Andre Johnson (born 1970), better known by his stage name Jah Mason, also known as Iron Mason and Fire Mason, is a reggae singer/deejay from Jamaica, active as a recording artist since 1991.
Jah Mason ranks as one of the highest rated young DJs to emerge from the island of Jamaica, scoring number one hits and continuing to reach the top with My Princess Gone and Lion Look. With his debut album Keep Your Joy: (Ghetto Technology Label) kicking off in early 2002 and swiftly followed up by Unlimited (Reggae Vibes Label), there is no stopping this prolific young DJ. His uplifting voice is an answer to the people's cry for more positivity in Dancehall and Reggae music today.
He was born in the tribe Gad, in the parish of Manchester, Jamaica. As a child he adopted the pet name Perry Mason, due to his ability to pacify situations amongst peers in his neighborhood. His career began under the guidance of reggae superstar Junior Reid, who produced and released Mason's first song Selassie I Call We, under the name Perry Mason. Soon after him and his good friend Jah Cure linked with Capleton and David House, which later inspired him to change his name from Perry Mason to Jah Mason. From this point he began work for Jah as the Builder for Righteousness, vowing that every word he sang would be a brick laid for the house of Righteousness.
Touching many parts of the Caribbean, Europe, the U.K. and Japan, Jah Mason continues to utilize his talented voice worldwide. Currently Jah Mason continues collaborations with top-rated Jamaican producers
