Wesli is a Haitian-born reggae artist and producer based in Montreal, Canada. He has been making music for over two decades, and has established himself as a leader in the Canadian reggae scene.
Wesli grew up in a musical family in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. He was exposed to the sounds of reggae, ska, and other Caribbean music styles at a young age. At the age of thirteen, he began to learn to play the guitar and soon began writing his own songs. After graduating high school, he moved to Montreal and began performing at local clubs and bars.
In 2002, Wesli released his debut album, “Gwa-Yo”, which received critical acclaim in the Canadian reggae scene. The album was nominated for a Juno Award, Canada’s highest music honour, and was featured on major radio stations. He also garnered attention for his live performances, often accompanied by a full band. The following year, Wesli released his second album, “Mizik Pou Fanm”, which featured his signature blend of reggae, dancehall, and hip-hop. The album was a commercial success, spawning several hits and receiving a nomination for World Music Album of the Year at the Canadian Music Awards.
Since then, Wesli has released a string of albums and EPs, collaborating with some of Canada’s top reggae and dancehall artists. He has also become a sought-after producer, working with artists such as Tanya Stephens, Jah Cutta, and Chyna Whyne. His work has been featured on television and film soundtracks, and he has toured extensively in Canada, the United States, and Europe.
Wesli’s music is a unique blend of Caribbean, African, and North American influences, and he has become known for his positive, uplifting lyrics and catchy melodies. His goal is to spread a message of love, peace, and unity, and to bring people together through music. He hopes to inspire his listeners to make a positive change in their lives and in their communities.
