Rarely does an event take place that brings together powerful global forces and talents from all walks of life.
Reggae icon Robert Nesta “Bob” Marley was the force that brought international stars such as Ziggy Marley, Snoop Dogg, Rick Fox, Holly Robinson Peete, artist Neville Garrick (designer of Bob Marley’s album covers), producer Lee Jaffe, Ras Michael, Rocky Dawuni, MC Lyte and members of the Marley family together on April 17.
The LA premiere of the wildly anticipated “Marley” a film directed by Kevin McDonald, presented by Magnolia Pictures at the Dome at ArcLight in Hollywood, CA, was truly an historic event.
On April 17, the city of Los Angeles issued a Certificate of Recognition to the family of Bob Marley saluting the release of “Marley,” which was simultaneously released on Facebook, iTunes, On Demand and in theaters worldwide on April 20.

Koxxetic New Album And Tour
Koxx was born in Clarendon, Jamaica into a musical family. He spent his formative years surrounded by uncles, all of whom played the guitar and were singers in their own right. So it was not surprising when he started making his own guitars, trying to emulate this family tradition.
Upon entering high school he met Gerald Anderson, a music teacher, who saw his interest in wanting to learn an instrument. He started giving him the foundations of bass playing, and gave him his first bass guitar. This quickly bore fruit as Koxx’s bass playing became a regular part of school life. He managed to make a name for himself, representing his school on annual school festivals and performing at numerous concerts and school functions. He was voted and won a prize for best performance in music. With the collaboration of other upcoming musical talents the stage was now set, the new generation of Jamaican musicians was there and Koxx rose to the challenge.
Leaving high school, he followed a few friends to the Edna Manley School of the Performing Arts in Kingston, Jamaica. There he worked with Maurice Gordon, one of Jamaica’s top jazz guitarists. This opened his mind to a new world of musical ideas: Changing his life forever and it did not take long before he was working with artists such as Freddie McGregor, The Mighty Diamonds, members of the Heptones, Winston Jarrett and Max Romeo. Over time touring with these artist became more and more regular. This was the final stage of development: The real world of the music business. The university in which he has learnt and polished his skills, taking some thing away from each and every artist he has worked with, and making it his own.
In 2000, he moved to Paris, France. Searching for new challenges and motivation Koxx started composing and writing songs, encouraged by friends and family, found his true calling He has composed songs such as « It go so » (Pierpoljak), « Mama Earth » and «Cool Higher » with Yaniss Odua, « Golden Doudou » with Matinda, Chéché Sav » with MC Janik and Jocelyne Berouard. He has played so many bass lines with so many artists it’s hard to mention… As cofounder of « My Band » and bass player, koxx has worked with the poll of best artists France has got to offer Some of the artists include Pierpoljak, Neg Marron, Princesse Erika, Tonton David, Admiral T, Yaniss Odua, NTM, Daddy Nuttea, Daddy Mory, Mc Janik, Diams, Jacob Devarieux. In the meantime he has also worked with Jamaican atists, Tanya Stephens, Capleton, Junior Kelly, Derrick Morgan, Bushman, The Congoes and Jah Mason.
Koxx is indeed an original artist banked on years of experience in all aspects of the music business. A singer, songwriter, composer, musician extraordinary.

Jamaica Songstress Tanice Morrison on the Rise
Bruno Mars Just the Way You Are (Reggae Cover Jimi D)
Video Link: http://youtu.be/dwh2LKsGAVM
When VP Records heard Jimi D’s rendition of Bruno Mars’ “Just The Way You Are”, they could not resist licensing the song and adding it to their compilation. The one-drop beat undoubtedly transformed the pop hit sensation, garnering almost quarter of a million Youtube hits (collectively) in a few months of it’s release.
Jimi D (Christopher Chambers), with his distinctly smooth, soothing voice, has been the background vocalist who has helped to elevated many successful musicians to another level in their careers. Born August 25, in Kingston, Jamaica, music was always a natural part of Jimi D’s upbringing. As a child, his uncle, legendary reggae artist, Don Carlos, would frequently encourage him to sing “Dancing on the Ceiling” by Lionel Richie. Although this irritated Jimi D, his mannerly upbringing would not allow him to complain. Instead, he willingly complied with his uncle’s wishes, not knowing he was secretly exploring his artistic abilities.
