Aleighcia Scott

Mar 16, 2024

6:00pm – 6:40pm CT

International Day Stage

Aleighcia Scott is one of reggae music’s brightest stars. Born to a Welsh mother and a Jamaican father, she has absorbed the passion and prowess of both nations, becoming an internationally acclaimed artist who lights up studio booths and stages around the world.
In 2023, Aleighcia released her debut album, Windrush Baby, a collaboration with renowned sound system selector and producer Rory Stonelove.
Aleighcia enjoys strong radio support from David Rodigan Seani B, DJ Target, Craig Charles, Ras Kwame and Tom Robinson. She’s even branched out into TV and Radio presenting herself, and hosts her own regular show on BBC Wales. In yet another historic move, Aleighcia now deputises for the legendary David Rodigan’s BBC1Xtra show.
Aleighcia has toured the UK, tearing down the place at Glastonbury, Latitude and Boomtown festivals. She has performed in Jamaica at Kingston’s atmospheric Dub Club, at Big Yard Studio (for BBC 1Xtra) and on the legendary King Jammy’s sound system.
Aleighcia Scott is one of those rare artists whose every move feels fresh – yet is likely to be with us musically for a very long time.
