Lojah describes his eclectic sound as Creolized Roots Music, a style deeply influenced by Caribbean rhythms, Celtic melodies, and Southern American blues. He has played his music from the Gulf of Mexico to Monterey Bay, and he is currently performing acoustic sets along the Gulf Coast. In 2013 Lojah released Pub Songs on Palafox, a four-song, lo-fi, EP recorded in the raw as a live-air production that captures the energy and sound of a Lojah solo performance as executed while busking downtown in competition with the various sounds of a bustling city street. Between 1999 and 2008 Lojah wrote with, managed, produced, and performed with the Grammy nominated Native American rapper Shadowyze. His song “Pedigree” was featured on the 2001 SOAR™ release “Spirit Warrior” and received radio play throughout North America. It was also featured at Reggae on the River between 2001 and 2003.

The 2006 dancehall single “Flow” charted in the Top 50 on Dixie Dance Kings Pop Urban Ads, winning a Listener’s Choice Award. His song “Alone by the Sea” won multiple awards including Reggae Song of the Day, and Best Male Vocals, and Best Mood in Reggae in May 2007. Lojah was born as Jay Moody to a large, Cheroenhaka (Nottoway)/Creek Indian and Irish family from Pensacola, Florida. Raised in a Navy family, he was raised in multiple maritime communities including New Orleans, Maryland, and California's Bay Area, while always returning to his home in Florida. Being brought up on the music of Bob Marley, the Ramones, and Bob Dylan heavily influenced the budding musician.

He also counts such bands as the Pogues, the Dogs D’amour, Ben Harper, Bill Miller, the Clancy Brothers, and Son House as significant influences. Jay cut his musical teeth busking on city streets, beaches and around campfires. Over the years he has played folk, punk rock, reggae and even worked in hip-hop music. Lojah is a dedicated adherent to, and traditional singer in a Muskogee Creek Stomp Dance community located on the Poarch Creek Indian reservation, and he is currently an anthropology instructor at the University of West Florida.

His music is immersed in social realism, and arcane insight woven together with tongue-in-cheek witticism and a festive vibe. He encourages a life in tune with the natural world while celebrating the finer points of creation. Read more on Last.fm.
