Thanks to the Roots Revival on Jamaica a bunch of young and talented artists producing their own interpretation of Roots Reggae which was the export hit of the island in the 1970’s and early 80’s. After Dancehall dominated the musical landscape of the caribbean island, thanks to this new generation of musicans the countrys musical heritage is backon the track. Born in Kingston (Jamaica) 28 year old singer Samory – I is an outstanding example of this new generation of Jamaican artists.
In 2013 Samory I has decided to take his career seriously by recording. He met with First Born Management Bridgett Anderson who has been responsible for the careers of Garnet Silk and Jahmali to name a few. This synergy resulted in the young artiste performing for the first time at the Digicel’s Bob Marley Tribute at Emancipation Park and the Dennis Brown tribute on the Water Front. He has been performing at quite a few events since the launch of his career in 2013.
His recording career has also taken great strides with him recording his first single for AJANG Records “Just Believe”. He has also recorded a few tracks with renowned producer Niney The Observer. This allowed him the distinct honour of working with ace musicians the likes of Sly Dunbar, the late Style Scott, Errol “Flabba” Holt, Dalton Brownie, Dean Fraser and Nambo Robinson to name a few. He is presently in studio with Rory Stone Love recording his debut album on the Black Dub label. Both producer and artiste are excited about this project. Tracks on the album include “Take Me Oh Jah”, “Rasta No Gangsta”. The first single was released in December 2014 is entitled “African Queen”. The launch for this will coincide with the RJR Groups Kingston Music Week. The sky is the limit for this talented lyricist and singer.
