FEECHA: HIS STORY


Highah Seekah is a talented writer/songwriter and recording artiste, specializing in Reggae music, that is heartfelt, shaped by an infusion of being Jamaican born-and-raised 'til 12, speckled with an American experience from then on, blended together in spiritual awareness and encapsulated with the influence of the RasTafari movement.


Richard Harvey, the name given to him at birth, was born in Savanna-La-Mar, Westmoreland, Jamaica on August 6, 1980; his birthday is the island nation's Independence Day. He lived in the towns of Burnt Savanna and Frome his first 12 years, some of which were spent in church singing on a local church’s youth choir. His parents migrated the family to Fort Lauderdale, Florida in 1993.


He wrote his first song in 1997, as an 11th grader; junior year; Piper High School; Sunrise, south Florida - on the outskirts of Fort Lauderdale. While in high school, he sang on the schools Chorus choir as a baritone. The next eight years, he would assiduously compose, record and practice; tuning and improving his talent, cultivating his passion, developing his vocal ability and skill. After reading Destruction Of Black Civilization, his name comes into his consciousness [Highah Seekah]; he accepts and adopts this name in 2005, the same year he performs for the first time, in public - open mic night at Banana Boat in Lauderhill.


Highah Seekah later gains notice by Reggae Festival Guide and is featured in the 2007 issue as ‘Reggae Artist On The Rise.'
