More Info

Gentleman, real name Otto Tillman, grew up in Germany. Neither Rasta nor of Jamaican origin, he did not seem predestined to become the most talented of European reggae artists. Yet this is the challenge taken up by this extraordinary artist, who understood and deeply feels all the reggae fundamentals.

It was at the age of 17 that Tillman left for a trip to Jamaica, he was immediately fascinated by its culture, its language and its iconic music: reggae. Already familiar with classics like those of Dennis Brown, Peter Tosh and Bob Marley, Gentleman also discovers more contemporary artists like Sizzla and Anthony B.

From his first album "Trodin On" released in 95, through "Leave Us Alone", "Journey to Jah", "Confidence", "Another Intensity", "Diversity" to the excellent "Blaue Stunde" in 2020, Gentleman has continued to step up. A follower of a conscious and energetic dancehall, he demonstrated his writing and vocal talents, performing from traditional roots reggae to more soul, more hip-hop or ragga hybrid tracks.

In more than 20 years of career, Gentleman has also surrounded himself with talented musicians and legendary artists. He has forged strong links and multiplied collaborations throughout his career with artists such as Capleton, Junior Kelly, Ras Shiloh, Anthony B, Barrington Levy or even Ky-Mani Marley with whom he released the album "Conversations" in 2016 .

The youth who impressed the critical Jamaican audience with his skillful use of Patois in the 90ies and made the code accessible for the German massive has grown into a man who successfully built his empire. After extensive touring for MTV Unplugged and his "best of" compilation The Selection, he obviously took a step back, climbed a lonely mountain and meditated on his journey.

The outcome of this contemplation is a different take on his art. Less globe-trotting and adventures, more quality time spent with family, friends and colleagues; less global subjects, more personal ones; less Patois, more... German! In a surprising move, Gentleman's new album Blaue Stunde ("blue hour") was announced as his first ever work written and presented in his mother tongue. Blaue Stunde is indeed both a wonderful comeback and a new beginning for Gentleman, a successful experiment of combining his German roots with his artistic output.

Gentleman has traveled the four corners of the globe and thrills thousands of fans at each of his concerts.

His extremely polished concerts have gained international recognition and are, by everyone's opinion, spectacular. Because Gentleman has a sense of the show, he even went so far as to present a concert accompanied by a symphony orchestra. Ultra prolific, recognized by his peers and acclaimes by his fans, Gentleman has established himself on the world stage as a benchmark of the genre with his exceptional voice and unfailing energy.

Accompanied on the road by his team of live experts and his band "The Soulnation", he finally comeback to French stages in 2022!
