Oriel to release follow-up single


US-based reggae singer Oriel is working assiduously to establish himself on the international reggae scene.

The soft-spoken singer, who originally hails from the Caribbean island of Dominica, recently performed alongside Ziggy Marley at an event which was held at the famed Carnegie Library Music Hall in Homestead, PA.

The event, which also featured the Pittsburgh-based reggae band Truths & Rites, was a part of Ziggy Marley's Fly Rasta Tour.

"It was an awesome experience, Ziggy is a great artiste, and it's a real honour to share the stage with him. I also did a show recently with Luciano. this was another great experience. It's always good to work on the same bill with artistes like Ziggy Marley and Luciano because of the level of exposure you get, and you also learn a lot from them, too," he said.

Oriel is working on a number of projects, including his debut album to be released before year end. He is also applying the finishing touches to his Revoluters mix tape.

He will soon release a brand-new single called Serious. "This single will be the follow-up to my previously released single called Sticks & Stones, it's a really great track with a very positive message. I expect the fans to embrace it in very much the same way they embraced Sticks & Stones because of its message. I think it will do very well, especially in places where culture music is very strong," said Oriel.
