Spanner Banner

Reggae artiste Spanner Banner is generating a new buzz in the reggae market with the single, 'Love Is A Champion', which has been getting favourable airplay on local radio and Internet radio stations worldwide.

"The single is doing well on radio, especially in Canada and St Maarten, and with the release of the video, there is a lot of excitement and interest because people rate the video," he said.

He started out the year 2014 with a bang with a brilliant performance at this year's Rebel Salute 2014. And now he is working on an EP which will feature seven tracks, including Love Is A Champion. This will be his first major release of recorded material since 2009.

"Time is of the essence when it comes to an album. I had been busy doing other things, and I never got the time to do it the right way. I want it to be very special, I have been writing and getting the right producers for the project, and it is now full speed ahead for a summer release," he said.

His last full-length project, I'm A Winner, released in 2009, was chock-full of musical gems such as Rolling Stones, Solid As A Rock, One Love, She Groove Me and the title track, I'm A Winner. The album was produced by his family label Bonner Cornerstone Music, along with producers such as Don Carleone, Donovan Germaine and Kemar 'Flava' McGregor.

After more than two decades, Spanner Banner's music is still potent. He is a member of the talented Bonner brothers which includes Pliers (of Chaka Demus and Pliers fame), Richie Spice and Snatcha.
