|A cultural roots, reggae-fusion LP, may be just the remedy to soothe the reggae music lover's soul. Delivered in her smooth signature style, Gia Yee’s new album REGGAE PRESCRIPTION, stays true to the roots of reggae and infuses touches of ska and dancehall beats, a little classic funk and vinyl, some R&B, and just a hint of EDM, to keep things interesting and fresh.|
The new album tracks include, roots reggae conscious-raising tracks “GASLIT”, “BOTH FEET”, “ERASED”, and “ANYTHING”; two renditions of a Ska influenced tune called “NOTE TO SELF”; an upbeat funk infused cultural blending song called “YO RASTA”; a Dancehall and EDM influenced track entitled “MY AVATAR”; a smooth lovers-rock mix called “ISLAND NIGHTS”; and the ballad of “RASTA JACK”, which was intentioned to illustrate what true love is like in its most simplistic form.
Extremely grateful for how everything fell into place, Gia expresses feeling truly blessed to have had the opportunity to work with so many top Jamaican musicians and producers while working on her new album. Thrilled about its release and reception, she aims to connect globally in a meaningful way. “I chose my words carefully and try to offer a positive outlook, even if the subject matter happens to be a challenging or emotional one,” she explains and continues.. “ Music is such a powerful force, so I try to stay reverent to that fact, and offer a positive vibe and message – and of course ‘nuff love”.
