Nesbeth dabbles in music production
While many artiste strive to have a successful recording career, not everyone is content in such a solitary role. Multifaceted entertainer Nesbeth is making that very clear with his latest venture.
The reggae stalwart has been expanding his musical portfolio, not only as a performer and songwriter but also a producer. Unknown to most, the Rastafarian crooner has been dabbling into production and is credited with the composition of Hundu Lay Lay and Marijuana, two of the many tracks on his current EP, Victory, being distributed by Zojak Worldwide.
However, it's his latest effort, My Dream, that has been attracting industry attention. The catchy yet thought-provoking composition has been getting solid rotation in dancehall and continues to steadily infiltrate FM airwaves across the diaspora.
After premiering recently on BBC 1Xtra with Seani B, the Entertainment Soul-produced single has seen a significant spike in spins via that market, a trend Nesbeth hopes will expand to wider Europe.
"This is the first single I've released since returning from Europe and, therefore, we want to make sure everything is done properly. Production is something I have always enjoyed. Not many know me in such a capacity but I like to be involved is all aspects to the creation of the music, so venturing into production is only fitting."
The singer recently received clearance from the US embassy, granted a three-year work permit for that country.
