NOMADDZ

BIOGRAPHY
The NoMaddz is an eclectic band from Kingston, Jamaica heavily influenced by their dub poetry and theatrical background. Chris Blackwell, the founder of Island Records, widely credited for discovering Bob Marley told Rolling Stone Magazine "there's a band called the No-Maddz who are more like theater than a group. They're actors. It's this whole audio-visual kind of thing. It's different. But they're really good, really talented and really smart."

The members are recipients of the Jamaican Prime Minister's Youth Award for excellence, the highest state award for youths in the country. They first emerged on Jamaica's musical landscape in 2010 with 'The Trod Live' concert series and the resulting live album recorded around Kingston.

An endorsement deal with Puma in 2011 led to a series of TV commercials featuring the NoMaddz, Usain Bolt and their irresistible track "Puko Poo". The ads aired on several international networks including MTV and VH1 and were also played in every Footlocker and Puma store worldwide.

Sheldon Shepherd and Everaldo "Evie" Creary, the NoMaddz co-leaders/co-founders are both successful actors. Both were featured in "Better Mus' Come" a film for which Shepherd won the Best Actor award at the American Black Film Festival (ABFF) in 2012. Creary's other appearances include the recurring role of 'Elwood' in the 2010 British TV drama, Small Island (BBC).

Their debut studio album "Sly & Robbie presents No-Maddz" (2015) was well received by fans and critics alike. Saxon Baird of MTV Iggy described the album as "a first-rate debut from a band that seems poised to offer great things to come." Standout tracks from their debut include "Shottas" and "Better Mus Come".

NoMaddz live performance is an experience beyond explanation; their exceptionally unique mix of music, theater and fashion continues to captivate audiences worldwide. They received a perfect score in the annual Jamaica Cultural Development Commission's performance arts festival. The NoMaddz has toured extensively throughout Europe, Asia and the Americas with appearances on major festivals such as Rhur Festival (Germany), Reggae Geel (Belgium), Daegu Festival (Korea), Sierra Nevada World Music Festival (California, USA) and Irie Jamboree (New York, USA).
