Singer Autarchii Hails The ‘Black Beauty’
“ Black Beauty is more than just a song, it is rather an allegory of African love, the love that the Eurocentric media likes to hide. This song highlights the powers of a woman with melanin, the more she embraces her African identity, the more attractive she becomes. The ultimate aim is to unite the African family leading to true empowerment.”
Music as a Gateway to Activism
“Music is community service in the form of melodies,” so says Jermaine Joseph, better known as “Autarchii”. How simple yet profound! "Musicians are the guardians of the Earth and their purpose should be to uplift the community and the world at large,” said Autarchii.

Join reggae artist Autarchii and Junior of 'I Never Knew Tv' as they conduct reasonings with the purposes of informing, educating, and inspiring the masses.
In the golden era of Reggae, it was said that the music reflected strong messages of Rastafari and was the sound of the ghetto, as it, often referenced the dilapidation of the sufferer’s environment. Being the son of Veteran Recording Artist Donovan Joseph and the cousin to the crown prince of Reggae Dennis Brown, Autarchii, is adamant about continuing the mission of Reggae’s golden era. His lyrics and melodies seem to be fiery and educational at the same time. He has had the pleasure to be a mentee of the late legendary Wayne ‘Sleng Teng’ Smith, who taught him many ins and outs of the music Industry at the tender age of 17. The name ‘Autarchii’ is a depiction of ‘autarchy,’ which means absolute rule or power. It was officially placed on him by his cousin, who believed that his revolutionary approach to music would make him inextinguishable.
2017 saw Autarchii releasing his debut album entitled ‘Land of the Free’, which was distributed by VPAL Music. Reggae Vibes Magazine, a Netherlands based Magazine said “listening to Autarchii’s first full-fledged album is a mind-blowing experience”.
The prowess of this ever growing artist led him to open concerts for numerous amount of Veterans such as: Horace Andy, Inner Circle, Anthony B and The Mighty Diamonds. However, he is not just an artist but a black revolutionary who uses his music to develop the community. Autarchii is the founder of the Youths Today Scholarship and also “Entrepreneurship Meets Live Music”, which is an event designed to boost self reliance among black youths.
While on a 2 week promotional tour of Canada to promote his debut album, Autarchii received an award from Reggae Xclusive Magazine, acknowledging him as the “New Voice in Reggae.” Fresh from his Fall 2019 tour in Kenya, Autarchii continued workING on his EP entitled 'Disrupting the Status Quo', which was released on his Red A Red Music Group Label in November 2021 and Distributed by Tuff Gong International.
