's influence as a pastor meant he "grew up in Christianity... reading the Bible". Sevad doesn't follow any set religion, but says he "believes in God, but doesn't believe in religion... God is universal, he's not in one place, in all of us".[3]


Sevad became lead singer of Jamaica's Step By Step Band in 2001,[4] where he performed across the island including at the Rebel Salute festival. He then founded his own label, Sevad Music House Records which still exists to this day.[5] Sevad's first single, Addicted, attracted over 50,000 YouTube views[1] and was premiered on Television Jamaica's Entertainment Report. It was from his debut album Everyday Is Like Valentine, released in 2014.[6]. In 2017, he moved to Germany and the album Locked Up Abroad followed in 2018.

In 2019, Sevad Music House Records released the Zion's King Riddim.[7] It featured prominent Reggae and Dancehall artists including Christopher Martin, Ginjah and Jah Mason. The album Black Man's Government and EP The Message were both released in 2020. 2022 saw Sevad release his fourth full album, The Revolution. The lead single Freedom had a video with contributions from fans and artists from around the world.[8]

His latest release was the EP Melodies, in August 2022. It was a collaboration with Austrian production outfit House of Riddim.[9] The lead single, Out of Babylon, received wider airplay than some of his previous releases. The video was picked up by music website Reggaeville.[10] UK-based music website Pauzeradio wrote[11]

Melodies is a powerful and engaging piece of work from Sevad and House of Riddim. It stands in contrast to the former’s earlier work, due to the focus being less on the conscious and more on the emotive. But that’s of no concern, because what the team has constructed is a highly accomplished potted look at Sevad’s potential as an artist – and it is a complete success all round. One of the stand-out EP’s of 2022.

He has often performed live as a solo artist, including appearances at Reggae Jam in 2018,[12] a European tour[13] and sharing the stage with Jamaican Reggae artist Anthony B.[14]
