Canadian and International recording artist Kreesha Turner shares how her new album, Tropic Electric came to fruition, not just from her heart, but with one of the super producers she worked with, The Wizard, as well as recording the album in her native Jamaica. As Kreesha explains, the ‘vibe has to be right,’ and right it is!

Although Jemere Morgan is young, he comes from a seasoned stable of musicians, including veteran recording artist Gramps Morgan who happens to be his Dad! Jemere opens up about his thoughts on being called the ‘Just Beiber’ of the Caribbean, and how he balances school, touring, and being a kid!

Noel Gourdin’s music can only be described a ‘Soul Movement!’ Marcus Weller sits down with the artist where the two of them chat about the music made by Mr. Gourdin (pronounced Gour-deen), his southern Mississippi roots, and making music with paper and pen – even to this day!
Barbados has always had multi-talented artists, who shine on international stages. In the case of Big Red, his shine is en route to the status of Alison Hinds!
