Chabano Nkani dedicates album to late mother
Singer Chabano Nkani is dedicating his debut album 'Phases' to his late mother. The album is due for release today.
"My mom's death touched me deeply so I had to take a break from the music but now I am back and I am dedicating this album to her," said Chabano. His mother died from cancer.
Chabano, who got his start in the music industry working at Byron Murray's In the Streetz Records, did road management for artistes including Hawkeye and Alozade, before he moved into music production.
His production credits include songs for Half Pint, Luciano and Warrior King.
The 13-track Phases was produced by Isle of Springs Records. It is being distributed by VPAL Music.
Producer Richard Shams Browne worked on two songs, namely Sorry and Write Your Name Across My Heart, a cover of the Kenny Rogers original.
Musicians include Browne, Glen Browne, Jubba White (drums) and Robert Browne and Ernie Wilks (guitar).
The album is led by the first single Party which is already gaining some traction on reggae radio stations stateside.
Born Richard Brown, Chabano is originally from St Andrew. He resided in Christiana, Manchester, and Spalding in Clarendon before relocating to Kingston.
For the past decade, he has been living in Hartford, Connecticut.
Phases will be available on all digital and streaming platforms including iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Google Play and Deezer.
