PRESS RELEASE: @DennyToTheFray Talks Safe Sex!


Toronto based Reggae Rapper Denny To The Fray tackles the issue of safe sex on his latest single of the same name. The track, released May 14, is taken from his upcoming five-track EP, “TFP”. “The goal is to bring out in the open subjects people are uncomfortable talking about, like using protection when engaging in sexual intercourse. No one should be afraid to talk about sex. There are a million songs all about sex, but, unfortunately, not as many discuss what is appropriate and safe,” said Denny To The Fray, 34.

“Safe Sex” is co-produced by Mark “Zeej Maverick” Sterling and Denny Walcott. “TFP”, which is earmarked for a June 30 release date, boasts tracks including “Don’t Shoot”, “Safe Sex”, “Bobby”, “Four Four”, and “Keep Blazing 2.0”. A past student of Clarendon College, Denny to the Fray (given name Denny Fray Walcott) was born in Lionel Town in that parish. At 12, he built a sound system and played at gigs throughout Clarendon. He migrated to Canada in 1997 where he studied law at Sheridan College. His recording break would come in 2013 with the release of “Keep Blazing”.

“I intend to leave a manuscript to living a positive, meaningful life with my music. I want to educate our young people while entertaining them.”

It isn’t unusual for the child of an Entertainer to follow in their parent’s footsteps one way or the other as at times they bring a modern take on their parent’s creations, or create their own lane. Some of the most famous off springs include Stephen, Ziggy, and Damian “Junior Gong” Marley (Sons of Bob Marley), Chino and Di Genius (Sons of Freddie McGregor), Junior Tucker (Son of Jimmy Tucker), Morgan Heritage (Children of Denroy Morgan), Tarrus Riley (Son of Jimmy Riley), Queen Ifrica (Daughter of Derrick Morgan), Protoje (Son of Lorna Bennett), Chronixx (Son of Chronicle) and many more.

PRESS RELEASE: @SielleMusic Collaborates With @DuttyPaul On “Easy Mistake”


Toronto based chanteuse, Sielle, has collaborated with Sean Paul on her recent release entitled, “Easy Mistake”. Laced under a heavy dancehall crossover rhythm, Sielle’s silky voice delivers smooth lyrics, melodies and harmonies.  Interwoven throughout the record, Sean Paul rides the rhythm with catchy hooks and verses. The synergy between Sielle and Sean Paul is a chemistry designed to make a world hit.

Produced by hit-makers, Matthew “Esco” Thompson; 957 Muzik and Smokin Acez Media, “Easy Mistake” is an appealing tune that will have the summer buzzing.  The song, written by Sielle, captures a love story based on a couple engulfed in a steamy relationship. Captivated by her man, Sielle wants to make amends. But she must move on, because love becomes a burden.  She knows that loving him is such an easy mistake, yet Sean Paul tries to sway her direction. Easy Mistake is a record that most people can relate to.

From the age of 5, Sielle has been trained in classical music and attended performing arts schools. Her passion for music led her to produce, write and perform, honing her own sound. This has allowed her to claim a presence across different genres of music to include pop, reggae, folk, classical, opera, and R&B.

Growing up in Little Burgundy, Montreal and being exposed to a plethora of cultures, Sielle is bilingual and sings in French. She has performed at Nappa Valley’s Bottlerock Festival 2014 and in 2015, where Jim Peterik featured her on hit song Eye of the Tiger.  She also did Montreal Reggae Festival two years in a row, smaller festivals and clubs throughout Canada. Previously released songs, include Little Girl, Change You, Runaway and Together which was penned by the legendary David Pack of Ambrosia.

Although Sielle’s sound is characterized as alternative soul; this collaboration has allowed her a chance to tap into her Jamaican roots to deliver a masterpiece.  “I want to touch people with my music, my music is a dairy, what I feel, what I have been feeling throughout my life,” explains Sielle with hopes of changing lives through her music.

However, working with Sean Paul on “Easy Mistake”, has had a major impact on Sielle.  This collaboration has allowed her to go into her Jamaican roots with all of her life’s experience as an artist to deliver a masterpiece.  The goal is to propel into the international market that is ready to accept another musical star named Sielle.
