Reggae Artiste CHAANT Releases Debut Album
The singer CHAANT has released his debut album titled ‘Missing You Babe’. The seven song set is an interesting mix of songs produced by Richard Foulks for Vonleerich Music. It exemplifies authentic Jamaican reggae, delivering catchy and rhythmic mixes of mainly rich lovers rock, with a touch of roots, reggae-pop, reggae fusion and dancehall.
According to the artiste, the overall messages encapsulated could be described as “songs igniting love and togetherness in the hearts of its listeners”. Most of the tracks explore everyday romantic relationship issues such as ‘new found love’, ‘commitment’, and ‘breaking up’. There is also a bit of social commentary which points the listeners to the singer’s conscious side.

If you wish, and we really wish you wouldn't, like to be removed from this list, please reply with REMOVE in subject line.
It will make us very sad if you do, and perhaps your removal will be the one the makes us decide this no longer worth doing at all, and all the information we provide will go away forever and musicians will sit home alone at night and cry because they have no one to play for because no one knows about their shows.
