​Born in Manchester, and raised in Jamaica, Exco Levi quickly took hold of the Canadian reggae scene after emigrating in 2005. He has won 5 JUNO awards and has performed at the City’s signature venue, The Rose, for many occasions including A Tribute To The Legends of Reggae, The Caribbean Music and Entertainment Awards, and during his own album launch for 2018’s Narrative.

His songs, recorded in his home studio in Brampton, have helped forge an entirely new style of music and rhythm that is revolutionary, fiery, scathing, loving and stinging. The City of Brampton is proud to celebrate Exco Levi on the Arts Walk of Fame.