Jimi D’s childhood desire was to become a doctor, but this desire eventually became overshadowed by his innate musical abilities. At the age of twelve, Jimi D and his friend’s, Marquis Henry and Jervell Creory, formed a group. Their first song, composed by Jimi D, entitled “Baby” was a hit amongst their peers. Yet the opportunity to launch his musical career did not manifest itself. Still, he remained fervent to his dreams, constantly rehearsing and writing.
Whilst a part of a group called BKS, Jimi D came close to being signed to Def Jam Records. But the group lacked maturity and did not succeed. After years of singing background vocals and gaining a deeper respect for the music industry, the opportune time presented itself to launch his long awaited solo career under the artiste name, Jimi D, with the assistance of his uncle, Don Carlo, who equipped him with the skills and network he needed.
To date Jimi D has shared the stage with well-known artists such as Freddie McGregor, Eeka Mouse, Andrew Tosh, Marcia Griffiths, Gregory Isaacs and Shaddon Tucker to name just a few. In 2012 Jimi will embark on a US tour to promote his forthcoming single releases, which is expected to have collaborations with well-known Jamaican artistes. Jimi D is also preparing for the launch of his untitled debut album, something he hopes will reflect not only his authentic Jamaican origins, but also incorporate some elements of music that has influenced him over the years such as pop and R&B.

Bio- Robert "Marky" Sutherland
If there is one word that best describes Reggae singer, song-writer and guitarist, Robert Sutherland, it would be ‘determined’.
A talented football player of whom great things were expected, Robert instead heeded the call of music, and in the process has richly enhancing the output of the genre called reggae.
Undaunted by obstacles which may have caused a lesser man to throw in the towel, Robert Sutherland, over the years, has remained true to his musical vocation and has proven, as the saying goes, that failure is simply success turned inside out.
His determination has paid off and the singer, who is affectionately called Marky, is now reaping that success with a number one song in places as far flung as Australia, while enjoying acclaim in Jamaica, North America and the Caribbean.
Interestingly, Robert’s musical sojourn in the early nineties can be traced to the football field, where he had a meeting that surely must have been orchestrated by ‘fate’. A budding song-writer at that time, the young Robert’s footsteps crossed the path of the talented guitar player Steve Golding. Not one to let an opportunity slip by, Robert approached Golding to teach him the guitar, an instrument which Marky already owned.
Golding said yes and from then, the football field really became a ‘field of play’ in every sense of the word. The combination of an excellent tutor and a dedicated student meant that Robert soon became proficient and as his guitar playing skills grew, he was able to harness his song-writing ability.
Robert and his guitar and the songs he was working con ould be heard coming from the budding songwriter in his community. Some of the works must have sounded interesting as a famous son of the area was attracted to the efforts. This son, Prilly Hamilton – former lead vocalist of the Third World Band – recorded some of the material Robert wrote with at least one, “Night Doctor”, making it into the Jamaican charts.
Robert migrated to the United States where he continued to fly the Jamaica flag high, representing reggae music in its truest, positive forms.
In 2010, Robert found the right groove with the song Times So Hard, a social lament which pierces right through to the core of the matter. Released on the Nijeri Records label, Times So Hard has claimed its space on musical charts and Robert Sutherland is certainly proving that hard work and determination is a winning combination.

New Record REGGAE MUSIC LIVES Available Now on iTunes.
Gramps Morgan declares REGGAE MUSIC LIVES
|Atlanta, GA, April 23, 2012 With a mission to heal the world through music, Soul Train Award nominee, Gramps Morgan unleashes his second, solo, album Reggae Music Lives tomorrow (April 24th) on iTunes, independently, on his Dada Son Entertainment label. A musical therapy of sorts, Reggae Music Lives is filled with angelic harmonies, authentic compositions and a unique sound brand, Gramps calls "Rockaz". Reggae Music Lives is more than Reggae; it's world-beat, with a little bit of country, a taste of what Americans call rap-Jamaicans call it toasting; mix it with a hint of r 'n' b, a dash of blues synthesized with contemporary reggae that maintains the integrity of the original art form and you get a sense of the musical accents that help to make Reggae Music Livescomplete.
