His music taps into different feelings and vibes, and on the new single, “Today“, he looks to be more positive.

In a video directed by Audrey Ellis Fox, Q lays it out for his listeners to see that he goes through things. While we all aren’t perfect, we try to make each day better than the last. Life can be confusing, the pressure is getting worsa, and the days may have us turning to vices for the numbness, but Q, like many of us, believes that better is in the near future.

This is Junior Byles - Fade Away (1976)

OLDIES SUNDAY: Junior Byles – Fade Away (1976)


Today’s Oldies Sunday selection comes from Reggae artist Junior Byles. Titled “Fade Away” which was released in 1976 under Eagle Records, was produced by Joseph Hoo Kim and was featured on the soundtrack for the hit Jamaican film “Rockers“. Fade Away” speaks on the way people value material wealth over their own souls, corruption, the ills of society, and preaching that they will all fade away soon. “Fade Away” was hailed as Byles’ best work and became a big hit not only in Jamaica, but in the UK where it was largely successful and covered years later by the New Age Steppers group.

Since his heyday, not much has been heard of Junior Byles. He released many more singles and albums but over the years he suffered bouts of depression after recieving many tragics news. There were times he was witnessed living on the streets and making frequent visits to hospitals. His last big performance was in Jamaica in 2004 which recieved positive reviews and led to a short tour later that year.

Thank you Junior Byles!
