Christian Lahodynsky (born January 10), better known by his stage name Deliman, is an Austrian reggae singer/songwriter who was born in Doebling, Vienna, Austria. He is established as one of Austria's best and most ambitious reggae artists.

Early life/origins

He was born in Nussdorf, suburbs in the 19th District of Vienna "Doebling". His father worked for an Austrian newspaper, Die Presse, as a journalist. Due to his father's job, he spent the first six year of his life living in Belgium from 1989 - 1995. Afterwards, his family moved back to Austria, where he first encountered reggae music and developed his passion for the reggae culture. His parents had a large collection of records, including a reggae section.

He grew up listening to famous artists including Bob Marley, Black Uhuru, Steel Pulse, Ini Kamoze, Mighty Diamonds, Third World (band), Dennis Brown, Tony Tuff and Gregory Isaacs.

He met a backing band called The Fireman Crew from Linz, Austria and began working on live performances. In February 2010, Deliman and The Fireman Crew were nominated for the Austrian Newcomer Award 2010. In June, they won the Austrian/Swiss Reggae Contest gaining the opportunity to perform at the Rototom Sunsplash in 2010.
