Storm - Contributed

Signature Records Recording artiste Storm, born Kelly-Ann Minto, is steadily creating waves with the recent release of her debut album 'Nostalgia', taking listeners on a Sentimental Journey to the good old days of reggae and dancehall.

Considered the Jamaican version of Tracy Chapman, Storm has become a household name in Baltimore where she resides and has shared stage with an array of artistes like Sanchez, Junior Reid, Turbulence, Buju Banton, Ken Boothe, Mavado, Cham, Junior Kelly, Yami Bolo, Johnny Osbourne, Junior Cat, Junior Demus, Boom Dandimite, Noppa Toppa, General Pecos, Lady Saw, Sean Paul, Beenie Man, and many more.

Nostalgia consists of 16 tracks, and has been storming the airwaves in various parts of Europe, USA, Africa and the rest of the world, on both Internet radio and mainstream radio Stations worldwide. The album boasts remixes and collaborations from foundation artistes who have contributed greatly to reggae and dancehall music over the years. Featured among the collabs are Jc Lodge, Michael Buckley, General Pecos and Eddie Fitzroy with the remix of his 1983 hit single Princess Black.

In her own words, Storm said, "The album is very dear to me as it brings back the essence of the good old days of roots-reggae music and it affords me the opportunity to pay homage to some of its icons who deserve great respect and honour. They have paved the way for artistes like me and their works, in my opinion, needs more acknowledgements. I think the album is a colourful one that encompasses the mellow tones and sounds of lover's rock, the upbeat tempo and bouncy flair of dancehall reggae, and also a soulful meditation of praises and upliftment. I think the album is well balanced as it brings the listener back to the core of reggae with somewhat of a modern twist. This year, I plan to take the world by storm, so get ready to be blown away".

Nostalgia is distributed by VP Records and is available on iTunes and all other digital-download platforms. Storm is currently in studio recording and making preparation for her promotional album tour.
