Matthew Greenidge - Jah Rules Over All

Black-Am-I (@blackamI1)Joins I-Wayne on U.S. I&I Tour This Fall

The newest recruit on the Marley-owned Ghetto Youths International label Black-Am-I teams up with I Wayne, one of today's most pivotal figures in roots reggae, on the I&I Tour that spans over 30 cities across the United States throughout October and November 2014.

In Rastafarian culture, I&I represents the oneness between the human and the divine, so the title only seemed fitting for two of Jamaica's hottest roots reggae artists who are spreading the conscious movement. This past summer, the culturally-inclined reggae singjay performed as one of the opening acts for Damian Marley, performing at large scale music events such as the California Roots Music and Arts Festival in Monterey, CA.  

Along with embarking on the I & I U.S. Tour 2014, Black-Am-I will perform on Oct 20 with Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley, Stephen "Ragga" Marley, Julian Marley, Shaggy, Sean Paul, Bounty Killer, Jah Cure, Busy Signal, Etana, Wayne Marshall, Jo Mersa, Christopher Ellis and more on the Welcome to Jamrock Reggae Cruise. Black-Am-I recently dropped his new single "In The Ghetto," which will be available on the upcoming compilation Ghetto Youths International Presents Set Up Shop Volume 2. 



BLACK-AM-I

Black-Am-I was born Owen Davis on Nov. 17, 1984 in Nine Mile, JA, the birthplace of reggae icon Bob Marley. In honor of Robert Nesta Marley, Black-Am-I received the nickname I-Nesta from his father. He began writing lyrics at age 16 and recorded his first demo CD in 2005. He derived his moniker from his song “Black-Am-I” the first track he recorded for Damian and Ghetto Youths International. 

The song promotes black pride, solidarity and self-determination. “The song says that I am black and I won’t be doing certain things like bleaching my skin; and I will stick to my roots and culture,” said Black-Am-I. Othernotable tracks by Black-Am-I include “Modern Day Freedom” and “Sound System.” His influences include Bob Marley, Damian Marley as well as fiery roots reggae artists like Tarrus Riley Sizzla Kolonji, Jah Mason and Jah Cure.

Lady Genius Remake Emeli Sande’s "Suitcase"

Multi-talented Reggae singer Lady Genius is ready to take her place in the spotlight. The Clarendon born singer is currently enjoying much attention with a cover of Scottish recording artiste Emeli Sande’s song called Suitcase.

The single which was produced and released by Move Up Records in August has been receiving heavy rotation on a number of radio stations both locally and abroad. “Suitcase is a song I love dearly, Emeli Sande is an incredible writer and great singer. I really admire her work a lot. I recorded Suitcase in 2013 when I was in the states, that version had a more R&B sound.

But in August I re-recorded it because I wanted to give a nice Reggae lovers rock vibe. It turns that I made the right choice, so far the response to this version of the song has been great,” said the artiste.  

Lady Genius recently released a supporting music video for Suitcase which features cameo appearances from former Shocking Vibes member Silver Cat and upcoming actress Kat Eye. The video was filmed under the direction of Mark Edwards of Never Mind Productions at various locations in Clarendon including Twin Palm Estates. “We’ve just released the video, it’s a really nice video, and I think it’s going to help to push the song further.” 

Prior to releasing suitcase Lady Genius released a handful of singles including a cover of Rihanna’s Stay and a cover of Toni Braxton & Baby Face’s Hurt You which was done in tandem with veteran Reggae singer Anthony Malvo. 

The multitalented singer who is also a professional model and radio host is getting ready to release another single before the end of the month. “Before the end of the month I’m going to release a follow up single to Suitcase. It’s a nice Dancehall flavored track called Nah Stop Try. I recorded this song for a label called Push Hitz Record in New York,” said Lady Genius.

AUDIO: New Religion - Beenie Man (@KingBeenieMan) feat. RichThane @KamauMusic

"New Religion", the unique single and recent prospective conquest of the music world by the "King of The Dancehall", Beenie Man, featuring the rising and outstanding Pop/R&B American singer, songwriter and guitarist, Rich Thane.