After two years in the making, Reggae Music Lives arrives with inspiration, healing and Gramps' determination to make positive changes in the world. The album's first single 'The Almighty' topped the charts in Jamaica, South Florida and New York while 'Life Too Short', released on March 28th, advanced in the fight for justice in the case of Trayvon Martin. Consequently, team Dada Son decided to donate part of the sale proceeds to the family of the slain Florida teenager. The song has since been added to the Justice for Trayvon Martin Foundation website (http://justicetm.org/tributes/) where he is listed as an "Official Donor" for his commitment.
Meanwhile, Mark Brantley, Senior Lawyer and Leader of the Opposition in the National Parliament of St. Kitts and Nevis says: "There is no voice in reggae music today as distinctive as that of Gramps Morgan. His sophomore album reminds us of the deeply spiritual roots of reggae music. Gramps' ability to make music with a global appeal which touches the human spirit and soothes the soul has been taken to new heights in his latest release. I believe that this new effort by this Grammy award winning artist will be a major hit with lovers of conscious reggae music the world over. But don't take my word for it. Pick up a copy, put your feet up and let the music wash over you."
Reggae Music Lives is an evolution of Gramps' professional and musical growth expressed through his singing, narratives, arrangements and compositions. His melodies and hooks are seasoned with mature, worldly lyrics that are delivered flawlessly. All of his experiences have culminated in the creation of a universal sound that he says stems from exposure.
"I've grown so much as a producer, song writer and vocalist. Overall, my experience from touring and working with India Arie; watching John Legend perform every night; touring with different artists; working with the different producers (on this album) and getting a chance to work with my brother Peetah one-on-one writing songs; it's brought me to a whole other level. My experience really came into play in making this. I think this album is really the best of the brand called Gramps Morgan; as a product, you finally get the sound of Gramps Morgan. The first album was just discovering, getting it and learning myself. Gramps Morgan has been born on this album. "
|The Sound of Gramps Morgan
|A personal favourite of Morgan's on the album sees the return of India Arie, reuniting with Gramps on "Want Fi Charge Wi" a song whose distinct sound is inspired by African rhythms as is "I Hear You Calling", an ode to Africa. Meanwhile new creative partnerships were also forged on this project, one such collaboration was with renowned duo, Stanley "Rellee" Hayden and Alberto "AL" Cruz also known as the A-Team (Jay Z, Mary J. Blige, Sean 'P-Diddy' Combs, The Notorious B.I.G., KRS 1, Shabba Ranks, Bounty Killer, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Lauryn Hill, Deborah Cox, etc...) on the song called DREAM.
One of the most promising tracks on the album, DREAM, is as inspiring as it is universal, in message and in sound. When Gramps sings "...celebrate wherever you are, keep on striving for your dream, just lift your head high, let your spirit fly, dream away..." one is reminded to persevere; the song offers hope and is that motivator everyone needs.
Another first, and what Gramps describes as "a dream" was working with the legendary, Clive Hunt (The Rollings Stones, Maxi Priest, Jimmy Cliff, Peter Tosh, Beres Hammond). Hunt produced three of the thirteen songs on Reggae Music Lives including the title track, which is an unapologetic declaration of the state of Reggae music; and on two love songs that will create their own 'baby boom' "Find Myself Thinking" and "I Know It's Love". Gramps Morgan fans get a different side of Gramps on "Could Dj (Dem Neva Know)" here the singer switches to a toasting style delivery over a phat beat infused with elements of rap, blues, and some rock riffs.
Like his first album 2 Sides of My Heart Vol. 1 Gramps has again assembled an incredible pool of talent from the novice to the accomplished musicians and producers alike, including his seventeen year old son Jemere Morgan, Jason 'J-Vibe' Farmer, Llamar "Riff Raff" Brown, Delroy "Delly" Foster and Kemar "Flava" McGregor.
