@JohnQMusik_ Shoots Videos In Jamaica For Debut Album!

John Q, whose given name is John Kwesi Quansah, visited Jamaica recently to shoot two music videos for his latest Reggae Singles “Born Alone” and “Give Me Your Love” ahead of his debut album which is anticipated to be released by year end.

“It’s a pleasure to be back in Jamaica to mark this significant milestone. Reggae is in my blood, and Jamaica is the home of Reggae so it is a seamless match to be able to shoot my videos here,” John Q said. “Born Alone” channels self-love and encourages listeners to empower themselves regardless of their circumstances. The lyrics challenge listeners to take time to make themselves happy, and asks self-evaluating question and encourages them to “Stop trying so hard to be accepted, stop forcing the people to love you”, then settles that true acceptance and loves comes when you are naturally yourself first.

“Give Me Your Love” which is predominantly sung in English and is a Lover’s Rock Reggae song. John Q said the Inspirational track is his way of using Reggae music as a vehicle of change for conscious upward mobility. “We all have greatness in us, but first we must believe it, and then we need to act on it, only then will we achieve our full potential,” he expounded. Ariff Butler, CEO of Bloozick Multimedia, the production company tasked to shoot both videos said his team is looking forward to working with John Q.

Born in West African nation of Ghana, John Q migrated to the United States to further his studies, and has been living there for the past 25 years. He sings in English, Twi and Ga, and is also fluent in Spanish. Despite the upcoming album being his first, his love affair with music started in his teenage years. He was exposed to a variety of genres of music while growing up, but settled on Reggae after hearing Bob Marley’s song “One Drop”. The infectious beat provide soul-reaching inspiration which has been a magnetic-like attraction pulling him back to the music and never allowing him to wander too far.

John Q’s songs including “Born Alone”, “Reggae Babaoo”, “Rain And Sun”, and “Gonna Be More”, his collaboration with Jamaican Gospel Singer/Songwriter Claudius England continues to receive airplay on Radio Stations in the Jamaica, Ghana, the United States, and London.

International Producer Troyton of Troyton Music, is quite optimistic that his latest Riddim project titled Dancehall Bully, is one of the biggest in the Dancehall circuit. The star-studded project was only released a little over a month ago, but is already making the charts and taking over the streets. Dancehall Bully tracks are featured on BBC 1xtra and many more stations, locally and Internationally.

Dancehall Bully featured artistes such as Aidonia, Mavado, Demarco, Jahmiel, Busy Signal, Charly Blacks, I-Octane, Moshan and Theron, and was released on August 26, 2016. Dancehall Bully is distributed by 21st Hapilos, and is available on iTunes, Amazon and all other digital outlets for purchasing. “The Riddim is already creating waves in Dancehall space. It is one of the most talked about Riddims right now, especially since Mavado’s song is seen as a diss track to fellow Deejay Popcaan,” said Troyton.

Troyton is currently in the studio working on another Riddim project for next year. This project is called True Emotions and is set to be released early January. “I am targeting audience worldwide with my productions; I do good quality music and try to incorporate different genres,” said Troyton.

@IshaBlender Has An “Epiphany”!

Isha Williams was a Toddler in the early 1990s, a period of cultural awareness in Dancehall led by a phalanx of Artists, including her father, Everton Blender. Strongly influenced by his message, she followed his path into music as Isha Blender. Her first EP, Epiphany, will be released in October. It contains seven songs with Don’t Be Used, an acoustic number, being the lead.

Blender first recordings began at age 12 with the first being Bad Boy, produced by her father for his Blend Dem label. She continued to record sporadically while attending Garvey Maceo High School in her native Clarendon. Shortly after graduation, she migrated to the United States, settling in South Florida where she is a registered nurse. “Because my dad’s an Entertainer, people think you have to do the same thing, but it doesn’t have to be,” she said. “I kept going away from music, but I was pulled back like magnet to steel.”

Epiphany also contains Testimony, a duet with Capleton, Tonight, Joy, and Babymother. Capleton and Everton Blender were part of the Roots Renaissance of the 1990s that was led by Yasus Afari, Garnet Silk and Tony Rebel. Everton Blender had a series of big hits back then such as Lift Up Your Head, Family Man and Blend Dem. While she counts the ‘old man’ among her biggest influences, Isha Blender says she gets a different vibe listening to different genres. Neo-soul artistes Erykah Badu and Jill Scott, as well as homegrown acts Nadine Sutherland, Etana, Tessanne Chin and Ikaya are also favourites. She is hoping Epiphany will be a career definer. “I want to be an household name as Isha Blender. At the same time I want my songs to uplift and motivate like my Dad.”
