Last updated: June 2016

SGT REMO - PROFILE:

Singer: Sgt Remo
Location: San Antonio, Texas, US
Genre: Reggae
Influences: Supercat, Buju Banton, Luciano, Barrington Levy

Biography:
Sgt. Remo, born Sergio Ortiz, is a Reggae singer and recording artist born in Mexican-American border city of Juarez, Mexico.

Early Years
He is the youngest child in a family of 3 children. He was raised by his mother in the city of Juarez, Mexico until the family immigrated to El Paso, TX just across the border into the U.S in 1986. From a young age he began singing and entering singing competitions. After immigrating to the U.S. he stayed away from singing and focused on adjusting to the cultural changes of his new community.
He began listening to Reggae Dancehall music in the late 80’s and was heavily influenced by the blend of hip hop and Reggae that was prevalent during this time into the early 90’s. Jamaican artists such as Supercat, Barrington Levy, Buju Banton, Shabba Ranks, as well as Panamanian Reggae artist El General were his biggest influences during these formative years.

Musical Career 

Empire Soundz
While living in Corpus Christi, TX Sgt. Remo began working with Guyanese born Ali and Jamaican born Mistah Blaze. Ali began his musical career as an aspiring selector in his hometown of Berbice, Guyana. Mistah Blaze began singing and chatting from an early age. The three became the Empire Soundz Crew. They collaborated for several years and recorded a large collection of music in a short period of time under the Empire Soundz Crew. They were heavily rotated in mixtape format and received positive feedback. However, none of these early songs were ever officially released.


The New Mexico Experience
In 2004 Sgt. Remo ended up in Albuquerque, NM where he began working with German/New Mexican sound system owner Don Martin, who would later become like a mentor to him. Don Martin and his Brotherhood Sound System ran a steady session at Burt's Tiki Lounge in Albuquerque during ‘05. At Burt’s Tiki Lounge Remo performed his Empire Soundz songs taking turns with fellow artist Mister Kali. In 2007 Sgt. Remo performed with Mr. Kali at the Santa Fe Musik Festival. This was Remo’s first experience on a festival scale.

In late ‘07 and early ‘08 Sgt. Remo & Mister Kali performed regularly in the southwest and built a solid fan base which led to many successful shows culminating with a spring tour with Original General Smiley (from hall of fame duo "Michigan & Smiley"). On this tour they performed in various cities in Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, and Utah. In 2010 Sgt. Remo was featured in Mister Kali's debut album "Step Fast" with the song "Loving Loving," a remake of an earlier Sgt. Remo Empire Soundz combination tune. This version of "Loving Loving" was Sgt. Remo's first official release.

Jah Yutes Entertainment
In 2009 he relocated to San Diego, CA. Sgt. Remo continued to perform various shows in the fertile Reggae lands of California working with TRC Sound System (San Diego) and Majestik Sounds (San Luis Obispo). After moving to Houston, TX in 2011 Sgt. Remo formed the label Jah Yutes Entertainment (JYE) and worked with Ceremony Studios and Dread I Arts to release the album "Reggae SoulJahs Worldwide Vol. 1". This compilation album was the first project on the newly formed label and featured the music of General Smiley (Michigan & Smiley), Ken Serious (Flames Crew), Mister Kali, Sgt. Remo, and DJ Yahru El Guru. They promoted the album with the Reggae SoulJahs Worldwide Camouflage tour (a 12 city US tour in the summer of 2011 in the states of TX, NM, CO, NE, IL, WI, OH, MA, NY, VA).

Today & Tomorrow
In 2012 Sgt. Remo released his first solo EP entitled Life is for Living on the JYE label. This EP planted his music firmly on the global Reggae landscape. From this EP came out two very successful official videos titled No Man Stranded and Thunder & Lightning.
In January 2014 JYE released the well received Reggae SoulJahs Worldwide Vol. 2 album featuring music by artists like Gappy Ranks, Sgt. Remo, Nico D, Miriam Simone plus many more. Remo released an official video for the song Rastafari Way from Vol 2. 2014 was a busy year with performances in Japan, Mexico City, and a month long tour titled the 14 Parish Salute Tour with General Smiley, Mister Kali, and the Dub Gideon Band touching down in 18 U.S. cities.
In July Remo pre-released the first single I'm Free from the forthcoming album also releasing an official video for the single. October saw the release of the full length album Give Thanks for Life on JYE. Through the years Remo has released singles for various producers around the world cementing a strong presence in Mexico and Latin America.
