Goldy wants 'no war'
Reggae singer Goldy is following in the footsteps of his father Willie Francis, the well-known ska/reggae singer and producer from the 60s and 70s, by continuing his musical legacy.
His latest promotional effort is a track called 'No War', lifted from his forthcoming EP, '14 Karrat'.
The single is typically reggae and focuses primarily on illuminating current social and political problems that we are facing today.
Goldy has managed to blend his personal experiences and hardships to showcase his growth as a person and highlight a more nuanced outlook on life, which is why he decided to pen the song.
“More than anything I want to bring about change. Too much violence and corruption happening right now and it is spoiling the image of our beautiful island. I want it to stop; I don’t want to see us fight against each other. Above all, race, ethnicity, religion, we are all human beings, we should unite and live as one,” he expressed.
The accompanying music video is currently racking up views on YouTube. It was shot in Kintyre and directed by East Side Films.