This exclusive track will undoubtedly captivate a wide range of listeners due to its distinctive and melodious blend of a broad spectra of music styles and lyrics which commence with a traditional chorus that is succeeded by crystal clear contemporary instrumentals, bass vocals and deejaying in bold and brief lyrics comprised of natural, earthy Jamaican dialect in a highly expressive tone that are characteristic of Beenie Man and the sharply contrasting alluring, silky and rich tenor of RichThane which exudes lyrics in soft adult contemporary music that evoke tenderness, sincerity, harmony and euphoria as well as the refrains, "Loving you is my religion" and "Believe in me."  

Rich Thane, born (DOB) as Richard Hue, resides in South Florida. While growing up in the 90's, he was inspired by Ryan Cabrera, Craig David and David Gray. His music is a fusion of pop, R&B and periodically, folk with lyrical content enhanced by his translucent tenor which arouses strong positive emotions. He has a similar style to Bruno Mars with his own distinct flavour. 

The launching pad for New Religion, an eclectic single, was laid by the gifted and consummate producers, Tariq Kamau "Nashi" Smith and Xavier "Bless X" Prendergast of Kamau Music who are also the executive producers of "Ghetto Born", the extraordinary 13-track Jah Vinci album mainly based on social issues in which Beenie Man is featured in "Don of all Dons(Radio)", the track that focuses on both artists' significant achievements. 

The excellent and noteworthy executive producer of this track, Khabir Bonner of Grillaras Production, recently completed the production of "Ghetto Born" and the Beenie Man single, "Thug Love" featuring CeCile, the video for which has already been debuted on BET networks. Zojak World Wide is the co-label/distributor of "New Religion", Thug Love and "Ghetto Born." 

Thus, "New Religion" is poised to rapidly ascend the charts worldwide to become another sensational hit single, propelling the very talented Rich Thane to international recognition and prominence alongside Beenie Man, the phenomenal and renowned reggae fusion artist who has had a multitude of well-known hits. "New Religion", a remix of Beenie Man's "One and Only" which was released in early September that incorporates significant musical and lyrical content from Rich Thane, is out now and available on Itunes iTunes and all major digital distribution platforms.

Kalado (@OfficialKalado) Ready To Roll Into Antigua And Boston

Dancehall artiste Kalado is definitely on the move this year, and as the last quarter of 2014 sets in, the “Love The Life You Live” singjay is upping the ante in his quest to end the year on a dramatic musical high.

Keeping his eyes firmly focused on the prize, the entertainer who has already secured a number one hit with “Personally”, has no intention of resting on his laurels.

For him, it’s all about preparing for the next show, putting out another song or just generally working on his craft.

The hard-working entertainer recently released what is poised to be another monster hit, the Dre Day-produced “Sex Compliment”, and this is just one of the many songs that he will use to entertain fans in Antigua on Saturday night.  

Scheduled to be held at the popular Millers By The Sea venue on the island, Kalado will be joined by dancehall diva Tifa, in a concert that is being promoted as “Action Pack”. Although no stranger to the Caribbean, this will be Kalado’s official breakout Antigua show and he is rubbing his palms together in anticipation. “Antiguans are so special and I just love their accent,” Kalado revealed. 

He continued, “I can’t wait to perform for my fans there. My management team has been in constant communication with the promoters … they are rolling out the red carpet and we are ready to take the walk and give it our best, like we always do,” the “Take A Ride” artiste declared, adding that he has something special just for his Antiguan fans. 

Then, without skipping much of a beat, the singjay who has arguably made the most strides for 2014 will head to Boston, Massachusetts, for his debut solo US performance the following weekend. Kalado is tipped to bring his special vibes to the concert as the headline act, and he is eager to roll out the goodies from his ever-increasing catalogue of hardcore and reality-laced dancehall songs. Among them will be: “Love The Life You Live”, “Living The Life”, “House Party”, “Rave Till Sunlight”, “Personally”, “Body Nuh Dead”, “Make Me Feel”, “Mi Money Good”, “Paper Trail” “Step Out”, “Sad Streets”, “Pree Money”, “Pay Dem No Mind” and “Take A Ride”. 

“Although this is my real US debut, I feel no pressure, because I will be among the people who have helped to put me where I am today. My US fan base is extremely strong and I feel the love flowing already. This is going to be a great show,” Kalado asserted. The venue of choice in Boston is Kay’s Oasis and the event takes its name from one of the artiste’s massive hits, “Good Good Bring Life”.