The songs on Reggae Music Lives are well rounded and crafted with diverse themes from romantic and universal love; to global consciousness and justice, to living in the moment and being grateful. Reggae Music Lives is mature and contemporary, it's the kind of music that can rock on any gadget at work, home or at play.
Reggae Music Lives is about the preservation of art, music and culture and Gramps wants the world to know that "Reggae music is here to stay."

Inner Circle Headlines Jamaica50 Celebration NY Central Park Summer Stage w/ Israel Vibrations & The Mighty Diamonds
8.19.2012 | 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Celebrate Jamaica's 50th anniversary of independence with this day of Jamaican reggae music.
To anyone who's familiar with Inner Circle, the GRAMMY® winning band's 20-year-plus history in reggae has had a long string of successes. Inner Circle's special brand of pop-oriented Jamaican beats and energy-filled live performances have allowed the band to transcend the traditional reggae niche and enjoy widespread crossover appeal. From the launch of their first album in 1978 entitled, Everything Is Great, to the launch of the album, Bad Boys which became an international hit featuring the title track as well as the dance party favorite "Sweat," Inner Circle's brand of unforgettable hooks and island beats has kept the band a mainstay in the reggae world.
The story of reggae group Israel Vibration's success starts out with their humble beginnings as children battling polio in a Jamaican rehabilitation center. Cecil Spence (Skelly) and Lascelle Bulgin (Wiss) bonded through music while in the clinic and quickly became friends. As the duo got older, they found the faith of Rastafari and created songs which expressed their spiritual beliefs. Since then, the duo's music has been spellbinding audiences for over two decades with their mix of traditional roots reggae and deeply spiritual messages such as the critically acclaimed album, On The Rock and its follow-up Free To Move, which reached number one on the CMJ New World charts.
The Mighty Diamonds are the most consistent and long-running reggae trio in Jamaican musical history. For over forty years the group has been entertaining and educating the world with their conscious lyrics, soulful harmonies and polished performances that led them to become known as the reggae group with the Motown sound. Their debut album Right Time, has become a reggae classic while the single, "Pass the Kutchie" from the album Changes, became an international hit and has since been covered by reggae group, Musical Youth whose version "Pass the Dutchie" also garnered fame globally. With over forty albums released, the group remains a favorite of the dance hall crowd, roots and progressive audiences.
Head DJ of Eastern Standard Time on WKCR 89.9 FM in New York City, DJ Carter Van Pelt is a true student of Jamaican music of every era, from ska to dancehall. He'll celebrate Jamaica's 50th Anniversary with far-ranging selections covering every era. His WKCR program has earned a worldwide reputation for bringing artists to the studio for historic interviews, augmented with deep cuts, all played from vinyl. Van Pelt is the founder/producer of the popular Coney Island Reggae Soundsystem Series, held each summer on the iconic Coney Island Boardwalk. He also hosts a program on the Internet station Radio Lily.

Dub Nation :: Rising Force for Change
Reggae aficionados will travel with delight on the new trail blazed by Dub Nation’s long-awaited third album, Rising Force for Change.Producer, bassist and Dub Nation mainstay Frank Fantom” Caruso has set forth on an innovative path mixing elements of soul, jazz, hip-hop, rock and even big band, with traditional roots reggae rhythms. Caruso’s time with Motown legends The Temptations resulted in joining forces with Spinners and Temptations’ leading voice GC Cameron and Guadeloupe native Tatiana Miath, a world-class female vocal talent heralded in Europe and the Caribbean.
GC’s 1970s Motown hits It’s a Shame and It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday are re-created in a fresh and powerful style coined “Reggae-Soul,” and are lovingly ornamented with Tatiana’s sweet harmonies and a veritable orchestra of master musicians including many San Francisco Bay area Dub Nation veterans such as original lead vocalist Paul “Fish” Dawson,who provides a colorful accent to the vocal trio. Rising Force for Change never relents from its inspirational prelude to the tasty dub mix conclusion:a judicious blend of rock, soul and reggae.
Dub Nation returns to Festival stages this summer supporting the release of its long-awaited album Rising Force for Change, and renews its musical vows after a lengthy hiatus.
