Isha Bel drops new album
Last month, reggae songstress Isha Bel released her latest album Hear Me Now (One Woman Army) on her own Kalinga Records label.
Featuring nine tracks of roots and rubadub, this album is the first of two being produced by the artiste. At the moment, plans are in the works for the release of three music videos, including one for the album's first track, Likkle Prayer.
Serving as both producer and executive producer on the album, Isha Bel collaborated with a team of producers from around the world to release this high- quality production, including Chaka Demus (Bright Star Productions), France-based Idlers Corner Records, Belgium-based Selassie I Sounds, Dougie Conscious, Andre Wright, Zion Sinclair, and Lion Pen Studios.
Gracing the roots scene for the past decade, the artiste is known for previous releases such as Locks Grow, They Should Know, and Bless Jah.
"There is only one Isha Bel, so the expressions echoing from me are uniquely my fingerprint and thought processes. My music is high-grade roots and rubadub. Hardly any Jamaican artiste out there right now is mixing roots reggae with sound system rubadub style. I bring a dynamic edge with timely messages," she said.
With Jamaican culture playing a heavy hand in crafting her sound, the artiste has managed to deliver something new and unique to the industry, keeping thought-provoking and uplifting messages at the core of her music.
"The message in my music is a call to order for humans to find their inner strength and know themselves. These are words the world needs to hear in this time of uncertainty. It is reassuring, triumphant, and encouraging," she added.
While continuing promotions for album, Isha Bel is currently working on new projects including, the completion of a live album.
