Jubillant promotes 'Holding On'
Freshas Production recording artiste Jubillant is overjoyed at the success of his latest single, Holding On, which is getting favourable rotation on FM radio.
"The song is doing well, the feedback has been so incredible that we are shooting a video for it this month," he said.
The single, which was recorded at Tuff Gong studio, boasts an all-star cast of musicians such as drummer George 'Dusty' Miller, bass guitar Lloyd Parks, saxophonist Dean Fraser, keyboardist Corey Clarke, and melody guitar player Lamont 'Monty' Savory. The song was mixed by Colin 'Bulby' York.
Born Wayne Williams, Jubillant grew up in the Waltham Park and Molynes Road areas before moving to Braeton, St Catherine. During his teens, he attended Calabar High school where he first fell in love with reggae music.
"We always loved music, but we started taking it serious in 2008 when I recorded my first single with Out of Stars Productions. The song was called Hard Ears, and it was released on iTunes," he said.
Then he took an extended hiatus from music as he concentrated on making a living. However, the siren call of music called to him still.
"I got the name 'Jubillant' from the dictionary still. I liked the positive vibe of the word, 'jubilant', which means jovial, so mi just add an extra 'L' so my name can be marketed properly on a global level," he said.
He has plans to establish his own band and to tour overseas, especially Europe. "Ah straight music mi a deal with, but mi still juggle fi support myself, right now Freshas Production ah tek it to the world," he said.
